Fired Up About Forty with Leslie Barry

Leslie Barry is my friend in real life. She is high-energy and very passionate about people. She is also refreshingly authentic and has such a tender heart. I have learned a lot from her example and I wanted you to hear from her as well!

What we chat about:

  • Adjusting to married life and striking a balance in the home
  • How communicating with her spouse lead to a fantastic 40th birthday surprise
  • Why Leslie says turning 40 gave her a new lease on life
  • The exploration of finding out who you are and importance of knowing yourself
  • The struggle and reward of being obedient to God
  • How to cultivate contentment in your life
  • The steps Leslie has taken to get past her people pleasing tendencies
  • The healthy side of comparing yourself to others
