Lisa Rowell

As a writer and speaker, Lisa’s heart beats for encouraging women, supporting parents in their role as a child’s first and best teacher, and pointing people to Jesus. 

After graduating from Samford University, Lisa worked for Southern Living magazine where she published her first article and enjoyed sampling goodies from the test kitchen. (And, yes, even the food that doesn’t make the final cut is delicious!)

Since then, Lisa has been on staff or written for popular parenting brands such as Kindermusik International, Reading Rainbow, and Parenting magazine. Her work has also been included in numerous Christian magazines, and Bible study and devotional collections and supported the missions of dozens of non-profits devoted to make our world a more livable and loving place.

More recently, Lisa served as the Communications Director and Online Church Director for a large multi-site church in north Atlanta. In July 2020, God led her to take a sabbatical from full-time ministry to write, Simplifying Rest: Stop Living Exhausted & Start Living Restored and A 30-Day Writing Journal: Biblical Affirmations, Journal Pages, and Mindfulness Prompts for Christian Writers.

However, Lisa considers some of her life’s best work to be the Brand Manager for Family Christian, helping  others to experience simple moments with Jesus in their everyday living.

Lisa lives in north Atlanta, with her husband of 25+ years, Clay, and their two daughters, Emerson and Ellery.
