  • I am thankful for Lisa’s courage to share her life story, the consequences she endured along the way and the blessings that come from a relationship with our Savior.   I don’t remember a longer line at the end of the program to meet Lisa and to purchase her book!  Hope to work with Lisa again in Michigan very soon

  • Thank you for your stirring presentation at the VA Women in Corrections Conference.  Not only did we receive positive feedback about your presentation on the evaluations, it was heartwarming to see so many of my colleagues moved by your words.  I saw women both smiling and crying, and the standing ovation you received is a testimony to how impressed these ladies were.  Thank you for the inspiration!
