More About Leslie Parrott
Les and Leslie. A husband-and-wife team who not only share the same name, but the same passion for helping others build healthy relationships. In 1991, the Parrotts founded the Center for Relationship Development on the campus of Seattle Pacific University – a groundbreaking program dedicated to teaching the basics of good relationships.
Married in 1984, the Parrotts bring real-life examples to their speaking platform. Their professional training – Leslie as a marriage and family therapist, and Les as a clinical psychologist – ensures a presentation that is grounded, insightful and cutting-edge.
Each year Les and Leslie speak in over 40 cities. Their audiences include a wide array of venues, from churches to Fortune 500 company board rooms. The Governor of Oklahoma appointed the Parrotts as the first ever statewide Marriage Ambassadors. Authorities have called upon Les and Leslie to provide on-site support in the aftermath of worldwide disasters such as Ground Zero and Chernobyl. The Commander of the 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, invited them to assist his soldiers with re-entry into family life upon returning from Iraq.
Part of Les and Leslie’s vision for building stronger, life-long marriages is to equip a band of more than a million marriage mentors who walk alongside less experienced couples. Research reveals that marriage mentoring is one of the best things we can do to cut the divorce rate and improve marriages – whether couples are engaged, newly married or married of decades.
The Parrotts have been featured in USA Today and the New York Times. Their television appearances include CNN, The View, The O’Reilly Factor, The Today Show and Oprah.
As #1 New York Times best-selling authors, their books have sold over two million copies in more than two dozen languages, and include best-selling and Gold-medallion winner Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts. Other popular titles include Real Relationships, L.O.V.E., The Parent You Want To Be, Trading Places, The Complete Guide To Marriage Mentoring and Love Talk.
Leslie Parrott currently resides in Seattl, in the state of Arizona. Leslie Parrott was born in 1922.

You do make a difference Feb 10, 2007
In an easy to read manner, the author guides the reader through a dicussion of how life's challenges and "pieces" help us to grow in our walk in Christ, if we allow this process to take place. I particularly loved how she shared her life's big heartbreak and how she SLOWLY was able to come to grips with how God could use it in her life if she let Him. I found the book difficult to put down and enjoy the Band of Sisters I now have in my life!
A marvelous and inspiring book! Jun 28, 2006
In this delightful book, Leslie Parrott writes about the power of a woman's life and the ways in which a woman can make a difference in the world. So often, women feel that to find purpose in their lives, it's necessary to make major changes or to do something different. Leslie points out that as Christians, we are called to love God and others...that we are already making a difference through our loving acts and words and that we can make an even bigger difference by growing in our ability to love others.
My favorite books are those that are both ennobling AND enabling. Just like Dr. Parrott's earlier books with her husband, You Matter More Than You Think is one of those books. The poetry and personal experiences that she shares will inspire you to want to be a difference maker. And, the practical tips she provides will give you ideas for translating your dreams into reality. Many of the tips are familiar (e.g., allow painful personal experiences to sensitize you to others' wounds, use the observations of discerning friends to help better understand the difference you can make, and grow in graciousness by cultivating a heart of gratitude). But, the way in which Dr. Parrott puts it all together and shares her personal journey will inspire you to apply these truths in new ways. I highly recommend the book!
