Hello, my friend!
If you long for a place where the mask can drop and you can be real, come on over. I’m Lisa– a wife, a mom, and the founder of Walking with Purpose, and I know like you do that life gets messy, even when we’re desperately trying to do the right thing. And that’s what grace is all about. We aren’t enough, and just when we think that’s the end of the story, Jesus shows up and fills in the gaps. You are welcome here, and we encourage you to share the content most meaningful to you.
Founder & Chief Purpose Officer
Walking with Purpose
After hearing story after story of women looking for a safe place to ask questions about faith and needing a way to refuel, she decided to do something to bring change. The result of her holy discontent is Walking with Purpose. Lisa is crazy about women, loves Christ passionately, and thinks the most exciting thing in the world is to connect the former with the latter. Lisa holds a B.A. in psychology from St. Olaf College; she and her husband Leo have seven children and reside in St. Augustine, Florida. Even if she manages to get everyone to smile for the annual Christmas card photo, be assured, there's often sticky juice residue on the kitchen floor and an empty toilet roll in the bathroom.
Laura Phelps has a steady coffee date with Jesus every morning before the sun rises, and fully admits to a serious chips and salsa addiction. If she’s not in her filthy minivan, or doing the laundry, you can find her writing at her personal blog www.lauramaryphelps.com or speaking about her book, Victorious Secret: Everyday Battles And How To Win Them. She lives with her husband Nick, four children, and nine pets (Lord have mercy) in Newtown, CT.
Jen Gilbart is the director of marketing at WWP and a self-proclaimed Catholic newbie who feels blessed to be learning something new about God on a daily basis through her job at Walking with Purpose. When Jen's not at her computer, she is likely chauffeuring one of her two over-scheduled sons to a game/practice/lesson, in an effort to keep them off their Xbox/iPhones/PlayStation. Jen lives with her kids, husband and a growing number of pets in the New York metro area.
