Western New York Christian news publication. Her first book, Messages of Hope, is an anthology of the articles she penned for the newspaper. Like pieces of her heart, every sentence was written from a place where God was willing to reveal Himself to her as she struggled to care for her dying son.

Jill writes with a tenderness and candor that has served her and her readers well in laying her soul bare on the page. Through deeply personal journal entries, she has written, Prayers for Those Who Grieve and Prayers of Hope for the Brokenhearted, sharing her most intimate struggles through the loss of her son, Hunter, and the many painful experiences that followed along her path of healing.

Her unique journey through life has been forever memorialized in Without a Word, How a Boy’s Unspoken Love Changed Everything, a memoir of hope and healing that shares the story of her son, Hunter’s, incredible impact on their family. The deeply human narrative chronicles the dramatic way God rescued the Kelly family and revealed Himself through the suffering of their son, turning their hearts to the suffering of His Son ─ and ultimately restoring their love.

“Oddly, I have been writing for years…in my journals.  Never did I ever think that God would allow my writings to touch people in the way they have,” Jill recalls. “I’m humbled and grateful though I will never fully comprehend why God chooses to use broken vessels, like me, to reveal His heart.”

“I’m passionate about the Word of God and can’t live without it,” she continues. “Truly, the more I hide it in my heart the more it fills the words I speak and put on paper.  The written word is a powerful tool; yet without His love and grace in every line and letter, what is penned can’t possibly change a heart or life.  My words are meaningless without the story of who God is woven throughout.  Ultimately, it’s what’s left unsaid that has the deeper, everlasting impact.”

Yossi grew up in Tel Aviv. He served his mandatory three years of military service in the Israeli navy, during which time he lived with tribal Bedouins in the Sinai Desert. He later studied business and philosophy in academic and authentic environments. Ten years after almost losing his life during his memorable trip in the Amazon, Yossi returned to the Amazon River valley that was the site of his remarkable adventure and made it his home. He was instrumental in the creation and construction of Chalalan Ecolodge, a model eco-tourism village that inspires the Amazon basin and the world to this day.

During this time Yossi organized two national reunions of all indigenous groups to inform them on issues of intellectual property and their rights and roles in the fight over resources in the Amazon. His efforts and work contributed to the creation of the Madidi National Park, the largest biosphere conservation belt in Bolivia.

The next phase of his life was spent in what Yossi aptly terms the ‘field of agony,’ when he dedicated seven years to the treatment, rehabilitation and reintegration of opiate addicts throughout the world.

In addition to publishing his books Jungle and Laws of the Jungle, Yossi has initiated various business ventures and been involved in grassroots efforts for reconciliation and healing in the Middle East. In recent years Yossi operated an interior and landscape design label called collecteco to represent his commitment to ecology, connection to nature and respect for indigenous cultures.

Yossi is currently co-founder and CEO at Blinq.me, a Silicon Valley based start-up company financed by 500 Startups acceleration Micro Fund. Blinq is an innovative mobile solution that with one touch brings social updates from across social media platforms about any contact so you enter into every dialogue with confidence.

Yossi is married to Belinda and father to four children: Mia, Cayam, Nissim and Shalem. They live in Israel, Australia and the USA.
