[Walter Christian Academy Release]: Dr. Edmond Kelly who was raised in Maywood and graduated from Walther Lutheran High School in 1995 recently announced the publication of his first book How ONE Choice Directs Your Destiny.

How ONE Choice Directs your Destiny is a self-inspirational book set as a three-part series that prepares a person to learn about their truth, trust their decision-making, and remaining in triumph once they have overcome.

The book is also an introduction to his philosophy, Mind Interpretation Theory, which focuses on teaching how to make righteous decisions, which will help begin the process of working smart, not hard, and living a life in excellence.

Walther Christian Academy, located at 900 Chicago Avenue in Melrose Park, will host a book-signing for Dr. Kelly on Friday, March 247 p.m. The public is invited to attend to hear from Dr. Kelly and copies of his book will be available for purchase.

Dr. Edmond Kelly Jr. has worked in the education field for fifteen years, but truly gained knowledge and wisdom during his time as a young boy in ministry and through receiving his Masters of Counseling in 2012 and doctoral degree in Educational Leadership in 2015 from Liberty University.

Dr. Kelly and his wife Felicia are blessed with two, beautiful children, Zoey and Elicia. He believes when making any decision, family should be the first thought in mind. He accredits his family as the guiding light to completing the book.

As a philanthropist, author, and co-founder of Crossover Gear clothing line, he felt that education will be the driving force to bless others in need. Through counsel and mentorship, he has created developmental programs for youth, such as, Heroes Of Tomorrow youth ministry.

He produced campaigns called the BACK UP Plan: Bullying Awareness Constitute Knowledge & Ultimate Protection, Crossover Cares Foundation (which will create scholarships for college bound students, contributed to charities yearly) and Operation Save-A-Life.org. The latter focuses on prevention of violence in the city of Chicago.

His passion for blessing others kept him grounded, humbled, and focused on making decisions to reach his own destiny, which is to give.
