Luanne Nelson is a #1 Best Selling Author, motivational speaker, and an ordained minister. She understands the importance of nurturing body, soul and spirit – and lives a life packed with adventure. She’s often heard saying, “Only boring people get bored!”
Luanne shares stories of her trials and victories through the healing grace of God and encourages other men and women to share their stories, too. She was named one of the Most Interesting People in Milwaukee by Milwaukee Magazine.
Now in her manyeth decade of life, Luanne knows first-hand the trials, suffering and joys in life. She knows no one gets through it unscathed. She agrees with Hunter S. Thompson, “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”
Luanne’s most recent book “Tipping Tables” is a study in Redemption. The second half of the book is a collection of stories from several people who have had real encounters with JESUS, learning of His miraculous healing and amazing grace firsthand. An Amazon reviewer offered,
“Some of the stories are very moving, as well as being exceptionally well written. Good book for casual reading, or for deep and serious introspection. Highly recommended.”
Luanne’s writings have been published in several books including: “The Miracle Effect,” “The Breakthrough Effect,” and “The Identity Effect.” Her heartfelt musings are featured in “Comfort for the Grieving,” “Holy Whole and Fit,” and “A Few Words on Your Identity in Christ,” collections of devotionals published through FEW International Publications.
She was invited to add a chapter about “Aging Gracefully,” in the Amazon #1 New Release 2019 edition of “Natural & Organic Healing: Your Ultimate Guide to Health & Wellness.” Luanne earned her certification as a Health Coach through the Center for Obesity Education (COPE) at Villanova University several years ago.
Luanne studied English Literature at Westminster College in Pennsylvania, Journalism at Marquette University, and earned degrees in Biblical Studies from Midwest Bible College in Milwaukee, WI.
Luanne’s love for Jesus Christ and her enthusiasm for God’s Word are apparent in both her writings and her Spirit-led street ministries. You can find Luanne, usually with her husband David, preaching and teaching in groups both large and small – all for the Glory of JESUS, their Lord and Savior.
Luanne and David share the spirit of adventure in experiencing God’s beautiful creation. They lived in Alaska for a few years and love running away to other faraway places, too. Some of their favorite spots are in British Columbia and St. Petersburg, Russia. They’re convinced, however, there is no place like home. After all, Milwaukee has the best cream puffs in the world.
