Lysa TerKeurst's Bio:
Lysa TerKeurst is a wife, the mother of five blessings named Jackson, Mark, Hope, Ashley, and Brooke, and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries. She is the co-host of the ministry’s national radio program which airs daily on over 950 radio stations across the nation and abroad.

TerKeurst is the award-winning author of several books, including Radically Obedient, Radically Blessed and A Woman’s Secret to a Balanced Life,which she co- authored with Sharon Jaynes (Harvest House); Leading Women to the Heart of God, Who Holds the Key to Your Heart?, Capture His Heart, and Capture Her Heart (Focus on the Family with Moody); Living Life on Purpose and The Sweetest Story Ever Told (Moody).

In her newest book, What Happens When Women Walk in Faith, TerKeurst challenges women to change like never before. Using solid biblical teaching and captivating stories, TerKeurst outlines five phases of faith every woman will experience when she seeks to walk closer to God and venture toward the dreams He has put on her heart. In the first phase, “leaving,” she must leave the old behind in order to move to a deeper level of faith. In the “famine” stage, she moves out of her comfort zone and learns to depend on God. In the “believing” phase, she begins to believe in Him in a way that becomes too real to deny. In the “death” phase, she comes to the end of her ability to make things happen, which is the only way to a new life with Him. Finally, in the “resurrection” phase, God makes her dreams come true, but she now understands that the real joy isn’t in the dream being fulfilled but about the richer faith acquired along the way.

A certified CLASS speaker, TerKeurst speaks from coast to coast at women’s conferences, banquets, and retreats. She and her husband, Art, also conduct marriage seminars for both men and women. Often she shares personal anecdotes about walking in faith, including the amazing morning she rushed her three homeschooled daughters to a nearby church to hear a Liberian choir sing, only to discover that God was calling her to adopt two boys from Africa.

TerKeurst has been interviewed on The 700 Club, Moody’sMidday Connection, and by Woman’s Day Magazine. She has been a guest on Dr. Dobson’sFocus on the Family radio broadcast and was the keynote for their “Renewing the Heart” women’s leadership conference. She is also one of the featured speakers for the “Extraordinary Women Arena Conferences.”
