Ever since I was a young girl, I’ve dreamed of being someone great, and leaving a mark on the world. All grown “older” now, I’ve come to realize the only mark worth leaving is sharing the mark of the cross and what Jesus did on it.

Lisa Quintana, M.A.

Growing up in Southern California, everyone wanted to be a rock star, actor or model. I wanted to be all three! I decided on a more practical route and became a radio broadcast journalist, only to discover reporting on bad news all day, week after week, year after year, was not how I wanted to spend the rest of my life. So, I did what all former reporters do… became a P.R. person (public relations). That career lasted until I had my first child. I quit my job to stay home and raise my baby girl. Then I had a son, and stayed home longer. Finally, realizing that I had stayed home long enough to be less competitive in the marketplace, I went back to school to pursue my deepest passion – God. Now I am here, blogging, and sharing what I’ve learned with you about the Christian faith.

I was drawn to apologetics (an area of theology based on the truths of Christianity) by a circuitous route. I have had plenty of skeptics in my family. So, when I became a Christian at 25 years old, they thought I had joined a cult! 30 years later, I hope they see that differently. Their questions eventually drove me to learning why Christianity is evidentially true.

After a long journey of trying to figure out my place in life, I’ve come up with more questions than answers, but the answers I’ve found are intriguing! Journey with me in the quest to discover more about this wild ride called life, learning to love God with all our hearts, all our souls, and all our MINDS: to Think Divinely!
