In 2010, Lisa Shultz and Andrea Costantine published the anthology, Speaking Your Truth: Courageous Stories from Inspiring Women. Their goal with this book and its subsequent volumes and spin offs is to provide a beacon of light, hope, and connection for women as they navigate their lives while overcoming challenges and difficulties along the way. They had 49 contributing authors in Volume One who shared their stories of family matters, love and abuse, faith and spirituality, health and healing, and finding their path.

Lisa Shultz enjoys an entrepreneurial life which includes coaching, writing, and speaking. Through sharing her story and the stories of the contributing authors in the book Speaking Your Truth, she hopes to connect women together who might resonate with the messages they read and so realize they are not alone.
