Leah Tillema is a wife, mother, daughter and sister. Leah celebrates over 12 years of marriage and she and her husband have 3 beautiful children. Leah was born and raised in a small farm town in Iowa and currently resides in sunny California. Leah grew up in church but struggled as a teen with pride and rebellion. When she was 17, the mighty hand of God reached out and drew her back to Him. In 2001, as a high school student, Leah recommitted her life to Jesus and was baptized in the Holy Spirit.
Leah has always loved to sing and loves music but is not a master of any instrument nor is she trained in any vocal techniques. Her gift of songwriting and singing is supernatural. God gives Leah songs to encourage her, uplift her, and even change her heart or perspective in life circumstances. She receives the songs in dreams, in prayer, just strumming chords or simply walking down her hallway. As fast as her hand can write the songs come to her from Heaven.
Leah knows this is her ministry. The songs are for her personally but also for the body of Christ. Leah believes this is a healing ministry, not just worship, and will bring healing, freedom, repentance, joy, hope, deliverance, salvation and so much more. Her testimony of God’s greatness and faithfulness, in her own life, are intertwined throughout every song.
Leah has served on her local church praise and worship team as well as in small groups and in women’s ministries. Leah is also a part of Aglow International where she has the opportunity to lead worship and at times is invited to be a guest speaker within that organization. Leah also has a very strong heart for marriage and a desire to see marriages thrive. She herself has a powerful testimony regarding God’s faithfulness and commitment to His holy design. Although worshiping her Lord and Savior Jesus is her greatest passion, she loves to be at home with her husband and children. She has been a stay at home mom and housewife since the birth of her first child.
Leah desires to only encourage, exhort and lift up those around her. She is a woman of integrity and character, a woman of faith and courage. Her life verse is Mark 10:27, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God”. She currently is preparing to record her 2nd album! She will be the first to tell you, she is only giving back what God has given her and her prayer is that it all be to the glory of Jesus!
