C hildren are a gift from God and are extremely precious. However, as of 2014, there were 415,000 children in the Foster Care system – many suffering neglect, and physical and sexual abuse. Is it any wonder that many of our incarcerated are foster-care alum? The cycle needs to be broken to allow these children a fighting chance at life!

She is also a speaker and published author. Lisa decided to make a difference!
Her new book, Being Too Fierce shares her story, struggle and triumph. Learn how one can overcome horrendous abuse, make a difference and have a purpose.
