About the Author

Lisa Church suffered a miscarriage during her first pregnancy, and the experience changed her life. After three months of planning and loving her unborn baby, her hopes for a family abruptly ended. She was astounded to learn that four of her closest friends had also endured pregnancy loss, and each of them had carried this burden in silence.

After learning that nearly 1 million couples each year suffer miscarriage in the U.S. alone, Lisa decided to do something. She shares her experience, along with her four friends, in the book Hope is Like the Sun. The book focuses on the real feelings and individual experiences of grief and gives practical and simple advice on coping with the pain and moving toward healing. 

After writing the book, Lisa decided to apply her years of Corporate Support experience in a new direction. She launched HopeXchange, a website that offers information, support, a monthly newsletter, resources and encouragement to anyone impacted by miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death.

 Lisa did go on to have a healthy daughter, and she also enjoys her college-aged stepdaughter. She and her family live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. She loves the beach, skiing, graphic arts, decorating and spending time with her family. You can contact Lisa by emailing her at:  Lisa@HopeXchange.com.
