Often referred to as hilarious storyteller and theological scholar, Lisa is a gifted communicator who is anything but stereotypical. She has written 11 books, has three best selling Bible curriculums and travels the world telling women about their Savior who loves them beyond compare. She is grateful for the opportunities God has given her but will be quick to remind you that God often uses donkeys and rocks. In April 2014 Lisa was finally able to adopt, Missy and has not stopped grinning since. See more about Lisa at lisaharper.net.
