Successful book launch event for ‘Unjustified Joy’

Successful book launch event for ‘Unjustified Joy’

Author Leah Jeffery shared her inspiring story through chronic illness at her book launch event in Exeter on Saturday.

This weekend friends, family and readers gathered at Rediscover Church to celebrate Leah Jeffery’s book ‘Unjustified Joy’. Leah shared about her powerful journey through chronic illness and encouraged those attending to hold on to hope throughout their own storms. 

Guests were treated to delicious refreshments, engaging activities, and inspiring conversation.

The event was also an opportunity to raise funds for The National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society (NASS).  Their work greatly impacted Leah through her diagnosis and treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis and her hope is that by supporting their work, they’ll be able to help more suffers of AS.

Leah commented, “The book launch was such a great opportunity to share more about the heart behind the book, promote a fabulous charity (National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society) and most importantly thank God for his faithfulness in my life. Having friends and family there made it a real time of celebration!”

Congratulations to Leah Jeffery for such a successful event, and thank you for everyone who came along!

When a mysterious condition causing increasing pain and decreased mobility began to affect Leah, doctors were puzzled as all test results came back negative.  After months of struggle, Leah was finally diagnosed with an aggressive form of the chronic disease Ankylosing Spondylitis. 

Unjustified Joy is the story of Leah’s inspiring journey through chronic illness, and how she stayed firm in her faith throughout every hospital visit, test and treatment.
