Erin and Brooke are joined in this episode by Lisa Whittle!

Jesus is everything. It is the heart, the passion and the leadership approach of author and speaker, Lisa Whittle. Lisa is the author of 6 books including her newly released, Put Your Warrior Boots On: Walking Jesus Strong Once and For All and the 5 Word Prayers 40-Day Devotional, as well as a sought out Bible teacher for her wit and bold, bottom line approach. Wife, mom, lover of laughter, good food, interior design, and the Bible, Lisa is a grateful work in progress.

Biggest Takeaways:

  • This crazy-hard world calls for crazy-hard Jesus followers.
  • The same power is available to us that raised Jesus from the dead and seated Him at the right hand of the Father, we are then to walk in the authority of God (Eph. chapter 1).
  • “The trouble is, we are addicted to easy Christianity and it’s hard to get it out of our system. For many of us, it’s become the accepted way of life. We don’t see a problem with shallow or stale religion. We sit at the fringe and we think it’s as good as the center. We don’t see the danger in human attempts to jazz up the gospel, and we make it about us, but in the end, we pay.”
  • I know I need something more than spiritual flip-flops to walk through this life.
