Leslie Alberta Sousa is the daughter of three-time published poet and poetry contest winner Alberta Miriam Isaacson. Born and raised in California, Leslie first discovered her own love for writing in high school when a teacher told her that her writing showed talent. Leslie desires to continue in her mother's legacy, not only in her love for writing but, more importantly, in her love for the Lord. Leslie was nine, when her mother was told Leslie was going blind, part of what inspired her mother’s poetry and also deepened her mother’s dependence on the Lord. After Leslie's mother passed away in 2013 at the Hospice House, Leslie found a fourth book of poetry her mother had written but had not yet published. Leslie soon found herself writing poems in answer to those of her mother's, including one about her mother’s treasured pink umbrella that had gone missing. The book she recently completed is a unique mother-daughter expression of love neverending, loss, and the hope we all can have in the Lord when we entrust all we have to Him.
Leslie has a tender heart for people and a strong desire to make a difference. She has been employed by the government for the past 33 years and currently serves as a Division Supervisor. Leslie graduated from the Federal Court Leadership Program (FCLP) in Washington, D.C. and serves as an online mentor for Focus on the Family and for the national conference of clerks as she enjoys encouraging and inspiring people in general. She is a certified “Real Colors” administrator but her passion is speaking about God’s life-changing power at women’s conferences and retreats. Leslie is the administrator of a Christian community page on Facebook called “A moment with Alberta” that she fills with inspirational posts, hope for the lost, and a daily reminder of the love God has for each and every one of us. Leslie attends Calvary Chapel where she volunteers as a greeter and has traveled to Israel. Leslie lives with her husband and has two grown sons who are her pride and joy. Her oldest son graduated from the University of Maryland and works in human resources. He recently celebrated his two-year wedding anniversary with his beautiful wife. Her youngest son works as a photojournalist.
