About Club31Women

Do you ever wonder if a loving, lasting marriage is possible?

If you’ll have a close relationship with your kids when they’re grown up and gone?

If you have what it takes to create an orderly, peaceful home?

Do you wonder?

I believe you can have all these things.

Yes, I believe any Christian woman can enjoy a loving marriage, a strong relationship with her children, and a joy-filled home.

Maybe that doesn’t sound realistic to you. Or sounds like something you long for so deeply and yet feels so far away.

If so, then let me share what others say about their own struggle…and the inspiring and practical help they’ve found here at Club31Women: 

I’m busy with three sweet kiddos, pets, and a hubby who works a lot of hard restaurant hours, so I don’t get out a whole lot where I can be around other mamas or ladies like me. So reading what you share really helps me feel NOT ALONE in some of my struggles.

I tend to be really hard on myself but hearing the same issues coming from someone I admire is like a burden lifted off my soul. I always read your posts and emails and I thank Jesus for you today!  By you, I am encouraged to keep on doing my best for Him and not live under the constant self- condemnation I’m so prone to. ~ Caroline

I can’t say enough how much your blog has blessed our home over the past few months. I’m daring to look forward to a Christmas – a little less of the pain of discord and dissension that our past 10 years of marriage have held – and honestly, throughout the year as well. We have 2 young boys that I homeschool and I want them to grow up with happy memories. ~ Lisa

I absolutely love your posts. They have become part of my daily reading list (on top of the Bible of course :)).I find that I am always sharing your posts with the women in my life…. I believe that Club31Women really stands for things that every woman can relate to. ~ Nerisha

How about you? Just imagine the blessing of a deeper, sweeter relationship with your husband. Think of the kind and caring relationship you desire for your children. And picture an orderly and joy-filled home where everyone wants to gather.

When you join Club31Women you’ll find the encouragement and practical help you need to enjoy a loving marriage, a close relationship with your kids, and a peaceful, happy home.

From Successful Single to STRUGGLING

Successful and single. That’s how my story started.  Traveling around the world. Earning my degrees. Exciting job opportunities.

But then, at 26 years old,  I met the man of my dreams and we started our family. I went from being at the top of the world to the bottom of the laundry pile and the experience was devastating. Here I was in the most important job I could ever have – wife and mother – and I had no idea what I was doing. I’d never felt so ill-equipped in my life. Why hadn’t anyone prepared me for this role? Why had I been thrown into marriage and family life without a lifeline?

Slowly and painfully, I began to acquire the spiritual perspective and practical skills that I needed to do my job well—not perfectly, but well.  What a hard-earned gift! Now after 24 years of marriage and 8 children later, here I am. Ready to share with others so you’ll never have to feel as “on your own” as I did.

Welcome to Club31Women! I’m very glad you’re here.

Real Life with Lisa

I watch one of your videos in the morning when I have a little time for me, and I feel like I’m one of your daughters and we are talking while we sip our coffees. It’s a lovely feeling because you look a lot like my mom, so beautiful and kind. You voice is so gentle and calm, and to hear such kind words of encouragements – it’s a blessing to me and to other women for sure.

You make a difference in the life of others and I pray you will continue to share your wisdom with us and bring God closer to our marriages and families. I didn’t have a very good example of marriage when I was a kid, and I promised to myself that mine will be different. ~ Laura
