Based on the true-life events that led Koedi Nealy to start changing lives one penny at a time at the age of seven, “Pennies from Heaven” teaches children that they are never too young to do great things for God. Koedi’s journey culminated in forming a non-profit that currently serves the homeless population in Houston, Texas, helping the most overlooked and undervalued people in the community.

If you could go back in time, where would you go?

I would go back to when I was a little girl at my Grandma’s house (NiNi). She is in my childrens’ book! My grandma has been in heaven for 4 years and I miss her very much

What is your favorite dessert?

Ice cream!

That is mine too, by the way! (She Just Loves Books)

What’s the funniest thing that ever happened to you?

My senior high school production was Wizard of Oz, and I played the Scarecrow! This was such a funny character to play and there were lots of jokes and laughs about it off and on stage.

The scariest?

The summer before my Junior year I was out of state for a church retreat and was involved in an active shooter incident. I remember hiding in the hotel bathroom and texting to my mom what I thought would be my last words to her, “I’m sorry I didn’t get to tell you about my amazing week with Jesus. I love you.

Thank you for sharing that! What a terribly scary feeling. I’m so glad you are okay and you had God with you. (She Just Loves Books)

The strangest?

One night when I was home alone, I almost called the cops on a possum.
