“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

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 – how there is no such thing as “just a mom” and addressing the hard issues like what to do when your temper scares you and how to “fall in like” with our kids when they push all our buttons. As well as reminding women that when God calls them to follow Him, He’s calling their kids with them. With practical examples of what this looks like.
