Leah has served congregations in several denominations, including the American Baptist Church, the Swedenborgian Church, and the Presbyterian Church, and has served as a preacher and worship officiant in diverse contexts. She owns her own editing and copywriting firm and enjoys working with a variety of clients to shepherd them through the fine-tuning of their writing projects.
Leah adores gardening, sewing and other handicrafts, reading, bluegrass music, singing, anything colorful," teaching, preaching, listening, and cooking. Rev. Goodwin and her husband, Kevin (also an ordained minister), have three children, Ephraim, Magdalen, and Zebulon.
