Nov/Dec 2015 Leslie’s Lane: Seasonal Jobs, NYC for Holidays, My Conference Calls with Oprah & President Obama and More!‏


Hi Beautiful Family and Friends!Emoji

How are you?  I trust that you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  If you don’t mind, I would like to combine the November and December Leslie’s Lane post!  I trust that you find it helpful, educational, inspirational and all those great things!  Please feel free to share!  Thanks so much!  Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy the rest of your holidays!


Leslie E. Royal


During the holidays, we reflect on all that we are thankful for, the Birth of Jesus Christ and how much we love and appreciate those most close to us!  I am thankful that God created me in His own image, just to glorify Him!  It is my prayer that I do so in all that I say and all that I do!  Having said that, I would like to share a little about the conference call that I was invited to be on with Oprah Winfrey. (Please check out the photo above.)  This is what I shared several weeks ago: 

I’m At Home! On Phone with ‪#‎Oprah – @Oprah Conference Call. See ‪#‎BELIEF Series! @LesliesLane – Wow! I was honored to have been invited to be on a Conference Call with Oprah Winfrey! I am on that Conference Call right this minute! We started at 7:00 p.m. EST! She is answering questions now on her beliefs, what God feels like and more. They asked that we go to the link attached and share our BELIEF in three words. Mine is simple: Father, Son Spirit. Please go to the site to find out more about her new series. She is a woman of great faith! I will be writing more about the inspiring conference call in October Leslie’s Lane in a few days!

Okay…… so I’m a few months late! But here goes: Oprah began by thanking faith leaders from around the world for being a part  of the conference call.  She shared that she never wanted belief to be just another television show.  It should be one that uplifts people in their own faith or beliefs.  She feels that her calling is to share ideas through storytelling.  As such, as the stories unfolded, it has been amazing and wondrous for her to see the impact on Belief.  Finally, this is what Oprah shared, “BELIEF will have its own life and place in the world.  I had the desire to tell a story that would be felt in the hear of people.  Stories of faith makes us all unique.  I am ultimately hoping the audience sees a little piece of their lives in BELIEF.”  Please go to:
