I'm Lisa.

Speaker, Director of Arise sanctuary, wife & mum

I help provide a space for people to hear God's voice 

I am a speaker, a mother to two young girls, a wife to a legend, a friend to many and the founder and director of Arise Sanctuary, an organisation that runs luxury boutique retreats for women.  

A deep passion of mine is creating spaces for people to stop and hear God’s voice. Whether that’s with women on a retreat, one on one with someone or speaking from the platform before hundreds of people.  

In 2016 began a dream I had carried in my heart for over 8 years. To run boutique luxury retreats for women to come away with God, to rest, recharge and hear what God is saying to them in this season and the seasons to come. We have now run over 30 retreats here in Australia and overseas and every time I am deeply impacted by the way God meets with each woman and the transformations that take place.  

I am now receiving invitations to speak at conferences, churches, event gatherings and to facilitate retreats for other organisations. I cherish each opportunity given to speak and share what God has placed on my heart and lead people into a space to meet with God and hear His voice and connect in a real way with the Fathers heart. 

I am a qualified occupational therapist and life coach
