She has a powerful pro-life testimony that has touched thousands of people around the world – She is alive today because her Chinese mother broke the law and gave birth to her and her sisters in Communist China.

Lisa resides in the Dallas area with her family.

I was born in Communist China, grew up in New Zealand, and moved to America at the age of 18. I now call America home.

As a youth, I was a liberal. I thought government hand-outs were great and government was the answer to all of society's problems! I even voted for the most left-leaning party when I first voted in New Zealand (they promised free college for everyone!).

I became awakened to conservative ideas in college, reading various conservative thinkers on my own. As an immigrant to this country, I saw with my own eyes that America was different. I valued what made America great and special. It surprised me that Americans took so many of their rights and privileges for granted. However, it wasn't until I started reading and learning American history and government that I realized that her greatness was rooted in the ideas that founded this nation - ideas that would be considered conservative today.

But most importantly, I became a Christian at the age of 16 and have sought to live for Jesus ever since. God knows I fail everyday, but his grace is sufficient even in my weakness.
