Leslie Nease Gets Gutsy for God

I had listened to Leslie on WMIT for weeks and finally got to meet her today at the Catawba Valley Women’s Show. Most people would know her as the contestant in Survivor China who wouldn’t bow down to the Buddha statue and ended up getting kicked off in the 3rd episode.

She told the audience today that she could have just prayed to Jesus while she knelt there and no one else would have been the wiser, but likened it to kissing her husband as she went out of the house and then taking her wedding ring off. She needed to show her faith to people no matter what.

She shared that you don’t do this by judging others and you don’t beat them over the head with it. You just hold to your values and people will respect that.
Something else she said that I liked was “a saved life is a changed life.”
