One year ago today,
our world lost one of God’s saints,
we lost a gifted author of faith,
and we lost a friend.
We lost Leisha Kelly.
Not only did we lose Leisha,
but we lost her son, Justice as well.
Leisha and I
served together for several
years as co-coordinators of our
local homeschool group,
and in that time, she became
a special friend.
She was a woman with
a sweet & quiet spirit who
humbly blessed those around her.
Her son Justice, had an equally
sweet & gentle spirit
and was a Godly teen who
was a pleasure to know –
even though he was often so
quiet it was hard to know
he was in my class.
Leisha was so humble that I
knew her for a year before
I even discovered that she
was a successful author of
many books – she just never let on about it.
I saw her latest book in a Christian bookstore,
and commented to her
how strange it was that an
author had the same unusual name
she did! She cracked the
smallest little smile, before
a gal standing next to us informed
me that SHE was that author.
Talk about feeling stupid!
If you’ve never read one
of Leisha’s books, you are
missing out on a real blessing.
She had the gift of weaving the
love of God and the truths in the Bible,
with stories that were heartwarming
and characters you came to love.
The kids in our group received a
unique opportunity to have Leisha
teach several literature classes
about her books and were
the richer for it.
Not only did she teach about her books,
she taught about the time periods,
dressed in period costume,
brought in special foods
and just gave them such an
If you’ve never read her books,
please make it your goal to do so.
Please don’t buy it used –
bless her husband and daughter
by purchasing a new copy.
Her books are available HERE
and are extremely reasonably priced.
Leisha left us a legacy of faith
in literature that I pray will bless
many until we meet in eternity.
I hope you’ll get to know
that legacy through her works.
In loving memory of Justice & Leisha,
