Nancy Sleeth

Meet Nancy Sleeth

After a spiritual and environmental conversion experience, Nancy Sleeth and her family radically altered their footprint, reducing their electricity use to one-tenth and their fossil fuel use to one-third the national averages. Along with her husband, Matthew, Nancy now travels throughout the U.S. speaking and writing about faith and the environment.

Prior to heeding this environmental calling, Sleeth served as communications director for a Fortune 500 company and as a high school and college educator and administrator. Sleeth is a graduate of Georgetown University and holds a masters degree in journalism. She is the author of Go Green, Save Green: A Simple guide to saving time, money, and God’s green earth, the first-ever practical guide for going green from a faith perspective, and Almost Amish: One Woman’s Quest for a Slower, Simpler, More Sustainable Life. Nancy and Matthew are the parents of Clark, who is married and in his fourth year of medical school, and Emma, a graduate of Asbury College who also works for Blessed Earth speaking to youth and college students about creation care. Nancy is the Program Director of Blessed Earth, a faith-based nonprofit focusing on environmental stewardship. In 2012, Nancy was named one of “50 Women to Watch” by Christianity Today.
