S02 E04: Goodbye Guilt and Shame
Healing the Soul of a Woman – Part 3

This week, the ladies have a special guest join them—the one and only Lisa Harper, who shares a powerful story about how the direction of her life changed as she let God uncover the abuse from her past. Joyce also teaches us how to combat the enemy and press beyond our feelings by focusing on the God of the Bible and what His Word says about you. This is an episode you don’t want to miss—you’ll even learn how to fight back in your leather pants!

Special Guest

Lisa Harper

Rarely are the terms hilarious storyteller and theological scholar used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person, but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She has been lauded as a gifted communicator, whose writing and speaking overflow with colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life. But her greatest accomplishment to date is getting to be Missy’s mama. In April 2014, after a difficult two-year journey, Lisa finally got to bring her adopted daughter home from Haiti and she hasn’t stopped grinning since.
