The best part of being a writer is connecting with the women on the other side of the screen or page. I will never get over how much that means. To bring the message in person.

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.

“Lisa-Jo was funny, relevant, and relatable to every person in attendance on Mother’s Day. If you are looking for a dynamic and inspiring storyteller for your next event then Lisa-Jo is your person. I would highly recommend her.” ~ Dr. Virgil Grant, Senior Pastor of Eastside Community Church in Richmond, KY.
