Breakaway: Kay Rizzo
Girls can’t be preachers! Or so six-year-old Kay was told. If she couldn’t be a preacher, the child decided to become a teacher. “Teachers talk almost as much as preachers,” she reasoned. For Kay, God’s plan included marriage and motherhood, classroom teaching, and the writing her first book. The book paved the way to the pulpit. Kay reminds, “Only God knows what’s around the next bend in your life. Never sell Him short.”
Chaplain Terry talks to writer, speaker and storyteller, Kay Rizzo whose practical and uplifting messages burst with joy and praise. She is in demand at retreats, conferences and convocations throughout the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and Australia. Her love for travel and adventure is evident in her motto, “Send ticket; will travel.” A graduate of CLASS (Christian Leaders and Speaker’s Seminars, Inc.), she served on their West Coast teaching staff for ten years.
Since publishing her first book, Kay has authored 60 more and 1000+ articles. A biography I WILL DIE FREE remained on the publisher’s bestseller list for 10 years and has recently been re-released. Rebecca’s Crossing, volume eight of her family saga, the Serenity Inn Series, was released in 2011.
New and exciting discoveries await Kay, as she tests the power of e-booking on the Internet and blogging on her web site. “I never imagined blogging could be so much fun,” she quips.
Kay resides with her husband and business partner, Richard, in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Her greatest riches include her hubby of 40+ years; her two daughters, two sons-in law, two grandsons and a cat named Pepsi.

Get Past Whatever’s Holding You Back
How to get past whatever’s holding you back—and start living a whole new story
We all have holes in our lives—those things we lament about ourselves. Those things we allow to define us in ways we don’t like. Those things that keep us from living the life God wants for us.
But what if you discovered that the holes in your life are really the things that will ultimately make you . . . well, whole?
Author and communicator Lisa Whittle knows this all too well. When her world was rocked to the core in a very public way, her faith and whole reason for living were challenged like never before. In that moment, Lisa was confronted by the holes in her spiritual life. And what she learned not only changed her life, but could bring great possibilities to yours.
In Whole, Lisa calls you to take an honest look at your holes, discover how to fill them with God’s presence, and get to a real and vibrant place of wholeness instead. In her trademark bold, compassionate, and relatable voice, Lisa takes you on a transformational journey of understanding who you really are . . . and what you were born to be and do.
Lisa Whittle has an extensive background in the church, from her experiences as a lifelong pastor’s daughter to serving in nonprofit ministry and planting a church with her husband. Her education includes master’s work in marriage and family counseling, which has provided a backdrop for her various leadership positions within both church and parachurch organizations. Lisa’s core passion is to boldly inspire the church to represent Jesus well.
