Welcome to the official site of Phyllis Keels, The Gifted Writer, LLC!

Phyllis and Emma

Author Phyllis Keels (a three-time Indie Book Awards winner for her Christian fiction) 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, the illustrator of an Amazon Bestseller written by Kimberly Rae, a Bible study teacher, and a woman after God’s own heart. Through her books, classes, 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 adult daughter Julie in 2011, and how compassionately the Lord has comforted her. She gives the call to women who long for a deeper level of honesty in their relationship with the 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. She helps others allow the Holy Spirit to carry them by the peace that comes from receiving Jesus’ love for us.

On 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 beauty of the real story our Heavenly Father has written for us.

Author, speaker, and business owner of The Gifted Writer, LLC, Phyllis lives in Salisbury, North Carolina with her faithful yellow Lab named 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)
