Kelley Latta grew up in church and almost missed knowing Jesus. After a radical encounter with His love at 26, she realized that many of her beliefs about Christianity didn’t match up with Jesus’ teachings. Compelled into the Word to discover truth for herself, she encountered Jesus through its pages and finally experienced the transforming power of grace. Now she equips others to live the promises of Scripture as a Bible teacher, author, sister, and mentor.
Burdened by watching Christians overcome by their current circumstances and locked in the pain of their past, Kelley set out to strengthen and disciple the body of Christ into wholeness. She launched Kelley Latta Ministries in 2011 to teach the Word of God and awaken authentic intimacy with Jesus Christ. Her blog, Kelley’s Word on Wednesday, connects readers to the heart of God, and guides them into aligning with Kingdom Truth so they can experience the divine power that flows through His promises.
In 2015, KLM launched its Love LIVES outreach as a practical means to love the broken into healing. Recognizing the significance of godly community to restoration, KLM also provides opportunities to strengthen and encourage people into living their divine identity through mentoring appointments, healing community groups, and Soul Care counseling sessions. Through the beauty of community, Kelley believes that we can grow into the best version of ourselves as we willingly pour into others and receive from their unique gifts.
Kelley’s books also lead readers to encounter Christ through the Scriptures. Tested by Fire, a four-week interactive Bible study, positions readers to discover their God-given purpose. Her 40-day devotional, Conversations with God, teaches readers how to reflect on God’s Word and respond to His voice. Her latest study, Ignite, journeys with Jesus through the seven ways He shed His blood so believers can fully operate in the power He poured out through His suffering.
Kelley joyfully shares her own faith adventure with her husband, Steve, in South Central PA. They love to laugh, to travel, and to share God’s blessings with each other and the people around them. They have two grown sons and a wonderful daughter-in-love, and they cherish the times when they can all be together. The rest of the time, they share their empty nest with their 8-year-old mini-Aussie, Jack, who keeps them laughing and the squirrels running.
