About SOARING into Strength: Love Transcends Pain: A phone call at four o’clock in the morning launched a trifecta of trauma that changed Lisa’s life forever when three experiences with death and illness occurred in her family in just 10 months. When her family’s world imploded, Lisa felt as if she had become irrevocably damaged. Instead, she discovered her calling during a sunrise walk along the beach. Lisa channeled her passion and resilience into a global movement that would inspire millions of people to never give up. Wherever you are within your journey, these stories provide illumination and inspiration as you seek to become the best version of yourself, even in the face of overwhelming obstacles.
