Pointers on the Pursuit of Purpose: Dream in Soul Magazine Interview with Life Coach Leslie Denman



Here’s an inspiring interview I did at my magazine for young adults DreaminSoul.com – I love what my friend Leslie Denman, a life coach, author and mentor, shares about discovering your purpose…

Society sometimes sets aside “teenhood” and the early twenties as those fun, carefree years – but what better opportunity to discover who you are and explore what you were made for when you don’t yet have all of the responsibilities that come later in life. Everyone has purpose and we as young people can serve God right where we are, impacting our friends, using our gifts and serving others in our corner of the world…

Leslie Denman is passionate about young people and helping them to find and pursue their purpose while they are young. She is a certified Life Purpose and Teen Empowerment Coach (in other words when it comes to purpose, she knows her stuff;) and the founder of the organization Girls Living Life On Purpose, Inc. based in Dallas, TX. In this Interview Coach Leslie gives pointers on pursuing God and purpose boldly right where you are…

Dream in Soul: Hi, can you tell us a little about you and what do you do?

Coach Leslie Denman: I am a believer passionate about empowering people for purpose. As a Christian Life Coach, I am a Missionary of Hope to the countless women and girls that God assigns to me. I partner with the Holy Spirit to bring about transformation to the lives of people through coaching, speaking and training. I have a wonderful husband of fourteen years and two beautiful daughters and my most recent accomplishment that brings me so much joy is answering the call to ministry as a licensed minister.

DS: What inspired you to work with teens, especially young women? What were your own teen years like and how did you get grounded in God into your own purpose?

Leslie Denman: My inspiration to work with teen girls and young women started with my own search for significance and purpose. The last thing I thought my calling was – was to work with teens especially girls. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 29 and I asked God to reveal His purpose for my life. I declared to God that if He spared my life and revealed my purpose, I would spend the rest of my life fulfilling that purpose. I am happy to say that I am still here.

This journey has been remarkable. Looking back over my life and growing up in Omaha, TX, I remember standing in the mirror of my room hearing this small voice telling me that I was going to be great. I had no idea what I would be doing or how it was going to happen but I believed that voice. I carefully and secretly tucked that belief away in my heart. I had great parents and our life was pretty normal that is until I found myself pregnant at the tender age of fourteen and even then, I felt God’s hands of grace and mercy upon me. My parents made sure we were active in church and grew up hearing the word of God. God used that experience in my life to draw me closer to Him.

I remember going to church and watching people sing, shout and praise God and I would think “What is that all about.” I was a young girl with a heavy burden and I wanted to feel what those people were feeling. I wanted to be free. I would ask God in my own lil’ way to help me know Him like that. Soon I would find myself angry and frustrated for many years to come. At the time I did not know that God was answering my prayer.

DS: What is the first thing you would say to someone about pursuing their purpose? How does s/he discern what it is and move forward to pursuing it?

Leslie Denman: Great question. The first thing I would say is “WHY? Why are you pursuing your purpose?” May seem like a simple question, even strange to some but it is the answering of this question, you hear the heart and motive of the individual. Luke 6:45 says “for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” Discovering your purpose is just the tip of the iceberg. Walking it out is like an award-winning drama complete with plots, schemes and twists. An individual clear about their WHY will not only discover their purpose but they will walk it out in a spirit of excellence. Discerning one’s purpose can be both exciting and yet frustrating. It’s exciting in that you will discover that you are gifted and passionate about so many things; frustrating in that you don’t know what to pursue…

Be Free to Be Yourself

julenebefreeblog

I used to be afraid to be myself, but am learning that trying to be “normal” to fit in is pretty time-consuming & boring…💁🏽

It really is the ones who are misfits who are crazy enough to believe they can change the world that will! Embrace your freedom – you were created in Love💖 to dream and to be different, unique, creative, yourself – so be free and be YOU! 😘 Shine your light cause the world is a whole lot brighter🔥 with you in it, living on #Purpose…🎆 (P.S. if you can’t tell I love all things Disney, Minnie is my home girl;)

Inspiration from Walt Disney On Reviving Hope and Reclaiming Your Imagination and STORY

The promo video for STORY in Chicago (for more on the event visit storygathering.com) caught my attention and was like God drawing me in to see what He’s been speaking to my heart over the past few years, about reigniting our creativity to dream like children again:

What if we can reclaim the places where imagination has been lost and find the whisper that beckons us to look past the ordinary…what would we discover?

This is your Invitation to Another World…

“That’s what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination and instill hope again, and again, and again.” – Walt Disney
These words from STORY are a call for creatives to step into their calling:

“While all is chaos and grief and anger and confusion – we are called to instill hope again…We each need to be reminded of the power we have as storytellers.

“You’ve heard, “look for the helpers,” which is part of a quote from childhood icon Fred Rogers about where to find inspiration following a crisis. I say, look for the storytellers. You and I have a tremendous opportunity to re-write the narratives society plays out day after day.
Because you can tell a story well, you have influence. More than you know…” – via the STORY blog

“My Last Day Without You” A Love Movie to Love and Filmmaking Inspiration

mylastdaywithoutyoumovie


I happened to come across this movie on Netflix and it’s the cutest thing ever – a breath of fresh air and so sweet. It stars Nicole Beharie (from Sleepy Hollow) and Ken Duken (whose not hard on the eyes;), and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for something uplifting, has elements of faith, romance and a story you can both laugh about and feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The music is also amazing – Nicole can sang…Here’s a little story behind the movie from the filmmakers – I’m a screenwriter and love hearing how creatives bring their art to life:

You’re Made to Dream Uniquely Ever Since the Beginning…

We create & dream because our Father dreams – you are Love’s dream, part of His great story…When we create we are reflecting the Creator and who He uniquely, beautifully created us to be since the beginning…


bewhoyouarequotejulenecollage

Dare to be and dream differently – express who God created you to be through everything you do! He made you fearfully and wonderfully in Love💖, with ideas, quirks and a combination of talents no one else has! You weren’t made to be “normal,” for comparison or to fit in – it’s embracing your uniqueness and daring to break out of the box and break some rules that makes you stand out.

You are a gift💝 but you weren’t made to be boxed it🎁 – color outside the lines to pioneer a new path that no one has seen…People like Walt Disney🐭 and Oprah Winfrey🎬 inspire me (I might have been their wild child😜) because they paved new paths, defined their own success and innovated unique dreams that did not exist before and didn’t wait for anyone’s validation.

For the longest time I felt pressured to do what others expected me to or to fit a mold so others can like me but that’s no way to live! Dare to be you to the full and live your dreams differently the way God gives it to you, not how society says you have to – we don’t have to conform to that pattern but we’re made to bring a whole new way of living to Earth.

Sometimes your “weakness,” flaws and the things you don’t know can become your greatest strengths! Embrace your weird and be quirky, silly😼, funny, creative and most of all you because no one else can be beautifully YOU and live your dreams like only you can👈🏽, how He intended you to since the beginning…
