In 2016, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and my husband was diagnosed with 4th stage throat cancer. Then, in 2018, I was again thrust into turmoil with the loss of my husband. The financial and emotional burdens that these events left me to face, as a widow, were overwhelming. I was grief stricken and in the depths of despair.

Writing is something I always felt the desire to accomplish. So, after completing my chemo and radiation therapies, I wrote a Christmas story for a family Christmas Eve gathering.. The writing was very therapeutic. It was evident that this was a healing part of the recovery process and an aid to help me cope with my tremendous grief.

One of the reasons I chose to write was to contribute Christian Principles to children. The idea of how a children’s book could make a difference in young lives really impacted me.

I realized years ago that I was passionate about children understanding that simple prayers relate to our everyday situations and circumstances. It is very rewarding to think that I could share that message. Reflecting on those memories helped me to determine how I could begin my life all over again.

In August 2019 I submitted my first children’s book, based on my Christmas story, to a prominent Christian publishing company for review. I chose the name Leigh Ana O’Hara as my author pseudonym.

My book was accepted and I was offered a Publishing contract with them.

They informed me that cost of publishing, marketing and distribution of the book is $7000. My prayer is to begin a career in writing faith-based children’s books and novels.

I believe that writing will allow me to learn more about how to participate and give to communities around the globe, as well as bring Christian Principles to my home community.

It is very humbling for the opportunity of reaching people that prayerfully can help me with my cause.

If you feel led to help support me in publishing my Christmas story book for children - your contributions are greatly appreciated.

It is comforting to realize that the prayers and financial support from others will empower children to understand the effectiveness of simple prayer.

Again, thank you so much for your generous contributions.

May God Bless You,

Jet Campla

54321 GO...Children Aglow

Hello  Everyone:

In my Crowd Fund Letter, I gave you information on the health issues that my husband and I endured and how my therapy included writing.  Well, I am pleased to tell you that it has a very exciting blessing from the Lord that will bless children and families far and wide!
As you well know, children look to us to create a joyous atmosphere during the Holiday season. Today, I want to encourage you to join the children – the happy faces of this project. Help make their Christmas brighter by sharing in their future. The book series I am writing is titled Simple Prayers.

Simple Prayers is a storybook collection that outlines how giving can bring unexpected answers to a child’s simple prayers. The first book to be released is A Christmas Story. The season of giving is an excellent launch pad for this extraordinary collection. Too often, Generosity is a trait learned after childhood, but the benefits to both giver and recipient can be made clear much earlier if we teach children the meaning of the Season and the words of our Savior, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” The Christmas Season holds within it so many opportunities to praise the Lord and honor His Son with acts of generosity. This collection brings about excitement in reading time and leaves the children looking forward to each new adventure.

This project on Generosity needs your help to become a reality.  For just $1, everyone can participate!  How exciting is that? The project, 54321 Go…Children Aglow, gives children the opportunity to understand that Simple Prayers make a difference.  

Please, consider planting a seed in a child’s life by making these books possible. Publishing is costly but the books are timeless and bring traditions to the forefront.

How can you help with Children’s  Aglow?  IT IS EASY as 54321 GO to givesendgo.com/jetsbook

Plant your $1,$2,$3,$4,or $5 one time or monthly gift to support publishing costs and make  each  book  affordable and available  for every child.

Help Me Make This Happen!

Join  to celebrate and share in laughter and joy in the life of a child.


With Blessings,

Leigh Ana
