About Uncharted Territory

In today’s society there are more marriages ending in divorce than there are decade-long celebrations of mutually satisfying relationships. It is not uncommon for couples to enter into marriage with a false sense of what marriage should be. Without the proper support, many couples may become frustrated and begin looking for a way out.

A marriage without challenges doesn’t exist, yet a marriage with God at the center can withstand the test of time. Uncharted Territory is a loving vivid portrait of how two individuals overcame the challenges of their youth, grew individually and spiritually, and made a conscious decision that “the back door was closed,” divorce was never an option. Married for close to 20 years, husband and wife team, Moses Smith and LaShunda Leslie-Smith openly discuss their trials and triumphs throughout their marriage journey, sharing the secrets of a successful marriage.

Vividly recalled, and candidly told, Uncharted Territory is a story that will transform, uplift, and inspire couples young and old alike.
