Welcome my fellow sojourners!

My name is Lisa. I was born in China, grew up in New Zealand, and moved to America when I was 18. America is now my home.

I began writing online about 3 years ago, sharing the story of my choosing life for my son, Zeke, who was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. I also shared my mother's story - I am alive today because my Chinese mother broke the law and gave birth to me. My parents lived through the communist revolution in China. In a country where the one-child policy forced women who had more than one child to abort their children, my brave mother risked her life to protect me and my sisters from the government. I owe my very life to my parents.

About 2 years ago, I realized I needed to get my message and my ideas on video to reach more people. I had no idea that my content would connect with so many people! I am so grateful for every one of you who has watched, liked, or shared any of my previous videos. I have spoken about different topics like abortion, Planned Parenthood, America's greatness, elections, transgenderism, and feminism.

Aside from my pro-life convictions, I have strong conservative convictions, many born out of my life experiences. 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, my convictions have grown out of my Christian faith. 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.

In a nutshell, that is why I do what I do.

I have a bachelor’s degree in philosophy, so this is like a philosophy major’s dream come true. (unless of course, I end up starving…)

With the support from this page, I want to create high-quality video and written content to explore, explain, and spread political and philosophical ideas that are true and good. Also, to dismantle lies and ideas that are truly harmful and insidious to our society. While I have been doing this on the side, my desire is for this to grow into something that I could do on a much more consistent basis. Support from this page will also go towards the maintenance and upgrade of my home studio and equipment.

Thank you for joining me on this journey!
