Lisa is a notable miracle of our day, having been healed of a crippling disease as a baby.

But as her parents prayed for her, God miraculously healed Lisa before her first birthday.

In 1990, while serving at Lakewood Church, again Lisa’s life was spared when she opened a package containing a pipe bomb that exploded in her lap, riddling her office with nails and shrapnel. God miraculously protected her and she escaped with minor injuries.

Through all of her challenges and experiences, Lisa has become known as a respected ministry leader and Bible teacher. Lisa’s passion for God’s Word and love for people radiate in her practical, yet insightful messages. Lisa is a graduate of Oral Roberts University.
