About

 

IMG_9681Welcome to my site! What I want you to know about me first and foremost is that I am a desperate sinner saved only by the grace and mercy of a loving, sovereign God. The work of Christ in His death and resurrection is my only hope! Apart from Him I am lost, dead in my sins and transgressions. He saved me, not because of anything I have done, but because of His great mercy and the love with which He loved me. It is my humble desire and greatest joy to seek to testify to this gospel here on my blog as in all of my life. You can find out more about what I believe under the “Faith” tab above.

I’m a happily married, stay at home mom of four sons and one daughter-in-law. I also teach Bible study and serve as a volunteer Director and Counselor at our local crisis pregnancy center. Mine is a small and ordinary life full of all things mundane and mediocre, but it is good. Serving my God as a wife, mom, and Bible teacher (and occasional blogger) is a high and holy calling and I am humbly grateful.

I have been blogging at Lisa writes… for almost ten years and I have thoroughly enjoyed writing about the ordinary life: from motherhood to books to faith to the occasional recipe even. Proclaiming the glory of God in Christ here in these simple reflections is a joy and challenge both. I welcome our conversation via comments or email. I’m so glad you stopped by!

  1. Hello, I discovered your blog today. Among a number of posts I want to remark on two:

    https://lisaspence.com/2013/03/28/i-am-more-than-my-motherhood/

    I am kind of like “Oooo Rah!” Really? There are more women out there that think these things too! I’ve felt so isolated with my few friends that I can talk about these things.

    So, your voice, however small, ministered to and convicted me today. Maybe I should speak out a little more, because maybe there are more Christian women out there that feel just as isolated as I by the “motherhood”/”wife” role that is often the focus of women’s ministries.
