About Lisa


Jesus is everything. It is the heart, the passion and the leadership approach of author, speaker and ministry leader, Lisa Whittle. As the daughter of a pastor, Lisa’s longest community is with the Church, which has become her greatest place of ministry. Her love runs deep to see people pursue Jesus for life, grow deep roots of faith, and walk strong in the midst of a world that so often seems to have gone crazy.
For this reason, Lisa has dedicated her life to writing and speaking about the truth of Jesus Christ and how wanting Him the most changes everything. Lisa is a bestselling author of 8 books and a new Bible study including The Hard Good (September 2021) and Jesus Over Everything (March 2020), Put Your Warrior Boots On (June 2017) and 5 Word Prayers (October 2017), and a sought-out Bible teacher for her wit and bold, bottom line approach. Her with you-for you signature style is a favorite of audiences who have her coming back to speak into them year, after year. From retreats to rehab facilities to college campuses to the large church or conference stage, Lisa’s desire remains the same: to point people to the Jesus who can change their life.


Lisa’s books include:

In addition to speaking, media appearances and writing online, Lisa is the founder of Ministry Strong and the popular Jesus Over Everything podcast. She has done master’s work in Marriage and Family Counseling and advocated for Compassion, International.

To declare literally means to acknowledge possession – to recognize what is already ours and walk in that truth, affirming to ourselves and coming into agreement with God what He has already said about us and about Himself. This is how the Jesus follower is meant to function. Instead, I see us living below our potential…forgetting who God is and who we are in Him…and as a result, letting every year slip by with us feeling like a defeated victim. Let’s make this year different.
