Ms. Lisa (Owner)

Lisa Newman's life has been dedicated to the love, nurturing, and development of children. Growing up in a broken home gave her a strong desire to help children from all walks of life. She believes children are life's greatest blessing to those who choose to parent! Miss Lisa started teaching Sunday School at age 19, and has since spent 6 years as a home-licensed childcare provider, has fostered 13 children over the course of 5 years, and has been blessed to parent 6 children: one biological child (Kayli), two step-children (Stephan and Emma), and three adopted children (Shaina, and Jaiden and Deven). Miss Lisa was blessed to marry her soul mate in 2001, and they have walked through many difficult times together hand-in-hand. They have overcome the obstacles of the blended family and continue to stand strong. They believe it is the grace of God that has brought them this far and they know that he will continue to walk with them. They are committed to this life of helping children together. The children all adore "Mr. B," a soft spoken, kind, and gentle man. He always has a smile on his face and a pat on the head for the children.
