Hi, I’m Lesley.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  I live in Scotland and work as a youth worker.  In my spare time I love music- I originally trained as a musician and still enjoy playing with various bands and orchestras.  I also enjoy reading, writing, going to the theatre (especially musicals), walking in the country or by the sea and spending time with friends.

I’ve been blogging here since August 2015 and I’m enjoying the journey so far.

Life in the Spacious Place refers to a verse in the Bible- Psalm 18:19: He led me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delights in me-  and this blog is about exploring this spacious place and sharing what God is teaching me.

I write on various topics connected with God and faith.  I love to explore questions of faith, dig deeper into the Bible, share book reviews and, above all, encourage people that, whatever their circumstances, there is always hope to be found in God.

Since the beginning of 2018, I have been a regular contributor at Gracefully Truthful.  Click here to find my posts that have been featured there as well as occasional guest posts at other sites.

Thanks for joining me and I look forward to exploring the spacious place together!

  1. Hi Leslie! I’m your friend from the #gritup collective writers link. I’m an author of two books. One is a Bible study and the other a book about the humanity of the Marys in the Bible– A Mary Like Me: Flawed Yet Called published by Leafwood in 2016. It’s written to encourage women to step out into their call from God. Would you consider reviewing it?

  2. Hi Lesley,
    I am friends with Anna Smit, and we are working together on some writing projects. I loved the music that you created for her poem “Each Beat of Flowing Truth.” (She shared it with me, as we have been writing poetry together for one of the projects.) I just finally found your blog today, and I am so glad! Blessings to you!
