A MOPS International Leader 

Referral Letter

Lea Michelle Johnson was awesome and I think she’s a great resource to have for other Mops groups! She has several different topics that she speaks and this year we chose the topic “What moms are facing in the modern world!” She was very energetic and engaged our group of 40 moms. Her presentation was very interactive and had our moms moving at times! She’s very knowledgeable, reliable, very likeable, and from the feedback from the other moms they would like to have her return next year!

*Review of 33 Days



Lea has invested so much time into developing her ministry and helping others. She showed me so much patience, understanding and compassion towards the struggles I faced. She was open to hearing all my small steps of growth, as well as my hardships. The program covered so many topics that we all face and taught me Christ-centered ways of living. She shared lots of scripture and broke it down for me. Lea has the heart of Jesus and has been a blessing to me and my walk with the Lord .

*Review of -33 Days-


"I just completed Lea Michelle’s 33 day spiritual journey program! I reached out to her to assist me in ways to combat spiritual warfare in my life! Each morning, I received beautiful scriptures and useful inspiring tools to help me with my day! She is a bright light who is filled with faith and devotion to helping others and I highly recommend committing to her program! Over the course of the 33 days she became a friend, mentor and it has changed the way I go about my day . If you are looking for a spiritual life coach , she is definitely going to give you great suggestions on transforming your life through Christ! Highly recommended!"



Ann Lenears - 5 Star Review on Facebook 


"When I was seeking solid foundations in my faith, I reached out to Lea Michelle as a stranger seeking her opinion on some difficult questions. What I found was a friend who has been such a great support in my faith journey. Her heart is full of good intentions and love for the Lord. Her creative devotion to ministering outside the four walls is inspiring, and I am so grateful the Lord brought us together."

*Review of Fearless Noah

"Lea Michelle is a great person. She wrote the book Fearless Noah and it's adorable! Such a great story for kiddos ages 4-10 I think. It teaches great lessons for elementary school aged kids. My boys both love love love the book and the cool capes that came with! I can't wait to see what she has in store to write about next!"
