Don’t let the name fool you. She’s a girl. She just didn’t know how to spell her new name (the girl way) twenty-five years ago when God gave her this one. Like many biblical characters, God changed Andy’s (Andrea’s) name at a critical time in her life when she chose Jesus for a second and final time. It had been a lonely year without Him. Andy plunged into the waters of baptism and came out rubbing her hands together. She was ready to move forward with her calling and her faith never again to look back or deny her Savior.
Andy Lee has a bachelor of science in English and secondary education from Oklahoma State University. She also has a ministerial certificate degree from Eastern Nazarene University.
She has taught Bible studies for over twenty years. Her greatest passion is teaching her audience to dig into the ancient text, the Hebrew and Greek words which often lose meaning in translation. This method of study brings the Bible to life. Her most treasured resource is The Key Word Study Bible by AMG publishers. Andy gives these study Bibles away at speaking engagements, on her Facebook page, and this website.
Andy desires to empower people to step out into their call from God whether to a neighbor or a nation. She knows that a life lived with eternal purpose is lived with joy even in the most difficult circumstances. This theme runs throughout her writing and messages at conferences, retreats, and workshops.
Andy was a Word Weavers International mentor for four years and spent many hours each week encouraging other writers, support presidents of Word Weaver chapters, and launching new chapters. She has recently stepped down from mentoring to become the managing editor of the FCWC (Florida Christian Writers Conference) blog –a Word Weavers conference.
Her first Bible Study, The Book of Ruth, Key Word Bible Study (AMG publishers) was released December 2015. Her book A Mary Like Me (Leafwood Publishers) released in March 2016.
Both books are available on Amazon and CBD.com. A Mary Like Me is also available in Lifeway Stores, Barnes and Noble, and Mardell Family Christian Stores.
Andy and her retired soldier husband Mike, live in Wilmington, NC, where God sent them after 22 years of serving their country as a military family.
