Travels from New York City, New York

Lisa Mladinich is a Catholic life coach helping professional and creative women get unstuck, in order to live with more impact and more joy, for God’s greater glory. Lisa is also a best-selling author, conference speaker, and the host of the Homeschooling Saints Podcast, sponsored by Homeschool Connections, where she teaches courses for teens on authentic beauty. 

A New York City actress for many years, Lisa's life was once weighed down by bitter suffering and the belief that God no longer answered her prayers. Infertility, unhealed wounds from an assault in her twenties, and the failure of her career brought her almost to the breaking point. But in 1992, the rediscovery of the Holy Rosary led to her dramatic re-version to the Catholic faith and sparked a complete transformation of her life. In the Church, she found hope, healing, and an incredible renewal of joy and creativity. She also became a mom--her lifelong dream. Now a well-known author and catechist, Lisa loves to entertain her audiences through true stories of love and faith. She speaks movingly about authentic beauty, Marian spirituality, love of Jesus in the Eucharist, holy friendships, the healing power of confession, finding our way in the spiritual life, and the truths of the Catholic Church that completely restored her faith and set her heart on fire for Jesus Christ.

Lisa has appeared on EWTN TV's Women of Grace, Sunday Night Prime, BookMark, and Catholic Mom's Café,  as well as CatholicTV's This is the Day, EWTN's the Son Rise Morning Show, Sirius XM's The Jennifer Fulwiler Show, Busted Halo, and many other Catholic television and radio programs. She is a regular contributor to Relevant Radio's Morning Air with John Harper and On Call with Wendy Wiese, she writes for CATECHIST magazine, and is the author of  the best-selling, award-winning book, True Radiance: Finding Grace in the Second Half of Life (Servant Books) and the Be An Amazing Catechist booklets (Our Sunday Visitor). Her newest book is a day-by-day school-year devotional that catechizes both adults and children, called Heads Bowed: Prayers for Catholic School Days (Liguori Publications). Lisa is also a contributor to two best-selling devotionals from Ave Maria Press: The Catholic Moms Prayer Companion and Word by Word: Slowing Down With the Hail Mary. She is very proud to be an instructor for Homeschool Connections Online, where she teaches original courses on authentic beauty, for tween and teen girls.

Lisa delights in sharing the beauty, truth, and power of the Catholic faith and is open to new themes for your retreat, conference, or parish event.
