Depth Podcast Episode 12: Countdown to Christmas — Lisa Appelo

Listen now:

Excited to share with you a new episode on my Depth podcast!

Today, I cannot wait for you to hear Lisa Appelo share her powerful testimony of God’s faithfulness in her grief.  Eight years ago, Lisa became a sudden widow and single mom to her 7 children. Finding hope in the middle of these hard circumstances, Lisa now writes and encourages others to find hope and deepen their faith.

In addition, Lisa shares on the podcast about her new advent devotional called *Countdown to Christmas. I love that she uses the pieces of a Nativity set to teach Jesus’ story in a hands-on way. I promise you that you do not want to miss our conversation.

Book Recommendations:

Lisa Appelo is a speaker, writer and Bible teacher who inspires women to deepen their faith in loss and find hope in the hard. She’s a Florida girl born and raised and followed her passion for writing into law, where she worked as a litigator for many years. God had other plans, quickly increasing her tribe, and when she had her fourth child in 7 years, she retired from law and has been home full time with her children since.

Eight years ago, Lisa went to bed happily married to her high school sweetheart and woke up a widow and single mom. As she navigated grief and shepherded her children through their own grief, God reshaped her broken heart. Lisa is passionate about rich Bible study and teaches a weekly ladies Bible class at her home church, First Baptist Church, Jacksonville. She’s a speaker with She Found Joy and has been published at Proverbs 31 Ministries, (in)courage, Risen Motherhood, Jennifer Rothschild and more.

Her days are filled top to bottom with stewarding her precious children, writing, ministry, speaking and running enough to justify lots of dark chocolate. Find her encouragement for faith, grief and hope at and on Instagram @lisaappelo.
