LETS CHAT FRIDAY with Lisa Reimer Whittle
(Lisa) Wow. That's a loaded question. But I guess I'd say that I'm a woman who is passionately in love with Jesus, my family, and ministering to the church.
(Robin) Has there been an "aha" moment in your life that has changed your perspective?
(Lisa) Again, I've had more than one of these. I write about one in my new book. It was a time when I was confronted about playing the Jesus game at camp by someone I barely knew. I never forgot about it, so much so that it made it into my new book. :)
(Lisa) I learned a verse as a child I refer to often. Psalm 56:3: "But when I am afraid, I will trust in you." It's so simple, yet so powerful. I also love Zephaniah 3:17. And a song from long ago by Amy Grant called "All I Ever Have to Be" ministers to my soul.
(Lisa) Loyalty is a big one. I want to both get it from and give it to my friends.
(Robin) What are a few of your favorite books you have in your collection you would share with a friend?
(Lisa) The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning is one of my all time favorites. Revolution by George Barna changed my life. Anything by Joni Eareckson Tada I read.
(Robin) When life seems to go crazy, what is one thing you do to bring comfort and peace?
(Lisa) My spiritual answer (and a truthful one) is that I get to a place of quiet and talk to Jesus. It's really the moment I feel most at peace. On a less spiritual note, bubble baths do me wonders. :)
(Robin) What are your deepest passions?
Lisa, thank you for stopping in to chat. You are a breath of fresh air. Blessings to you as you continue to let your light shine for Christ.
Please share with Lisa just how you were blessed today. I know she would love to hear from you!!
