The Perfect Blindside:

He’s an egotistical snowboarder with a silver medal. She’s a judgemental honours student with a flair for photography.

Slashed tires…. False accusations…. A coded message…. When all they can see is each other’s flaws, how can Jake and Sophie work together to figure out what’s really been happening at the abandoned silver mine?

Follow Sophie and Jake into secret tunnels as they unravel the mystery and challenge each other to become who God wants them to be.

In this episode, Leslie shares her journey toward becoming an author of books for teens as she was very frustrated with the things her growing children were exposed to through movies, television, music, and even literature. The societal messages that bombarded them didn’t always coincide with her faith. Then one day the story of Jake and Sophie literally popped into her mind and The Perfect Blindside happened. Leslie also talks about her future projects and more.
