The Intro

Hi there!

Welcome to ReallyLeah. And, yes, my name is Leah. This site is a place where passion, productivity, and purpose harmonize. I could tell you more but you’d probably rather discover it for yourself. I hope you enjoy your visits. 😉 I’m glad you stopped by.

PASSION. Once upon a time, I dreamt of becoming a motivational speaker and training facilitator at the helm of a global organizing empire. But life had other plans. After several sickening years, I began writing children’s stories and personal essays on healing and faith. My heart still breaks for caregiving families which is why I co-lead a small group for family caregivers. Besides business and writing, I enjoy everything that makes life better because I almost gave up on life. The pain of sickness and disease felt too hard to come back from… But God, and good people, helped me, and now I want to help others fall in love with living a blessed life! I give away FREE resources every week.

PRODUCTIVITY. Lately, I get my thrills from writing character-driven fiction. I am playing with short (love-ish) stories, right now, and trying to find the time and energy to publish the three contemporary novels I have written.

Academically, I earned my BSBA in Finance and Real Estate, and an MFA in Creative Writing. In 2020, I entered my first writing contest and won the first place prize in Short Non-Fiction at the Florida Christian Writers Conference. In 2021, I won a place in the Word Weaver’s summer online anthology for a different story.

Besides writing, I am also tapping into my award-winning (LOL!, there’s a story) artistic past and designing custom coasters. You can read the story here. And, because I have struggled with anxiety, I plan my best moments and take adequate time to rest.

PURPOSE. The unburdened gift of life is understanding that my existence is to glorify God.

Finishing well (and WINNING) requires awareness. REPOSTED WITH EDITS: After meeting with fellow authors this past Monday, I recalled that we all had “finishing” on our minds. Finishing what? Finishing this quarter’s goals: books, novels, submissions for competitions, next-level revisions, blogging, posting, or, in general—whatever project that needs to get done.  The topic of finishing…
