Why did Leslie Jackson write this book?
Leslie tells those who ask this question: “Many years ago my oldest daughter said I should write a book about my life, I shrugged her suggestion off. But then a few years ago God told me to write. So, I figured I better write... As I wrote about the past events in my life, God guided and helped me heal from all of the past shame, pain and trauma. Because of what I worked through during the process of writing this book, I am a different person now - a healthy, victorious person as I celebrate where I have been and where I am now. I'm not claiming to be perfect, but I am now renewed.”
A question for you the reader: Are you tired of simply accepting what comes at you instead of living the courageous and fulfilling life you were meant to live?
Leslie Jackson understands that feeling. In her book, Change Course; One Lady’s Race from Acceptance to Adventure, Leslie shares the serious trials she’s faced in her life—and how she overcame them.
In facing challenges with her health, as a child and an adult, she knows what it’s like to be frustrated with no answers. In wrestling with a strong sugar addiction, she’s experienced feeling out of control. And in losing her brother in a car accident, she’s wrestled with the kind of grief that seems like it will never end. Also, more than once Leslie dealt with divorce and the need to re-build her life and care for her children as a single mother all at the same time.
But that’s not the end of her story. Along the way, Leslie learned strategies not just to cope with her trials, but to face them head on and win!
And now, she shares how you can do the same thing. In her book, Leslie tells her life story and lessons she’s learned that you can apply to your life right away.

Imagine succeeding in your business because you now have the courage to face your challenges and move forward.

In her book, Change Course, you’ll discover how to change your mindset from one of defeat to one of victory. You’ll learn how to break the lifestyle and thought patterns that hold you back from your true potential. And you’ll find out how to step out of the common “acceptance mindset” and into your true potential for adventure.
