Lisa is leaning on her faith this holiday season. Since 2017, Lisa has been raising her two granddaughters alone after their mother became incarcerated.
It has not been easy for the now 65-year-old grandmother, as she has had to adjust to caring for her 10- and 11-year-old granddaughters on a fixed income. Nonetheless, Lisa refused to have her granddaughters be taken away after their mother’s incarceration, fearing that she would never see them again.
Raising two growing girls on a fixed income has been a challenge, but Lisa has not given up. Keeping her faith in God, Lisa has overcome obstacles to give her granddaughters a stable household. Although Lisa continues to keep her faith, along with a positive mindset when it comes to raising the girls, she admits that at times it can be very hard. But no matter the circumstances, Lisa believes that everything always works out because of her devotion to God.
When taking care of her granddaughters, Lisa makes sure they always get what they need, not what they want. “Needs come first at all times,” Lisa said.
With Christmas just weeks away, Lisa is asking for help to fulfill some of her granddaughters wants for once. With help from the Empty Stocking Fund, Lisa will be able to do just that.
