Lesley is an avid Chicago Cubs and Bears fan. She says "I still think I know how to play basketball. I still love music:.many genres. Music makes life better. I've had an obsession with Sly Stallone since the Rocky Balboa days:so much that I used to think drinking raw eggs would make me tough like him."
"I attend Crossroads Christian Church. My favorite day of the week is Sunday where we have our weekly family get together. More than anything, I love playing with my grandkids. I love coming home to visit. La Harpe will always be my home."
When asked about a most influential person, Lesley says "my entire family (Mom and Dad):but especially my Grandma Barbara Corzatt. She has had such a positive influence on all those who know her. I strive to be more like her. Her love for family speaks volumes. She is perfection."
"I thank my parents for teaching me unconditional love through life's ups and downs. I appreciate their hard work for providing for Kristin and me to have everything we needed."

Kristin's hobbies include attending kids sporting events and activities, spending time with family, and watching movies. She says "Our girls have always been very active with sports so I have not had a lot of free time. Most of my time is going to ballgames. I don't know what I will do when they will all be out of the house."
When asked about a most influential person, Kristin says "it's very hard for me to pick just one person because I have several. One, being my Grandma Barbara Corzatt. She has always been such a hardworking, humble, and supportive person. She has always gone out of her way to make sure everyone has what they need. She is a strong woman of faith and has always been there for our family. I hope to be like her someday."
"The other would be my parents, Todd and Carol Stevens. They taught me how to be independent and how to set goals. They have taught me values to live by, they have supported me and they encouraged me to pursue my dreams while challenging myself to be the best I can be. I wouldn't be the person I am today without their love and guidance."
