Whether this is your first time visiting or you are returning, we want to welcome you to LisaShawCares.com. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit. We’ve been hard at work making changes to the website to fit this new phase of the journey to better serve your personal, professional or ministerial needs. Same message but delivered a bit differently and we’re excited about it.
Do you live with the mindset of beginning with the end in mind?
1 Samuel 16:7 (AMP) But the Lord said to Samuel, Look not on his appearance or at the height of his stature, for I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.
Many times women see themselves based on what others have said about them, how they’ve been treated and the lies that the enemy (our adversary) spews into their thoughts. All too often women judge themselves by their weight, shape, facial features, hair, their social, educational and economic status, and even based on whether or not they have children. And if that’s not bad enough we see the harsh critique among us as women.
Ecclessiastics 4:9-10 (ESV)Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!
I am a woman who believes 100% in the support of other women. It is not that I don’t support men or children, because I do, but I firmly believe that when women support each other it makes them better in every aspect of their lives whether they are mothers, sisters, daughters, nieces, friends, single women, married, divorced, widowed, business women, ministry leaders, church workers, volunteers, care-givers, students, teachers, and more. When women hold up the arms of one another it touches families, communities, cities, states, nations and the world. Just think of the impact we can make to our generation, the one ahead of us and to the ones behind us. I’m not necessarily talking about mentoring, although I wholeheartedly agree with mentoring and have mentored many women over the years; but I’m talking about just being there for each other–women helping women.
One thing I know for sure in over three decades of my walk with God– He can handle it. Whatever the it is, you can be assured that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit can handle it.

What’s the it in your life right now? Fear, anger, anxiety, worry, frustration, painful memories, penetrating problems robbing you of sleep. Perhaps it’s joylessness, loneliness, discouragement, or the bitterness of rejection or betrayal.
