Eric Ludy's spouse is author Leslie Ludy. The two were married in December 1994 in Denver, Colorado. Their love story garnered much attention from the Christian community and was detailed in their book When Dreams Come True.[1]

Eric Ludy’s first book was published when he was 24 years old. From that point forward Ludy began traveling around the world, speaking on the principles of the Christian life.[2] Over a three-year period from 2005 to 2008, Ludy, along with his wife, Leslie, wrote 11 books. Ludy's books and teachings are used in Christian training curriculums by organizations such as CareNet, Youth With A Mission, and Compassion International.[3]

In 2009, Ludy became President of Ellerslie Mission Society.[4]

Eric and Leslie have six children; Hudson, born in December 2004; Harper, adopted from Korea in July 2007; Kipling, adopted domestically in November 2008, Avonlea, born in June 2009; and Lily and Rees, twins adopted from Haiti in 2012. Four of the Ludy’s six children are adopted and this strong support of adoption and orphan rescue has been a hallmark of Eric Ludy’s ministry and life.[5]
