Alisa Childers is the host of the Alisa Childers podcast, blogger and speaker. Her faith started early in life through the example that her parents set for her. Her young love for Jesus led to studying the Bible at an early age. In her early 20’s she became one of the founding members of the Christian singing group “ZOEgirl” which she traveled and performed with for about 7 years. After the group disbanded she faced an unexpected crisis of faith that intellectually challenged her beliefs in a way they had never been challenged before. She cried out to God for help and the journey that He took her on in answer to that prayer has proven to her the historic claims of Christianity are true, “not only experientially and emotionally but intellectually” as well. Now through her website, podcast, blogs and speaking opportunities she helps other believers to know and stand of the solid foundation of God and His unchanging word.
