Sifted Wheat was created to bring conversation about relationships and real life situations. It is not a platform to be seen or to seek influence, but a safe place to learn. There is a lot of information available to us, a lot of opinions, but with Leslie’s combined experience of ministry and mental health, it’s designed to be a place to learn and to grow and to discover that we can heal. As humans we can go through a lot, and here we can explore what we need to hold us together, where we ca ...

We are moving deeper into the relationships of our lives, and how to love one another in order and safely, with a conversation about friends. Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” We hear this a lot, but are we really considering what it means? Or if we are, do we think that somehow our relationships could be …

This is an episode that stepped all over my toes... but don't let that scare you away because even in creating the content, I experienced encouragement and empowerment to make changes in my marriage! I take the time evaluate why Ephesians 5 feels threatening and the revelation the LORD gave me to help me distinguish His plan for love in my marriage…

Are you struggling with setting boundaries with your parents? Do you need support to assess the relationship and give yourself permission to say "no" or create space? Or on the other side, do you struggle with not involving your parents in your lives, having them take responsibility for your kids or your emotions when that is no longer their role? …

We’ve all heard the statement “The church is a hospital” but if we are honest, we are looking less like a hospital where people can come and find healing and leave better, and have become more like a hospice where we choose to remain comfortable until we die. If those feel like harsh words, maybe it is because they fatefully ring true. This episode…

Disordered "love" opens us up to harm. If we aren't careful we can elevate our love for others, making what God created the SOURCE of our love instead of Him being the source through which we love others. This often happens through the magnification of others meeting our needs, allowing them to be "god-like." This opens us up to get hurt and for us…

We are continuing to open up about the order of “love” with “Love Yourself” in part 2 of the Out of Order Series. Hopefully, you are learning what “love” is so that you can operate in it more fully and more safely.

We open a new series about the order of love and how we often get it out of order with the first episode and the first order: Love the LORD, your God. Do you ever wonder what love is? Do you wonder what God's love means and how it sets us up to have healthier relationships? This episode explores why this is the first and foremost commandment and ho…

This episode is opening the door to my own sifting season that is presently being experienced. Sometimes what is happening in our lives doesn't reflect God's promises, and if we aren't careful, we might even think that it doesn't reflect His goodness. I want to take some time and talk through 4 things that I have committed to doing which has helped…

What do Lidl, Auchan, Sephora and Flink have in common? They’re all customers of RELEX Solutions, one of Finland’s four private tech companies. RELEX makes supply-chain and retail-planning software — which might sound boring, but it's extremely important when you consider how much inventory, especially food, is wasted due to poor planning. Sifted s…

As head of venture and growth at HSBC Innovation Banking, where she works with thousands of VCs, startups and scaleups in the UK and Nordics, she has a view on who’s done an undisclosed down round, who’s been trimming headcount and who’s set up a “hunting line” for future acquisitions. And she also knows…

Let’s take a look deeper into the story of God through the parable of the prodigal son and the lost sheep.

This conversation is the second in a series that highlightsGod’s love for his kids and moves through the parable of “The Prodigal Son” from the younger brother to the older brother.

This conversation is about God’s “reckless love.” I realize that can be a controversial statement, but I’m not talking about the character of God, rather, His love for us. In life experiences and in the Word of God, over and over there is this expression of love where God shows up in spaces the “respectable” wouldn’t find themselves, yet, God is th…

Today’s conversation is about the fear of rejection and thepattern of comparison. It’s a problem that affects us all, and the answer is “love.” Fear informs comparison, but love informs belonging, something that all of us need, and all of us seek – to be loved and to be known. There is only One Who can perfectly meet that need and is our Perfect Pa…

The art of deception mostly lies in the fact that it is hidden. We don't always know if we are seeing clearly or if we have been enticed into a strategy to "dup" us. I've been there, and this episode is about where it all started (yep, Genesis 3 again) and how we can break off the charm (because it takes vulnerability and courage, but it can be don…

In this episode I share the analogy of noise cancelling ear phones and how we can sometimes limit wisdom and counsel when we only listen to what we want to hear and also might miss warnings that we need to hear to help us navigate life better!
