Leslie Alberta Sousa is the daughter of three-time published poet Alberta Miriam Isaacson and discovered her own love for writing in high school when a teacher told her that her writing showed talent. Leslie desires to continue in her mother's legacy, not only in her love for writing but, more importantly, in her love for the Lord. When Leslie was nine, her mother was told Leslie was going blind, part of what inspired her poetry and also deepened her relationship with the Lord. After Leslie's mother passed away in 2013 at the hospice house, Leslie found a fourth book of poetry her mother had written but had not yet published. Leslie soon found herself writing poems in answer to those of her mother's, including one about her mother's treasured pink umbrella. The book Leslie wrote and recently published, “Let the Son Shine In” is a unique mother-daughter expression of love never-ending, loss, and the hope we all can have in the Lord when we entrust all we have to Him.

Leslie Alberta Sousa has a tender heart for people and serves as an online mentor for Focus on the Family as she enjoys encouraging and inspiring people in general. She is a certified "Real Colors" administrator but her real passion is speaking about God's life-changing power at women's conferences and retreats. Leslie is the administrator of a Christian community page on Facebook called, "A moment with Alberta" that she fills with inspirational posts, hope for the lost, and a daily reminder of the love God has for each and every one of us. She attends Calvary Chapel where she volunteers as a greeter.

2019 Workshops

Women's Ministry: Don’t Be Content Standing In The Doorway


Let this workshop remind you with depth and simplicity of what a life in Christ should be like. It is God who grafts us onto the vine. It is His desire to nourish us, provide for us, and help us become faithful and fruitful followers and doers for His kingdom. We simply need to consent. Let your walk with Christ become exciting again. Come and be reminded that His yoke is easy and His burden is light!

Women's Ministry: Decluttering Your Home and Your Heart


Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed by unnecessary clutter? Do you want to simplify your life but you aren’t sure how to get started? If you are more interested in impacting people and concentrating on God‘s calling in your life, this workshop is for you! The items in your home and in your closet reveal a lot about what’s important to you. Learn how to let go of “stuff” that has outlived its purpose and learn how to accumulate “stuff” you can never have too much of. “Let’s let go of what we can’t keep anyhow, and cling to what we can never lose!” - Jim Elliot. Are you ready to let go of yesterday’s cutter and reach for something new?
