More About the Author

Passionate. Edgy. Relatable. Powerful. Funny. These words describe Lisa Bevere--international speaker, bestselling author, and co-host of "The Messenger" television program, which broadcasts in more than 200 countries.

Since 1996, Lisa has written many bestselling books, including Fight Like a Girl, Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry, Nurture, and Out of Control and Loving it. Her books have been printed in over 20 languages worldwide. Her latest book, Lioness Arising: Wake Up and Change Your World, challenges women to find their purpose in life and use it to change the world. Lisa uses the image of a lioness to illustrate the courage, power, strength and the fearless life women are capable of living.

Nearly 20 years ago, Lisa and her husband John, also a bestselling author and speaker, founded Messenger International (www.MessengerInternational.org) in Orlando, Fla. Messenger International is an organization founded to inspire godliness and release people into fulfilled lives in Christ. The ministry relocated to Colorado Springs, Colo., in 2001 and since has grown internationally with offices in the United Kingdom and Australia.

In her transparent style, Lisa shares God's Word woven with personal experiences to empower lives with freedom and transformation. Her heart breaks over social injustice, and as an advocate for change, she rallies others to be an answer to desperate problems near and far. She is the founder of Pearl Alliance, an outreach branch of the ministry raising funds and awareness to stop human trafficking. (www.PearlAlliance.org)

When she's not out changing the world, Lisa resides in Colorado Springs, where she begins her days with mochas and ends them laughing around the dinner table with family. She enjoys riding her Ninja motorcycle with the love of her life, John, and spending time with their four sons, stunning daughter-in-law and adorable grandbaby.

Format: Paperback
This book is a powerful, sharp hitting expose' on some of the areas of our human nature that can easily be hidden to others. Lisa is bold in pulling no punches as she details behaviours that we are all prone to and often justify because 'everyone else is doing it'. Lisa highlights many areas specific to our modern situations where we fail to love,honour, fear and serve God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. In doing this we are failing to obey Jesus' first command (Matt 23:37&38). And in failing the first, we cannot obey the second (v.39). Prior to reading this book, I am ashamed to say that it was often the consideration of what others would think of me that determined my speech and actions, not a reverant fear of serving my Creator and Lord
This book helps women specifically to realise the enormity of what it is to serve God in this complete way. It is quite literally the loss of all control, leaving total faith dependance in the Lord and Creator of the Universe. It was not until I read this book that I realised how poorly I was performing in many areas of my life, in comparison to Gods perfect standard. Areas where I may have suspected some sickness if I had cared to heed my very muted conscience, and others where I was totally blind & in darkness. The chapters on fear and gossip were almost mind-blowing, as the depth of information contained within shone much needed light and understanding on how deeply rooted these things are, dictating many of my thoughts, responses, directions.
Many anecdotes throughout the book are evidence of Lisa's personal experience of complete submission to the rule of God in her life.

Lisa speaks plainly and openly to the heart of every woman. She uses examples of her life to illustrate the theme that when WE try to control our lives and those around us, we will inevitably mess everything up; but when we submit our control to God in every part of our life, our lives become simpler, fuller, and better. This is a very worthwhile read if you've ever felt out of control, or tried to be in control!

Lisa Bevere is a true Godsend. How marvelous it is to relinquish control over aspects of our lives that we were never meant to handle in the first place. And how maturing is it to realize what we do have control over..our responses...and how that allows us to make the right choices in life. God Bless this woman and her ministry. Trust me, this is not just a book for the Women of God. Everyone should read this!

I love Lisa Bevere books and Out of Control & Loving It is one of my favorites. Why? Because Lisa's ministry allows her to be transparent, which means she speaks from her own personal struggles, and shares how the Lord brought her through. In this book she admits how she tried to be in control, but that in losing control (giving it over to God), she actually gained control. Her writing eases the readers fears, lets them know they aren't alone, and gives them a scriptural and practical perspective that is most helpful. I recommend this book as well as the others she's written.

This book was used by our church at our ladies retreat last year. I am reading it again this year. It will set you free from any burdens and troubles that you are carrying that you don't need to carry. Many times Christians are in control when they just need to let go and allow God to be in control. He knows what He is doing and oh what a relief to finally have a book that teaches us how to let go and let God. I highly recommend this book to every woman out there.

This is such an awesome book. It is also easy reading as far as words, type size and chapters. It is always good to know you are not alone caught up in the craziness of fighting for survival and normalcy in this world today. There is hope, with faith, there is hope!!
