“Lisa-Jo blew me away. I laughed and cried and walked away feeling like I could go home refreshed and ready to mother!” ~ Raising Generations Today conference attendee


Relevant and Real. Lisa-Jo brought these two valuable speaking dynamics that fit into an audience waiting for hope, humor and honesty. We would bring Lisa-Jo back as our Keynote in a heart-beat. 
~September McCarthy, Founder and Visionary, Raising Generations Today Annual Conference for Moms

It is amazing to watch the audience as Lisa-Jo speaks; they are drawn to her because of her down-to-earth honesty and transparency. Once you have Lisa-Jo as a guest speaker, you will want to invite her back again and again.
~ Bunni Cooper, Co-Director Calvary Women’s Fellowship

Speaking Topics

Lisa-Jo speaks to women of all ages and can tailor her message depending on the event and the focus.

She loves encouraging women to see themselves as God sees them – wildly loved and capable of being world changers.

And she’s passionate about sharing the Gospel of motherhood – everything from never wanting to be a mom, being afraid motherhood means missing out on your life and discovering the glory and the sacrifice of God in the wash and rinse and repeat routine of being someone’s mom.
