This Jackie Lewis tribute and photo montage were put together by Life Leadership. The obituary follows.
This week, the earth lost an incredible heroine. The youngest of the eight founding couples of Life Leadership, Jackie Lewis was the poster child of personal growth in Christ. She was filled with hopes and dreams of making a difference in this world.
And she did!
A woman who cherished her husband and four precious young children, she was a leader of thousands of wives and mothers. Her fingerprints have been left on anyone within earshot of her voice, and the effects of her life will be felt for eternity. She led not only through her messages from stage, but more importantly from the example that she set.
Jackie would be the first to tell you that she was not perfect, but she had full faith in a Savior who IS, and because she trusted Him, she now resides with Him forever.
Jackie’s testimony shared recently at a Life Leadership Convention Sunday morning told of her background of which she was not proud and her transformation into being a happily married mother of four, striving for excellence in every area, and leading others to leave their own pasts behind.
She brought smiles during talks from stage about the “grape lady”, “suck it up cupcake!” and the escalator fall. She egged us on with her passion after reading “The New Tolerance,” or telling us that the world is begging us to, “Lead …with strong arms!”. She reminded us that, “Your life is not over, but your past is.” AND “What we do in LIFE echos into eternity.” She told us not to lose hope, because when the sun goes down the stars come out.
Jackie’s chief goal was to bring glory to God, and her recent text to Laurie Woodward probably summed it up best, “I can’t stand not getting better at anything!”
Jackie recently quoted Mae West, “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
Jackie Lewis only lived once, and thanks be to God, because of her, thousands – if not millions – will know how to live right.
