Leah Pullin Bio

Leah was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer when she was 34 years old.  A very poor prognosis left Leah and her husband Lee, learning to trust God in whatever His plan would be. At the time, their children were 3 years old and 9 months old.  At best, the statistics showed a “10% chance of being alive in 5 years”.  But, God isn’t defined by statistics.  God’s power was unleashed in Leah’s life because of His mercy in answering the prayers of people all around the world.  Early in her diagnosis, God pressed upon Leah that “this is not about you”.  Now, fifteen years later, Leah has remained cancer free.  Lee and Leah’s oldest child is a college freshman and their youngest is 16 years old. 

Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”  Leah and all those that prayed and pleaded with God for healing, asked for and could imagine Leah seeing her daughter’s first steps, her children’s first days of kindergarten, their first dates, their first cars, and the last days of high school.  But the verse says “to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” …. nobody could have imagined the ways that God has taken the story of cancer cells in Leah’s body to reach people around the world with His love.  From the United States to Bangladesh to Pakistan; throughout India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, God has used the story of what He did in Leah’s body and life to open doors to the Gospel that were previously closed.

Leah, Lee, and their daughter live in Katy and attend Kingsland Baptist Church.  Hudson is a freshman at Texas A&M in College Station.

“I do not want to watch God work from a distance.  Neither do I want to hear the amazing stories of God’s activity in the world as if they are fables made for other people in an ancient time.  I want to live the kind of life that cannot be lived without the fullness of Christ in my life.”  Erwin McManus
