Dr. Scott and Leah Silverii
Dr. Scott and Leah Silverii share seven kids, and two French bulldogs named Bacon and Beignet (aka Benny). A highly decorated law enforcement career promptly ended in 2015 when God called Scott out of public service and into His service.
God’s word to Scott was, “Son, you’ve spent your career locking men up. Now commit your life to setting them free.” He retired his career on that very day. The Chief admits that leading people to Christ is more exciting than the twelve years he spent undercover, sixteen years in SWAT, and five years as chief of police combined.
Leah enjoyed ten years of teaching before becoming a full-time writer and bestselling author. A native of Texas and graduate of TCU, her passion for the home and nurturing others drives her calling to ministry. An accomplished teacher, Leah’s heart for God’s Word serves as an anchor for the women she mentors along their faith walk.
Scott, who has earned a Master of Public Administration, a Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology and post-doctoral seminary hours was called to plant a church in 2016. Exclusive to online ministry, the church combated the negative influences reigning over social media.
In 2021, Scott and Leah stepped out in obedience and faith to plant a church community that had grown out of their home ministry. Five Stones Church in Dallas County, Texas began hosting services and Bible studies in January 2022.
Scott continues discipling men in person and remotely as guided by his north star Scripture: “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.” (1 Corinthians 16:13-14)
Scott and Leah love the Lord and the passion He’s placed on their hearts for ministering to people. An experienced speaker, mentor and confidential accountability partner, Scott is available for workshops, conferences and churches. He and Leah operate a nonprofit Christian publishing house that helps people share their stories with the world. Contact Five Stones Press for more information.

Cool! I like your dedication to the Force, and how you share bits of it on your blog. I am starting a Canada blog list – would you mind if I posted your blog to it? http://canadaism.wordpress.com/canada-blog-list/
Thank you. That would be wonderful, appreciate it.
Thank you for the visit! I worked at a police department and closely with my chief! Love cops! 😀

Mr Silverii —
My name is Blake Walker.
I never knew Mr Jacobs — though after reading your article, I wish I had — but I knew his wife. She was my teacher in 7th Grade and left quite a mark on me. Is it possible that you could provide me with any contact information? Or might I relay a simple ‘thank you’ to her through you.
She once prompted me — backed up with a riveting stare — to ask an intelligent question of a visitor we had in class one day. She meant business. I did (or tried to) ask a question that day. And I’ve strived my whole life to always ask ‘intelligent questions’, even when there’s been a cost. (Not everyone wants to hear them.) I guess it was a ‘right time, right place’ kind of thing, but that lesson stuck.
It was also — most definitely — a ‘right teacher’ kind of thing.
I will definitely pass along your message.
Teachers are truly special, teachers who impact our entire life are amazing.
Hi Scott – I look forward & enjoy reading your inspirational blogs. Thank you kindly !
Hi, Scott. I found your sight by clicking on a twitter link tweeted by an author friend. I was curious because of your twitter name. You see, I am a novelist, but I am also a parent of a Nicholls State student. In fact, the last time my husband and I visited her (we are from TX), we were sitting in the Weeping Willow cafe and two cops walked in for lunch. Everyone in the place greeted them, addressing one as “chief.” But what impressed us most was that these two men bowed their heads and prayed before eating. I take it one of those men was you! As we come for graduation in December, we will be sad to say goodbye to the town that has meant so much to our daughter. Thank you for making it a safe place for her to live and learn. And thank you for being a man of public faith and integrity. God has obviously given you great favor and success. Bless you!
I’m at a rare loss for words. “Thank you” seems too minimal for expressing my gratitude for taking your time to send this note. I do frequent Weeping Willow, and do answer to Chief, and we absolutely bow before meals and fellowship with each other no matter the place.
It just never occurred anyone may have noticed. Thibodaux is an amazing city, and I often share that God led me to leave a great law enforcement agency to serve the people of this city. He has blessed this administration, and I’m fortunate to be part of that grace.
If your family has a moment while in town, it would be a pleasure to meet you guys and a fellow Believer & author. If your daughter needs anything at all until that time, you have direct connect with me.
You cannot know the timeliness of your blessing.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Looking forward to reading your posts! Grace and peace to you!
Awesome & appreciate the kind blessings
In these days that we are living in it’s surely nice to know that their are some God fearing police officers. By you being born again you make a great witness to the other officers. I pray that those who are under your leadership will become born again as well.
I am sure you have those moments especially in your line of work that it can be odd, not different but odd. Reading your page about who you are I am reminded of Romans 13: 1-7 where it talks about “Submission To Human Authority In the Land”
God bless and I look forward to reading more of your postings. May God’s blessings be upon you and your family, and may His protection always be around you.
I am a retired LEO and every thing I see on this web site is fact based and hits at the heart of real policing. I thank you for your service and for this web site. I hope every LEO and any one thinking of this profession spend some time here and get the real story and the real way to police.
Thanks William and God bless you for having served.
Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
Any ideas? Thank you!
