Lisa Luby Ryan was abused and broken from finding her identity in the love of men. But after years of hurt, she found healing in a greater form of love. She now shares this love with audiences who find redemption and restoration in her own story.
Abused and neglected, the only thing Lisa Luby Ryan had to do was watch her mother sneak men in and out of their home. With no knowledge of what a wholesome, Christ-centered relationship looked like, Lisa began searching for acceptance in men. After years of shallow relationships filling the void left from her childhood, Lisa met a man that she believed would finally change things. But she soon discovered secrets from her past had wounded her deeply. It wasn’t until she confessed the reality of affairs, divorce and three abortions with a trusted mentor that she could finally find the strength to let God heal her heart. It was this moment of transparency which prompted Lisa to seek restoration in the incomparable love of Christ.
Lisa is now married to a man who loves her and her children but most importantly loves the Lord. She uses her powerful story to reach out to women who have been affected by abortion, divorce or abuse and to proclaim that no past is too big for God to handle.
