Meet Lesia

When Lesia was nine years old, a gas explosion in her grandparents' basement changed her life forever. Though Lesia was left with burns on over 50% of her body and psychological trauma, it instilled an even deeper determination to share lessons learned about courage, resilience, and healing. This led to Lesia founding her nonprofit, Angel Faces, writing her book, Heart of Fire, and becoming a motivational speaker. Lesia's goal for all of us is to learn to embrace trauma, rather than let it define us. 

"Every challenge is a strength waiting to be discovered."

– Lesia Stockall Cartelli

Heart of Fire

A captivating and brave nonfiction book about embracing and overcoming traumatic events and finding that your challenges have become your gifts.  An extraordinarily well written book that will take you from tears to laughter throughout the pages.

Lesia has an amazing story. From the beginning to end, I was mesmerized by the story of her life. Her inner calling to take on the trauma of a childhood filled with pain and turn it into something beautiful is inspiring.
