While serving as the director of Women's Outreach at Focus on the Family, Lisa Harper recognized the "deep need" for women of all ages to be encouraged and equipped in their faith, and to hear a clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In order to help meet those needs, Lisa envisioned a national women's conference, and thus Renewing the Heart became a reality!
As a result of her ministry at Renewing the Heart events — and the connection her stories through teaching and writing have had with hundreds of thousands of women — Lisa is now a sought-after speaker at women's retreats, conferences and other events.
She is known for her authenticity, humorous anecdotes, and compelling ability to teach and apply deep biblical truths. Her academic resume includes a Master of Theological Studies with honors from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis — and she's written several books including Relentless Love, Every Woman's Hope, and a trio of Bible studies disguised as books.
When recently asked about her accomplishments she responded with a grin, saying, "I'm definitely grateful for the opportunities God's given me; but don't forget, He often uses donkeys and dimwits!"
