Leah Everson is a Minnesota Girl through and through. The oldest of a family of five girls, Leah spent her childhood playing softball, practicing the piano, and falling in love with books. While at Bethel University, Leah felt God call her into vocational ministry and graduated with a BA in Biblical and Theological Studies in 2003. A year after getting married, Leah and Tim packed up to move to sunny Colorado where she earned her Master of Divinity (Denver Seminary, 2008).
The day after Leah’s schoolwork was finished, her son Jack was born. She spent the next year struggling to adapt to life as a mama and began her blog, The Toothless Grin, to share her story and come alongside other tired moms. In 2010, Leah was hired as a pastor at Scum of the Earth Church. There she co-founded the Scum Study Center, developing courses in bible, theology, and spiritual disciplines. After Ben was born in 2011, Leah began leading the Scum Moms Group.
Leah teaches God’s word with passion while she courageously shares her life with others. She connects with her audience through her compassion and empathy as she gently draws them into a loving relationship with Jesus.
p.s. A move back to Minnesota is in the near future for Leah, Tim, Jack, & Ben. Stay tuned for more!
