    Love Like This

    Holidays are exciting and challenging all at the same time. I was visiting with my friend and publisher Jeremy regarding my upcoming book release of “Just As You Are.” I had shared with him that now is a hard time to get things done in promoting my book with Christmas a week away. Jeremy said, “Lisa you are a teacher, and my wife and I as well as others need to hear how do you survive the holidays; such as shopping, Christmas cards, or getting a long with loved ones at holiday gatherings.” Prior to my conversation I had just posted on my Face Book Ministry Page a Scripture verse…
