Leah Beard

“My job allows me to love and pour into the family that God has given me.”

Leah and her husband, Luke, felt God’s calling to be houseparents but had no more information than that. As they started researching they came across Cookson Hills and immediately knew this was where they needed to be. Leah and Luke joined our team in November of 2020 as a houseparent. “As simple as it sounds, I get to be a mom, and I love that. I love developing relationships with the students in and out of my home, teaching them, crying with them, laughing with them, cooking, doing homework, sharing Jesus, and living life together.” Leah also uses her organization and planning skills to help as Events Coordinator. 

If you’re on campus and have a craving for something sweet, chances are Leah and her crew has just whipped something up! But in the event there are no sweets, it’s probably because she was reading, crafting up something wonderful, spending time with her husband and their son, Lincoln, camping, or hiking!
