The Christian romance genre may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but its popular with single readers hoping that God will come through for them! And, in my experience He does in the most unexpected ways. This is something Christian romance writer, Lisa Labon has discovered in her own life and her new trilogy, Legacy of Love, builds on her personal journey of hopelessness and heartache to lasting joy and happiness.
The first time I heard of Lisa, I was greatly moved by her testimony of overcoming heartache and loss… She was sharing on GOD TV’s MissionsWeek about how God had transformed her life following the heartbreak of the loss of her son. She was known as Lisa Skone then, and I was amazed at the way the Lord had intervened in her life with split second timing.
Lisa was struggling with suicidal thoughts at the time, and God used Wendy Alec to deliver a word of knowledge that would be life-transforming. “There is lady watching that doesn’t want to be here on earth anymore’, Wendy said, but God says He has a plan and a purpose for your life and thousands will know your story…”
Lisa knew God was speaking directly to her. She was ready to take her life and the suicidal thoughts suddenly disappeared. She had started writing a book about her life but had put on the backburner, and this was the ‘ignition key’ that would set a chain of events in motion that would establish Lisa as a popular author / Christian romance writer.
Today she is the mastermind behind the Trilogy of Love trilogy comprising of ‘In the Blink of an Eye, Paving the Way and Freedom in Chains. Published by Open Scroll Publications, the first two books have received 5* reviews on Amazon and Lisa is currently writing the third for release in 2022.
I met Lisa in person when she visited Exeter to attend a Revival Week. I remember her showing us the initial manuscripts. As a published author I encouraged her to follow her dream and press into this prophetic word. That was several years ago, and I wondered how things had progressed…
Today Lisa has a publisher, website, two published books and a growing fan club or readers who love her Christian romance novels and can’t wait for the next instalment! It’s amazing how God can speak to us in our lowest moment and give us a vision of the future that is greater than we could ever imagine. Thankfully He doesn’t overwhelm us all at once, but gives us a seed that grows and grows beyond our wildest dreams. Also, that He can take our pain and turn it into a therapeutic, creative process that will ultimately comfort others dealing with similar challenges.
I love hearing testimonies of how people have overcome in life, but they are even more powerful when you discover the end results of that conversion years later. God has made Lisa Labon to be fruitful for His Kingdom. She has a unique ability to draw readers who don’t know God into an intriguing story and share spiritual truths with them in a non-threatening but gripping way.
The Legacy of Love trilogy – a great Christian romance
Christian romance novels may not be for you, but I encourage you to get copies of Lisa’s books and share them with unsaved friends or family that will love the story of Danielle and Panos on an idyllic Greek island. I read the first book on Kindle and as everyone says, you can’t put it down.”
I think In The Blink of an Eye has great appeal especially for women. However it will resonate with anybody who has been in a broken relationship, that there is hope for happiness, even if it seems impossible.
I received the second book, Paving the Way in the post and was amazed at how thick it is, all 500+ pages. It has a very striking cover that immediately draws you into the story. I think Open Scroll have done a brilliant job with the design and editing of the original manuscript and given the story widespread appeal.
There is much more to the story than romance of course and it will bring healing into the lives of people who have had a relational break up or think true love is impossible. Each book has its fair share of golden spiritual nuggets that will delight believers and spur non-believers on to discover more of the spiritual world we live in. We all know life is full of enemy pitfalls and traps, and how we can look to God to overcome these and deliver us. Many more need to hear this crucial message.
For me these books from Lisa Labon capture a story of great hope in the middle of despair, unimaginable grief and heartbreak. She discovered a way to find new meaning and significance in life and to share her passion for love, life and romance in a way that will nudge many into God’s Kingdom. Let’s support her in this creative endeavour.
