Lisa Miller lives in the beautiful state of Alaska with her family where the spirits of animals and men roam free.She is married to a wonderful man and they have three children and they used to foster girls which brought them lots of joy. She is currently a full-time college student and she writes inspirational poetry. Both are books of poetry with Bible verses sprinkled within the pages.They can be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
She is able through the help of The Holy Spirit to write about the beauty and simplicity of life. Through words she wants to reveal the beauty of Christ to the broken and lost spirits of humanity. Through pouring out her heart and tears and trying to be transparent she wants to encourage people to see we are in this together.
Lisa enjoys reading, writing, blogging, walking, family, social networking, scrap booking and photography. Her dad joined the Air Force when she was little so the world has been her playground. It is where she learned to get along with other people and accept herself.
She is very comfortable with books and pens and paper. She sometimes feels like she was born with a pencil in her hand and she started writing at six years old and it has just expanded from there. She has never passed a library or used bookstore that she has not liked.
She is a lady who comes from a Christian background and family. She came to know the Lord on a personal level when she was 17 years old. Since then she has been on a quest to learn more about Him and herself. On her journey she has come to realize her purpose in life is to write what is on God's heart and encourage the broken and lost souls of humanity with it.
Here are two quotes she thinks sums up her writing life:
"I am a little pencil in the hand of writing God who is sending out a love letter to the world."
"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart."
