Tara talks with artist and storyteller Lisa Kaufer from Muddy Fork about how her love of creating feeds her soul. Tara also breaks down a Jesus story about breakfast on a beach. Stick around to see just what you might be peckish for as she asks the question, " What feeds your soul?"
About our guest:
Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Lisa ventured to the beautiful Southwest to attend the University of Arizona, where she earned degrees in Communication and Spanish. She has always felt called to help people grow in their personal journey and she has responded to this call by planning large-scale conferences, tutoring students with dyslexia, and serving in faith formation ministry with all ages. Lisa delights in cultivating play-filled spaces for community and conversation through her leadership at art workshops and spiritual retreats. This is also evident in her long-standing relationship with Montreat Youth Conference and her recent work designing new forms of ministry with Princeton Theological Seminary's Log College Project. It's also hard to miss the giant Turquoise Table in her front yard!
Lisa lives in West Chester, Ohio with her husband, three children, and two Sheepadoodles. She currently serves as Director of Faith Formation at First Presbyterian Church, Middletown. In 2020, Lisa launched The Muddy Fork as a personal outlet for creative expressions and shared stories.
