StandTAL Retreat Testimonials


“I left the retreat feeling a sense of relief in my life. I can BREATH…and take one day at a time. My God is in control.



How do I begin to explain the affect this retreat had on me? At the age of 65, I decided to do something completely out of my comfort zone and attend this retreat. I didn’t know what to expect really, but I knew that I loved and trusted the other ladies who were attending. I didn’t feel judged – only accepted, and I knew that it would be the same on this trip.
I have seen the passion that Lesley exudes when she takes things on, and I knew that she had a passion for building women up. I have experienced first -hand her generosity and welcoming arms, and it was the same for all of us on the retreat.
To really be able to open yourself up to discuss your hurts, your successes, and the strife that you might be experiencing in your life is a gift. This retreat, for me, was all of that and more. There was a camaraderie amongst us that was unexpected and so exciting. There were several women on the trip who I had not met that I now feel a wonderful connection to. My life is forever enriched, and I feel a great sense of calm, love, and contentment after spending this time with such amazing and giving women.
I also feel fortunate to have met Gail and have the privilege of her experience as a minister and her strength in guiding people in their day-to-day struggles.
In closing, I want to thank you, Lesley, for allowing me into the fold and for all your hard work to ensure that we had the experience that we had. It was truly unforgettable.”
Love, Trish

“A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the 1st Balance to Bloom retreat, and if I’m being honest, I did not know what to expect. A bunch of women at a resort is not necessarily my idea of fun. I get the whole waiting to exhale, girls trip thing, but that has never really been my vibe. I arrived with no expectations and the prayer “Your will be done Lord”. What started as my personal prayer to The Lord to get my mind right transformed into PRAISE AND WORSHIP as I began to see the way Jesus was weaving everything together. During the first session, it was as I could actually see The Holy Spirit pulling individual pieces from each of us to make our beautifully tapestry. That in and of itself was amazingly beautiful and humbling and would have made the trip worth it. !!BUT GOD!! It did not stop there! That energy, that movement spanned the entire weekend and I was able to feel and see not just my own junk be removed, but the deliverance of others as well. I feel each person there was strategically place by God. All of this to say, in the end I was THANKFUL to be apart and to be able to witness the Revelations of God!
Looking forward to the next time we are able to reset to Balance2Bloom!

Always A Good Time

Founder of StandTAL

About Lesley

Before uncovering my passion for life and health coaching, I dedicated fifteen years to the corporate world. Although I cherished my career and acquired valuable expertise, I chose to focus on raising my five children, finding great joy in it. Juggling roles as a wife, mother, and entrepreneur, I found my true calling in supporting others on their life and health journeys.

This epiphany led me to become a Certified Health and Life Coach.

With a background in Child Psychology from the University of California, San Diego, and diverse personal experiences and training, I provide a wealth of knowledge on the dynamics of life and health challenges.

I find it rewarding volunteering and contributing to my community. My hobbies involve water activities, camping, boating, reading, bowling, playing games, and making cherished memories with my family.

Blooming & Growing together🦋
