Leslie Montgomery
According to Leslie Montgomery’s mother, Dianne, she was born with a pen in one hand and a phone in the other. She began writing screenplays and commercials from home when she was only six years old, has kept a journal of her life since she was eight, and had her first article published in her hometown newspaper in Mountain Home, Idaho when she was only twelve. From there, Leslie began writing for various newspapers across America until she became a Christian at the age of twenty-three in 1993.

Since her conversion, Leslie has been a continual contributor to several ministries under the umbrella of Focus on the Family, authored hundreds of articles for several prominent faith-based magazines, ghostwritten numerous books for leading Christian authors, and written seven of her own books. Early in her writing career, Leslie was the director of publications, managing editor, and staff writer for the American Association of Christian Counselors. As a writer on diverse topics on one end of the spectrum to the other, Leslie finds much joy in revealing her secret to writing success.

“People always ask me how I decide what topic to write on,” Montgomery says, continuing. “All I can say is, I write what I’m prompted to write from the Spirit of the Lord, and He has always revealed the Biblical support and research necessary to support that which He asks me to pen. So far it’s worked well for me!”

Leslie is a known throughout her world-wide travels as a humorous and inspirational speaker, who filets her heart to listeners and readers on behalf of glorifying God.

“I recognize that I have nothing apart from God to share with people,” confesses Montgomery. “I find that when I speak from my heart, from my failures and disappointments, and share how the Lord has brought me up out of the mire and muck of my own sin and that of others, that people relate.”

Leslie writes from her 160-acre ranch in Lake Norden, South Dakota. She is married to Dallas Anderson, Pastor and Director of Proclamation Ministries for the Billy Graham Center and Missions America. Together they have approximately 60 horses, two dogs, and an unknown amount of cats and wildlife. Leslie is the mother of two grown children and as of date, the grandmother of two grandsons and a granddaughter.
