"Don't let the terrorists win. Don't let despair, cancer, the suffering of others steal the joy God has for you today even in the tiny places of your life. The battleground is not just overseas---it's right here in front of you: the basket of dirty laundry, the stacked dishes beside the sink, the sandwiches for the shelter, the child awaiting your attention, the report that's due tomorrow. . . Offer it all back in gratitude and joy. Refuse guilt. Know God is at work here as surely as He is work in Palestine, in the terrorist camps, in hospitals. Yes, feel small and insignificant, but know He is the Magnificent God of Tiny Things. That's us."

We're all thinking about gender these days. For me, when I came to Alaska 38 years ago, I had to become a man. And I taught my daughter to be a  man---until I changed my mind: "Becoming a Man": http://www.leslieleylandfields.com

I've been an ape all winter. So much for dignity!! And--how absurd given the chaotic, violent world we live in. But something incredible happened along the way.http://www.leslieleylandfields.com

Story
Tagline
Alaska-dweller, author of 9 books, galavanting speaker, lover of all things, true, lovely and possible.
Introduction
I'm the author of 9 books, a national speaker, blogger, lover of all things beautiful and true, especially in matters of theology  and culture. Some favorite topics: the spirituality of food, parenting, wilderness, incarnational living, forgiveness. My books include Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hate and Hurt, Surviving the Island of Grace, The Spirit of Food: 34 Writers on Feasting and Fasting Toward God. And to complicate this bio, I live on Kodiak Island, Alaska, where I work in commercial fishing with my husband and six children (mostly grown) on a remote wilderness island. From there, I direct the Harvester Island WIlderness Workshop. More here:
