The Father's House 2016

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

Authentic, winsome and wise, Lisa-Jo brings an electricity to a room that moves and mobilizes. People will not only be speaking of the experience months later — they will genuinely be living powerfully transformed lives. An unforgettable experience that rises above the crowd. ~ Ann Voskamp, Board Member of Q Ideas.

Compelling and down to earth. Lisa-Jo’s ability to offer practical ideas and methods woven together with a biblical foundation and laughter along the way are captivating.”
~ Janella Thaxton, Event Manager, MOPS International, Inc.
