Author Biography

Lisa Phillips, a native of Lawrence, Kansas, met her husband, Ray, a machinist mate in the U.S. Navy in 1986. The following year they were married. Lisa, a passionate supporter of her husband's military service, volunteered for various military family events during the span of her husband's 21 years of service.

Drawing from her love of God's Word and her 18 years as a military wife, Lisa's desire is to encourage current military families by applying the Scriptures to experiences and issues common to the military lifestyle. This is what she has done with her debut book, "Faith Steps for Military Families." Her belief that faith makes a difference contributes to the spiritual well-being necessary to have a strong and resilient military family.

Reviewed by Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite

Faith Steps for Military Families: Spiritual Readiness Through the Psalms of Ascent by author Lisa Nixon Phillips is a fantastic guide for families, military or otherwise. A well organized read in which each chapter focuses on one particular biblical reference in Psalms and applies it to modern day life, this read provides guidance for many who are going through struggles. Author Lisa Nixon Phillips is an experienced military wife, and her guidance coupled with the guidance from the Holy Bible make Faith Steps for Military Families an absolutely wonderful resource.

I very much enjoyed Faith Steps for Military Families: Spiritual Readiness Through the Psalms of Ascent. Author Lisa Nixon Phillips writes with a compassion for her readers that can only come with personal experience in what they are going through. Her writing style is clear, honest and heart felt, and her readers will be able to tell that her passion is helping military families through her Christian faith. Many will find insight and inspiration in her words. If that isn't a hallmark of a wonderful Christian writer, I guess I am not sure what is. Military families dealing with frequent moves, separation due to deployment, and other stresses that are simply part of the life of those living in the military will find special meaning in Lisa Nixon Phillips' words.

Any reader who enjoys books that help them to explore their Christianity, inspirational guides, or works that help them to grow their faith, and especially military families, will love this book. I highly recommend this book, and will certainly look for more from the very promising author, Lisa Nixon Phillips, in the future.

I LOVED reading this book! The way the Author writes is easy to understand and inspiring. There are so many difficulties that we as military families face. This book was a helpful tool that gave me answers with the Bible as a guide.

Thank you, Lisa Nixon Phillips. Faith Steps for Military Families took me deep into God’s Word, revealed its profound relevance for today, and encouraged my heart. Military families, if you’re looking for solid, biblically-based guidance and hope, look no further. The truth held within the psalms Lisa has chosen to explore has the power to change lives.

Bravo for Lisa Nixon Phillips. She has given us a helpful guide to help navigate the difficulties that military families will face during deployment and service from a very credible perspective. Lisa has been a military wife for over 21 years. She's able to reach out through the pages of her writing with her endearing and approachable style as she offers practical advice, charming anecdotal stories, and touchstones of wisdom presented as Key Points throughout the chapters. I see these as small take-away "pearls of knowledge" that the reader can squirrel away for future use. Each chapter is grounded on biblical truth and scripture each one building upon the other to make a solid foundation and for the reader building a confident relationship with the author.
