Hi, I’m Lisa.
My life was completely transformed by A Course in Miracles and it is my joy to teach and share the simple steps I took that others may experience freedom from fear and the peace of God, which is your natural inheritance. You are meant to be happy.
I am a teacher, healer and author of the best-selling book Gorgeous for God. My life was transformed by A Course in Miracles and resulted in healing depression, addiction, and alcoholism.
I am the co-founder of the nonprofit organization Teachers of God Foundation http://www.teachersofgod.org which is dedicated to encouraging, inspiring, and supporting individuals through the transformation from fear to love, through retreats, workshops and online programs including:
I am a Unity Prayer Chaplain and co-hosts a weekly radio show on Unity Online Radio with my husband Bill Free called Living in Joy/Reflections on A Course in Miracles: http://www.unity.fm/program/LivingInJoy
I have devoted my life to Jesus Christ and to helping people transform their lives through the practical application of A Course in Miracles. I was alcoholic, depressed and a food addict. Every day I lived in fear and I thought this was normal. I “studied” the Course and no matter what I did or how much I tried, nothing much seemed to change for me, or at least not for long. I would experience a brief moment of joy, only to be followed by fear and old habits again. So I studied harder, and still not much happened.
So I did something radical: I DID WHAT JESUS SAID TO DO IN A COURSE IN MIRACLES. I gave myself a new beginning. I started trusting in God. I took responsibility for the things that seemed to be happening to me. I made a choice to stop being a victim. I gave up conflict. I was quick to forgive (and one day I realized there is nothing to forgive!) I began to make it a daily practice to ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and direction, to set aside time every day to sit quietly with God, and to stay in gratitude. I started BEING the light of the world (instead of just thinking about it). One by one, things that had been a problem for so many years began falling away: I lost my desire for cigarettes and alcohol (on the same day: March 29, 2001). Addiction, sickness and depression disappeared completely. My life went from lack, poverty and debt to one of abundance and generosity. So it is my joy to share the practices that have worked for me because no one needs to suffer or be sick. I have found that if you have a willingness to forgive and to see things differently, you can change your life.
Peace and great joy to you on the path.
