Rev. Paul Andrew Leonard
(call him Andy)
It is so wonderful to see the beauty of the couple's love as they say their vows to each other and place the rings on each others fingers. As the tears of joy roll down their cheeks I am so touched by the honor I feel for their allowing me to be with them in this intimate moment. A heartfelt joy.

Upon his return he worked in a family business in Jackson and later received a BSBA from Southeast Mo University. After leaving the family business he earned a M.A in psychological counseling from Southeast Mo U and opened his practice in hypnotherapy ... The Center for Self Improvement.
