Welcome to the official site of

author Phyllis Keels.

The Gifted Writer, LLC

“Gifted for a purpose”


Author Phyllis Keels is a two-time award winner for her Christian fiction. She is a woman who is always wondering why she has too many irons in the fire.

In addition to being a writer, Phyllis is a speaker, an illustrator, Bible study teacher, and a woman after God’s own heart. Through her books, Bible studies, and blog, she brings the tender words of our Heavenly Father to those who are crushed in spirit.

Phyllis shares honestly about her own experiences with loss, specifically the loss of her daughter Julie, and how compassionately the Lord has comforted her. She gives the call to women who long for a deeper level of honesty and intimacy with our Lord Jesus Christ as they learn to cling to Him in life’s valleys.

Her passion is that others may also know that the Lord is faithful, and that Jesus is intimately aware of our suffering.

From the foundation that Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our faith, Phyllis uncovers the pictures of our Savior found throughout the Scriptures. Through her love of the written Word and a gift of humor, she shows others the truth about how much our Heavenly Father loves us.

A full-time author, speaker, and business owner of The Gifted Writer, LLC, Phyllis lives in Salisbury, North Carolina, with her good dog Emma.

Come join Phyllis and see how the Lord gives us a crown of beauty in exchange for our ashes of grief. (Isaiah 61:3 NIV)
