I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this. You don't even have to post it. I was just hopeful that you would make sure Leslie knew. I teach 1st grade Sunday school at my church, and the lesson this week was "God wants us to live for Him." We were talking about ways that we could live for God in our everyday lives. One of my children asked me if I watched Survivor. I told her that I did, and she said, "Leslie lived for God, didn't she?"
What an witness and what a blessing. I am so sorry that anyone would say anything negative. Satan is alive and well, isn't he? God bless and stand firm.
Love, Tina


oh man! I really liked Stephanie's blog... that really stinks about all those rude people. Is there anyway you can post what Stephanie wrote about why Leslie said she wasn't religious but had a relationshp with Jesus Christ?? I was trying to refer a friend to the blog who was asking why she said that... and then I noticed it was closed! I'm really bummed about that.. Thanks so much!!


Unfortunately there is not whole lotta love in the Bible either. Yet no one seems to read that (large) part.


Am I surprised about the reactions and comments to the temple incident with Leslie on Survivor? Unfortunately not. These blogs are just invitations for the devil to present himself, in a big way.
These blogs and this internet allow for temptations and indesretions that tear families apart everyday - why would what people think of Leslis's actions be any different.
What I mean by that is that has allowed people to come in with their judgemental and self righteous selves. To attack, point fingers and take away from the real purpose of why Leslie is on Survivor.
Leslie might not be liked by everyone, or say and do what everyone would do if put in the same situation. But, that is what makes us who we are. We have our beliefs and live our lives the best to those beliefs that we know how.
I admire Leslie for the strength and courage to put herself out there, knowing because of her relationship with Jesus, that she too will be ridiculed.
For what it is worth, I think she did the right thing to stand up for what she believed, and in my opinion, that was the right thing to do.
She didn't profess to be the perfect Christian or try to define Christianity. But she did profess where she stood in her beliefs as a Christain. She seemed to deal with an uncomfortable situation to the best of her ability. I think that is admirable.
I too have a relationship with Jesus Christ, and because of how that relationship effects my life, I would have made the same decision.


I thought it was exactly the right thing to do. You knew that some people were going to squeal like a stuck pig. But, so what? Way to go, Leslie!
