"Lisa has been a dear and special friend for nearly 20 years. Each spring the Eastern Deanery Diocesan Council of Catholic Women has a conference with a guest speaker. In 2022, this little voice in my head kept telling me to ask Lisa to be the guest speaker, so I called her. Then, I asked the Deanery if they would be interested in having Lisa as the guest speaker, AND the Holy Spirit took it from there. Lisa gave an amazing talk and the reviews were incredible. The feedback that I received on her behalf included: "Very Inspirational! Best speaker! Awesome! Truly one of the best! Fantastic!" Lisa is a wonderful speaker and definitely very inspiring. We’re looking forward to hearing more from Lisa."
