Enliven is about abiding and overflowing. We rest and learn from Jesus, and our words overflow into heart transformation that engulfs and changes the world around us. Our lives are like bursting fruit, spreading the joy and delight of the Lord onto others. Enliven Devotionals is a conduit of that outpour—a place where flavors flow together and people can “taste and see that God is good”(Psalm 34.8). Together we can be one voice, proclaiming the goodness of God to a world desperate to know Him and to be known by Him.
“I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing.” – John 15.11 (AMPC).

Alisa loves deep simplicity. She is home most days, but if you do see her out and about, you may actually be face-to-face with her extroverted identical twin sister. More than anything, Alisa adores being a wife to her high school sweetheart, mother to her three awesome children and daughter of the Most High King. After hours of writing at her computer, Alisa cannot wait to workout in her garage gym. When the day’s work is finally done, she listens to smooth jazz and gets creative in the kitchen. Alisa writes across genres, including her four favorite topics—faith, family, fitness and fiction. You can find Alisa’s books and devotionals on Amazon and read what the Holy Spirit’s been teaching her at her blog, www.alisahopewagner.com.
Holly loves being the wife of Chris (for 27 years!) and mom to Noah (20), Kylie (18), Tabor (15) and Sydney (11). God has gifted Holly with a love of all things creative — from painting and wall-papering to scrapbooking and design work — as well as a love for all people. Recently, she has laid down her web designing cap for her writer’s pen, which is her favorite form of art, especially communicating the love and work of Jesus in a way that reaches across all divides. She serves weekly at a local, federal, women’s prison, as one of a team of three, teaching a faith-based parenting class. It is her highest joy, seeing these women “get it”– Jesus loves me, yes even me! She carries the stories of people in her heart and she prays for them, even many years later, anticipating the day she will meet them again to hear the great things God has done in their lives. She lives to tell, in every season, God is faithful!
