Meet the GSP Team!


Board of Directors


Leah Jacobson

Board Chair

Welcome!  I am a wife and a mother living in northern Minnesota.  I gain my insights and inspiration for this Project from many places; including (but not limited to) my previous work as a college campus minister, being a wife since 2003 and mother to five young children since then, the education I have gained as an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and mostly the women who have filled my life with friendship and sisterhood. God has used the many experiences of my young life to mold together a picture of what a Culture of Life could look like in our world. I am passionate about bringing that Culture into existence. More from Leah….
