LINCOLNTON––You’re probably familiar with Lacey Leonhardt and her unique writing.
You know Leonhardt’s column, “Simply Southern,” which has run for some years here in our pages. Well, now, get set for another chapter from this lovely Lincolnton lady: “Teatime with Lace,” soon to début, only here in The Herald.
“The column has always been my little outlet and a place where I feel I can possibly help someone else,” she told us Tuesday. “I am hoping for the same with ‘Teatime’!”
Born in Lincoln County and raised in Vale, this talented writer is the daughter of David Leonhardt and April Brittain. She has two sisters: Maddie Leonhardt and Jada Hullette. Lacey Leonhardt attends the Elevation Church of Lake Norman.
She continued that she earned a bachelor’s degree in business studies at Johnson & Wales University of Charlotte. Currently, she’s a grad student at JWU, pursuing a master of business administration degree in organizational leadership.
So what inspired Leonhardt to create her new column?
“I love writing about my own life and experiences,” she said. “But I would love to hear from others. I hope to use my past experiences and knowledge to help someone else in our community.”
Her new endeavor will take the form of an advice column. Leonhardt hopes to address topics on religion/faith, family (“I am becoming a stepmother in 2022, so that’s a big area for me,” she revealed.), healing from past trauma, relationships, planning for the future, anxiety/depression, addiction and more.
Of writing, she added, “I love how it is somewhat of a therapeutic outlet for me. It also allows me to be creative, honest and my true self.”
