Lisa Appelo is a speaker, writer and Bible teacher. Eight years ago, Lisa went to bed happily married and woke up a widow and single mom to seven. As she navigated grief and shepherded her children through their own grief, God not only mended her broken heart but reshaped it. Lisa inspires women to deepen their faith in the hard and to find hope in grief. She’s passionate about rich Bible study and teaches a weekly ladies Bible class at her home church, First Baptist Church, Jacksonville.
Lisa is a featured speaker with She Found Joy and regular contributor to iMOM.com and Sweet to the Soul ministries. Her writing has been featured at Proverbs 31 Ministries, Risen Motherhood, (in)courage, Jennifer Rothschild and more.
Lisa’s a former litigating attorney, writing briefs all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. After years of juggling cases and babies, she stepped into the hidden work of mothering. Her days now are filled top to bottom with stewarding her precious children, writing, ministry, speaking and running enough to justify lots of dark chocolate.
