Only 1% of books ever sell over 100,000. Yet Lysa’s last four books have done that. Lysa TerKeurst is the New York Times bestselling author of Made to Crave and Unglued as well as 14 other titles. As president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, Lysa and her team saw over 4,000 women make a personal commitment to Jesus this year. They reach nearly 700,000 women daily through their online devotion, Encouragement for Today and thousands more through the Proverbs 31 radio program playing on 1,200 radio outlets daily. In addition to speaking at Catalyst and Women of Faith, she accepts a limited number of speaking engagements at churches where she is passionate about helping women connect the messy parts of life with the miraculous hope of God. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, Art, their five kids, three dogs and a mouse that refuses to leave her kitchen. Lysa blogs at www.LysaTerKeurst.com.
