Whatever happens, I don’t mind.

Welcome to my brand new website! I’m happy you are here.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a website. For those of you who know me, I began blogging/writing in December 2004 when I lived in Wisconsin. I called my website “Gorgeous for God” as a reminder to myself to live in God and to put God first in everything.

I wrote almost every single day until around January 2010 when I felt it was time to take a break, or at least slow down to allow something new to emerge.

Then my website got hacked in the summer of 2010 and disappeared forever. I wasn’t even upset. It was simply a new moment. I had been practicing A Course in Miracles for almost 20 years at that point and so I knew “there are no accidents.”

So after the initial shock of losing of losing almost 5 years worth of writing, I happily let it go.

My motto in life (my recipe for happiness) is:
“Whatever happens, I don’t mind.”

It used to be that my life was one major disappointment after major disappointment. I was constantly wishing things were different, that people acted kinder or more sane.

And one day … the aha moment! I realized: Nothing needs to change because what I think I see outside of me is nothing more than images from my own mind. I’m looking at a mirror reflection of myself – always! – and it’s already over.

Suddenly life was “just happening.” It wasn’t even happening to me. It was simply happening and I was along for the ride. This is freedom.

I didn’t want to miss a second of its beauty and grandeur, even while things shifted and fell apart.

I started to realize: WHATEVER HAPPENS, I DON’T MIND.

Life took me in a new direction. I moved back to New Hampshire to live with my dad and to be near my mom and sisters. I fell in love with Bill Free in March 2011, who I met in Boston at my friend Vicki Poppe’s house. We moved to Maine near the ocean, then two years later, Bill and I got married.

In 2012, we started a non-profit organization called the Teachers of God Foundation based on an idea that it would be fun to have a community to inspires, encourages and supports people to go through the transformation from fear to love, through using the principles of A Course in Miracles. We started with an idea and no money, and it has grown over the years to an amazing community and 5 staff members and volunteers. I’m very grateful and blown-away by the changes that have occurred.

For the past 4 years, my love, focus and energy has gone towards the Teachers of God Foundation – first with the online 40-Day Program, then Living in Purpose, our 6-Month Mastery Program for Miracle-Minded Thinking and finally to a one-year online program for the workbook lessons A Course in Miracles.

And that brings me to now. A few months ago – in August 2015 while on a cruise to Alaska – I started to feel that it was time to start writing again, in the personal intimate style that I love so much.

So I hired a web guy and he built me this beautiful website.

This is my very first blog post. I have no idea what sort of things I will write going forward but I’m happy to be surprised and to find out.

I’m especially thrilled that you are here. Thank you!

Mostly I want this to be a place of encouragement, joy and inspiration.

This is my new beginning and I encourage you to join me in your own new beginning … whatever that may be for you.

SO WELCOME!

    I lately finished your 40 day program. Thank you for being here. As you remind us, I remind you, I am grateful for you and I appreciate you. A couple of things happened this week. First, I read a sign yesterday that said, God, if I am not intended to go through this door, please close it. Nail it shut. Put a refrigerator in front of it, that I cannot get at it should I change my mind. Well, I laughed, but Ive been antsy about my work, and thought well, if this is what the good Lord intends or if this is whst the day holds, then so be it … Im okay with whatever happens … Second, Ive been writing a bit off and on over the years. People say, oh, you really do have a waywith words, sooo I sent off a wee article to a nrwspaper …today, I am published. Im okay with this too, lol. With the Mothers Day issue of a smaller general interest rag, I will be published twice. Yes, the good Lord is opening a new door, and Im happily going where he leads … writing or otherwise. I will enjoy reading your inspirations Love to you, Lida Natoli. Love to you.

  58. Kathleen Flett says:

  61. Mary says:

    Thank you Lisa for all you provide. I’ve been your student of the 40 day program and now, currently, the 365 guide. Your clarity and insight, along with your communication style, have helped me tremendously as a new student of the Course. Your new website is gorgeous, and upon reading over it, I realized I haven’t purchased your book! So I look forward to doing so, and to follow your newsletter. With much love and gratitude, Mary
