You try so hard in your relationships. 

(Maybe even too hard.) You’re used to sacrificing for others because it feels like the right thing to do. 

And besides, it’s just so stinkin’ hard to say “no.” 

Which means that you feel drained and depleted — especially this time of year.

But you don’t complain, because a Christian woman simply shouldn’t be a whiner.

So you keep on keeping on. 

You put others first. You say “yes” to all the requests. And you pay extra-close attention to what others feel and think.

All. The. Time.

But what if you don’t have to try so hard?

Just imagine…

 ✔︎ No longer replaying every single interaction over and over in your mind, thinking of what you should (or shouldn’t) have said.

✔︎ Saying “no” with confidence, knowing that you have given the best answer for everyone involved — including yourself. 

✔︎ Not feeling resentful when you serve others because you have enough bandwidth to do the giving and still have a life of your own. 

✔︎ Catching yourself as you start to worry about what others think — and stopping. 

✔︎ Never again “faking fine.”

Leslie has helped me understand where my emotional overwhelm actually comes from. And she’s given me super-practical tools for living with more calm, confidence, and candor — especially in my closest relationships.

Meet Your Coach: Leslie Newman

For so long, my life looked “just fine” on the outside. No one ever suspected how I felt on the inside. (I made sure of that!)

 As a tender-hearted Christian woman, I gave. And gave. And gave. 

I felt constantly depleted. There was so much to do — and not enough time to do it — especially during the holidays. 

At a time when I most wanted to experience peace, I found myself overwhelmed by my own thoughts and emotions — and by the emotions of others, too. 

I didn’t understand what was causing all this overwhelm in my life, but I lived with it — accepting it as normal and hiding how bad I felt inside.  

I know, from personal experience, how hard it can be to break free from life-long patterns. I also know that life on the other side is so much more rewarding and peaceful.

Now, there’s so much more room for whats really important during the holiday season.  


Leslie’s teaching was like a breath of fresh air to me! I was so encouraged to find ways to help me de-stress and take a step back from the pressures of life. Her message was clear and easy to implement into my own daily life.
