About Me

Hi, I’m Leanne Whitfield the founder of Abiding Providence Ministries. I am a wife, mother and passionate follower of Christ. I have a desire to see people grow in their relationship with God and fulfill His calling on their life.

My Content

My mission is to share a message that changes lives.

I write and speak on biblical truths, personal development, relationships and parenting. There are also going to be times I will throw in a random topic, just for fun!

My goal is to inspire, encourage and empower you to a closer relationship with God. If you want to be a follower of Christ who desires to fulfill your God- given calling- then Abiding Providence is for you.

I will typically post once a week, occasionally more. To make sure you don’t miss any of my posts you can subscribe via email. It’s quick and easy and you can unsubscribe at any time.

My Life

I have been married for over 20 years to my high school sweetheart, Glenn. We both love God and serve in ministry together. We have 4 children, twin boys who are 18 and twin girls who are 14, and yes, that does prove that God has a sense of humor! We home school our children and have done so for about the past 4 years. We live in a beautiful wine-growing region in Western Australia.

I am a borderline introvert/extrovert so while I love people and am especially energized by seeing God working in their lives, I also like my alone, quiet time to spend time with God and ponder the things of life.

I have a Diploma of Ministry and I think Bible College was one of the most fulfilling seasons in my life. I look forward to continuing my studies in the not to distant future.

I love to write and to study God’s word. I particularly enjoy writing bible studies and devotionals. I am in the process of having them published.  I am a creative person with many ideas but unfortunately I have not been blessed with the required computer skills to bring some of those ideas to life! God realized this and has given me a husband who oozes technical ability and is able to bring most of my ideas to life.

I love my garden I feel connected to God and inspired when I am in it.   I adore animals especially my two dogs and aviary of birds. I also like photography and although I admit to having limited natural photography gifts I claim to be a work in progress! However, most of my photos are of nature and it doesn’t require much skill to take a good photo when the subject is God’s handiwork!

Love Leanne

My Colophon

My site is built on WordPress (self hosted) and I use the ‘Get Noticed’ theme.

My blog was built using Michael Hyatt’s ‘Get Noticed’ theme and then developed and designed by my husband.

These family shots were taken by the beautiful staff of the Royal Caribbean Cruise Liners from a cruise we took a few years ago.

For blog hosting I recommend Bluehost.
