I am Disrupting Balance by breaking generational curses.

Leah M. Forney is as daughter, granddaughter, sister, friend, Pre-licensed Marriage & Family therapist are some of the hats that she wears. A native of Queens, New York who is currently residing in Maryland writing and speaking came naturally to her. Leah Forney is the oldest girl of six siblings. She grew up without her mother and father raising her.

She learned early on the importance of having a relationship with Jesus Christ from her maternal grandmother who raised her in the church. Leah’s love for writing came at a young age when she would pen poems to release the pain, she felt from not having her parents in her life. Never knowing where her writings would take her, Leah penned her first book.

As she continues to accept the calling that God has placed on her life, Leah is open to seeing where her gifts and talents will take her. She has released seven books over the last 4 years.
