More About the Author
Gorgeous for God is the story of my own spiritual awakening, based on A Course in Miracles. It is very ordinary story. Things happened slowly for me--there were no bells or whistles. No going into the light. I didn't have a near-death experience. Instead, one by one, things that were no longer serving me dissolved and fell away--alcoholism, cigarette-smoking, fear, conflict, doubt. I found that as time went on, the ego-identity that I had built up over the years started to crumble, slowly, very slowly (at times painfully-slow!) and I found myself having almost no interest in the things I used be interested in. For me, enlightenment was when I stopped seeking for ways to improve myself. It was when I recognized that my old way of being was not working. I realized the necessity to see myself differently, as loved, loving and lovable, and not try to come up with a new improved identity.

I can't quite figure out who this book is for. If you've studied the Course, you already know most of what she's saying, and she sheds little additional light. It would have been more successful, in my estimation, presented as a book introducing people to the Course: "The central tenets of the Course are...Life is illusory because...Here's how it brought an end to my self-destructive, shallow, meaningless life, and it can do that for you, too..." But she assumes readers' advanced knowledge of the course, and such readers already know that life is illusory, etc. I can only assume this book appeals to people who like her personality, her florid writing style. She writes about having prestigious jobs, and losing them, along with boyfriends, Bridget Jones-type stuff (a perspective somewhat foreign to me, though these stories obviously resonate with some). Ordinarily I like personal anecdotes but I didn't find the stories sufficiently interesting or relevent enough (to my life).
I did like her explanation for developing the catch-phrase "Gorgeous for God.' And I liked her admonitions to just get off your butt and go out and be good to others.Read more ›
It contains numerous quotes from 'A Course In Miracles', many examples and interesting stories of her own experience.
Throughout it is packed with good sound practical advice about 'life'.
Highly recommended for anyone studying ACIM or asking about 'the meaning of life'.
Worth reading - several times.
Full of stories that relate to where you are at -- as well as where you want to go. You won't find false tales here. And you won't find false promises. Instead, you will find the words of a dedicated woman who is simply herself and therefore instantly helpful. Yes, the author experiences transformation. But because she is me -- I, too, know I can experience transformation.
A wonderully "un lofty" book for those of us who who need a teacher and a friend with whom we can relate.

When I picked up a course of miracles I knew I needed a teacher. So I found Lisa. Lisa's book is such a help if you want to understand a Course in Miracles and want to understand yourself. It's a delightful read with plenty of new insights to awareness and perception.
With Lisa's guidance my thinking has become so much clearer to me. I am able to catch myself doing exactly that which will give me a negative result. Also I'm understanding so much more about the law of attraction.
In my opinion - my opinion is never humble ha ha I found Gorgeous for God to be refreshing, entertaining, thoughtful and mind expanding. I got more than my money's worth.
this book, like her daily blog, is a mighty companion.
