Lesa Kay Smith is a registered nurse from a small town in south central Iowa. She is accomplished in many areas in the nursing profession,including internal medicine, oncology infusion, and college nursing.
She feels very blessed to have been a mother of one daughter and two sons, Jessica, Brandon, and Cody. Lesa and her husband of forty years, Kenny Smith, put a very strong emphasis on family values.
Lesa felt a very strong desire to write the story of the tragic loss of her middle son, Brandon, in 2008. Beautiful Gift is the story of how she found him in the afterlife, how she communicates with him, and how she—and the rest of her family—have an ongoing relationship with him.
