Welcome to Leslie’s world!


My name is Leslie Goodwin and I am here to let you know that in starting life over–I am excited! After years of struggling with the demons of addiction, I found myself groping to catch up to where I desired and thought should be.

Through the amass of destroyed hopes and dreams, finally prevailing and blooming into a person who can appreciate the tiniest of accomplishments. In lies a renewed spirit. One of obedience, patience and hope.

Not only did I go back in order to go forward, but now realize that all past “mistakes” were purposeful.

My dreams of being a writer have finally come true with the first publication of my book titled, “Almost Hit.” And what do you know… I am a business owner. All possible due to never giving up on my gifts, dreams and myself.

Yes, it’s been a long road. Many a tear have been shed over my destructive plights. But now, ahh…the sweet release of joy I see on my mother’s face. The acquaintances still struggling, can sight a hope for their future through me. And although there is yet still more work to be done, I know that the groping phase is over.

“All things are possible” and “It’s never too late” are proven every time when reflecting on where I had taken my life and where it is today.

A special thanks to all that stuck by, scolded and encouraged. Much love for seeing in me, what I couldn’t (for a time) see in myself.
