About Amber Lea

Life was meant for caring and sharing, and that's what I do best. My words are seldom polished or rehearsed, they come straight from the heart.

My first book, "Faith, Hope & Miracles" has been published and is now available on Amazon.com The faith that God has given me has changed my life. My goal as an author is share encouragement, faith & hope in God's great love. ("This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you". John 15:12) My son and I share a small log cabin in the mountains of Alaska with our 2 dogs and 3 cats. Our frequent visitors include moose, fox, bears, eagles and owls, and occasionally a human or two.

    • Thanks for the kind words Lewis! The blog is fairly new and I’m still learning my way around. But when I came across your post, it made a connection in my heart. I always share what God puts in my heart, and many times it comes from the words of others. I am sure God is using these to bless someone, including you and I. Have a great day and God bless! – Amber
