A precious mother, grandmother, friend,teacher, but foremostly a steadfast and fearless servant of God, Leah Jean Lambert was taken home to be with Jesus Christ, her beloved Savior and the Lord of her life, on Sunday, October 23, 2016.
To her children and grandchildren, Leah was one of the most fearless and passionate of women. Never daunted by adversity, her courage and passion provided her with dynamic and rich experiences. Leah was an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a health practitioner, a lecturer, an evangelist, a caregiver, and student, to name a few of her accomplishments. She was a tireless advocate for preventive medicine, and her research and studies in the field of medicine, spanning four decades, was years ahead of comtemporary medical paradigms and practices. She truly was a pioneer in the field of medicine.
Leah was defined by her passion and courage, but she was also defined by commitment to following Christ. In every circumstance, whether favorable or ill, Leah held on to the hope of the Gospel message, that Christ loved her and died on a cross to take on her sins. She lived each day knowing that she was saved by the grace of God through faith in Christ, and that her salvation was a gift (Esphesians 2:8), For Leah, there was no greater joy than to be in a love relationship with Jesus. Wherever she was and with whomever she met, Leah would faithfully share the good news of salvation in Christ. All aspects of her life were rooted in Him, and she was constantly seeking to grow in her relationship with him. Reading God's word and communicating with him in prayer were vital to her health as a Christian. Her desire was (that Christ would be glorified through her) that others would experience the beauty and transformative power of God's love as she had...her faith in God was her legacy.
Leah was survived by her four children, David, Melanie, Elizabeth, and Rebecca, and her five grandchildren, Brittany, Kelsie, Ashley, Austin, and Gracelyn, each of whom was invariably impacted by her life of courage, passion, love, and faithfulness. Her love as a mother and grandmother was modeled after the selfless and enduring love of Christ. She counted others as more significant than herself (Philippians 2:3) and unconditionally cared for the needs of her children and grandchildren, mending their wounds and encouraging them with the Word of God through every trail. The loss of Leah Jean Lambert left a hole in the heart of her loved ones that will never be filled...until we see her again. Mom, Mimi, we love you.
