With a unique combination of substance and humor, Lael challenges her audience to live for God’s Kingdom in today’s culture. Her most recent book, Godsight: Renewing the Eyes of Our Hearts, is both a personal memoir and a Biblical study of how God redeems our imagination and grows our vision to see what a treasure he is. She probes how we can respond to God from a heart of delight rather than duty so we can live with great purpose and joy in his Kingdom.

As weekly radio co-host of The Things That Matter Most (Houston/Dallas) Lael interviews guests as diverse as atheist Sam Harris, head of the Human Genome Project, Dr. Francis Collins , and best-selling author John Eldredge about what we believe, why we believe it and where real life can be found.

Lael holds a master’s degree in the history of ideas and has taught about culture and apologetics at secular and Christian schools and colleges. Living with rheumatoid arthritis and as a pastor’s wife has given her a passion to move not just minds, but hearts with a desire to seek God’s Truth, both as precepts and principles and as a person who is honored and delighted by our affection for him.

Lael’s first book, Worldproofing Your Kids, helps parents understand a Christian worldview and pass it on their kids. It has been featured in Focus on the Family and World magazines. Her second book, Pilgrim’s Progress Today is a page-burning retelling of Bunyan’s classic, tracking a contemporary pilgrim’s journey through our postmodern cultural landscape. Lael has appeared on Family Life Today with Dennis Rainey, HomeLife, Janet Parshall’s America and many other national radio and TV programs.

Lael and her husband, Jack, make their home among the azaleas and dogwoods of the northwest Houston area and are delighted when their grown son, Zach, pops in for a visit. She enjoys working with her church’s worship planning team and watching and discussing movies with fellow “Flick Chics” over dinner.
