065 || How Heartbreak Brought Her Dream to Life || Lisa Whittle

Ep. 65 Lisa Whittle.png

Jesus is everything. This is the heart, the passion and the leadership approach of author and speaker, Lisa Whittle. Lisa latest books are: Put Your Warrior Boots On: Walking Jesus Strong Once and For All and 5 Word Prayers, a 40-day devotional. She is a sought-out Bible teacher for her wit and bold, bottom line approach. Wife of 22 years, mom of 3, lover of laughter, good food, interior design and The Bible, Lisa is a grateful work in progress. She would have never dreamed up this particular life, and yet she living proof that the life God has for us is always the one we really want in the end.


In this conversation, Lisa talks about the shift of moving from her dream to God’s dream and the difficulty of making that transition. She shares the baby steps that got her speaking and writing for the women of God, and we get into her battle with insecurity, which – if you struggle with insecurity, like most of us do -- I hope it helps to hear you’re not alone.

I love Lisa’s straight-forward style of speaking and reminding us who is really in charge of our life and our dreams. Hope you enjoy this week’s show!

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.
~ Ephesians 1:19-20 (NLT)

Though you are at the end of the earth,
the Lord your God will go and find you and bring you back again.

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.

~ Hebrews 13:8 (NLT)
