Welcome, Lisa


We’re so glad you joined us today, Lisa. Thank you for sharing a bit of your journey–and your heart.

Please tell us a bit about where you’ve been, where you are today, and where you’re headed.

Pre-Author Life of Lisa Stillwell 

I grew up in a small town in Benson, North Carolina. I lived in the country about a mile down a dirt road. My grandparents lived right beside of me. I would often walk next door just so I could hear their words of wisdom. They often would tell me about Jesus and how much he loved me. It made my young heart happy to hear that the God that made the pretty stars at night also loved me.

Growing up in the country was nice. I didn’t know then that God was there communicating to me through the fireflies I chased. He knew that one day I would chase His light even faster.

I wrote my first book–I Asked, God Spoke–several years ago. Every challenge I was going through at the time I would ask, “What are you trying to say to me, God?”

I would tie a Bible verse into it and write my devotion. I put them together and turned them into a book so others could learn from my highs and lows. The day my first books arrived brought much joy and excitement. I remember feeling a sense of accomplishment. I knew that I had done what God wanted me to do.

My most recent book–Christian Film Stars: Interviews With The Best–just released November 30, 2016. 

I was so blessed by writing this book! I was able to interview Alex Kendrick and Karen Abercombie from War Room; Shannen Fields from Facing the Giants; and so many others in the faith-based industry. The stars also give their testimony about what led them to the Lord and what started them on their journey.

I felt in my heart it was important to write this book because there are so many faith-based films that people know nothing about. Hopefully, this book will reach hearts and touch lives.

I have also published two booklets based in personal experience: Dealing with Mom’s Cancer: a Story of Faith and When Someone You Love Does not Believe.

Any Lisa Stillwell advice?

The best advice I can give when it comes to writing or anything else you are led to do is to remember who you are doing things for. Not everyone is going to care about what you are doing as much as you. When you think about quitting remember why you started. (Tweet That!) If you start it with and for God, you’ll finish it in the same manner. Don’t give up!

Lord, we give you the credit for the good in our lives. Without You we could do nothing. Walk with us and keep our eyes and ears trained on You. For Jesus’ sake 

… apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:5b

Trust the One Who Loves You: Baxter Lesson #1

IMG_3674
Ten-week-old Baxter, a lovable Cavapoo (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/miniature Poodle mix)

Some lessons are timeless.

In THE CALLING OF ELLA MCFARLANDwhich is set in 1905, Lily is thrust into an unfamiliar world that bears little resemblance to her former life. How she responds testifies to her character, tenacity, and bright mind. 

When Baxter, our brand new Cavapoo, showed up on our doorstep yesterday–with 2015 pedigree in paw–he was thrust into a strange new world. A bit scary. 

Unnamed faces.

Unknown voices. 

Unfamiliar scents, noises, and rules.

Downright uncomfortable.

Baxter adjusted, as I knew he would. His pedigree testifies, after all, to his character, tenacity, and bright mind. But when I look into his chocolate eyes … when he nuzzles my neck … or twirls in circles at the sight of me … do I care a speck about his bloodline? 

No, pedigrees don’t matter in this place called Home. Unconditional love has taken over. 

Life Lesson #1 from Baxter: Sometimes life is scary. Trust the One who loves you.

Some lessons are just plain timeless.

P.S. Lily Sloat agrees.

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. Deuteronomy 7:9
