Doug spent the rest of the day sitting in his car, alone in prayer. Finally, he called Lisa to tell her that he was on his way home and he wanted a family meeting and communion. Emotionally exhausted and noses still running from crying, Lisa, her mom, and Ashley gathered in the family room as Doug told them about his time with God.
"God did not do this to meand if He did not do this to me, then it doesnt belong to me!" he told them emphatically. It was just what they need to hear.
God Did Not Do This to Me is Lisas story of the familys trials and triumphs through a cancer diagnosis. Putting on the armor of God, Doug was determined to turn his battle with cancer into an intercession for the country, even joking that the chemotherapy treatments made him resemble a bald eagle.
By the end of the year, Dougs cancer was in remission.
"We know that the Great Physician heard the numerous prayers of our friends and spiritual family from all over the world, and blessed us all with a testimony of His healing power," Lisa says. "We are forever changed through this experience. He has expanded my heart of compassion, taught me to pour out more grace, to be an even bigger giver, and to appreciate the little things all the more."
Lisa worked in the secular radio and music entertainment industry for seventeen years, becoming the first female program director of a top-40 station in a major market in the United States. Later, she became the vice president of programming and promotions of a radio group. Lisa has received numerous awards, including gold and platinum records for her contribution to the success of many highly recognizable recording artists and entertainers.
She homeschooled her daughter, Ashley, who is now enrolled in dual programs at a local community college and working on the release of her second EP.
Lisa travels with Doug as they minister to many around the globe, ranging from those of the persecuted church to those suffering in the aftermath of human tragedy, such as the Haitian earthquake, the tsunami in Japan, and Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. Lisa enjoys opportunities where she has been able to interpret for her husband as they minister throughout Central and South America. She and her husband are also regular guests on various television programs that air throughout the world.
Lisa has a heart for the less fortunate, widows, and orphans. She has served on various boards and has traveled to over thirty-four nations.
The Stringers live in the greater Houston area.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a mother, a wife to an amazing kingdom warrior, and a caregiver to my elderly mom who lives with us. I have traveled to over 34 nations sharing God's love and have seen and heard amazing testimonies of His goodness throughout the world. I love serving others, especially orphans and widows.
What was your motivation behind this project? Not a week would go by that someone didn't ask me to pray for a loved one or friend that had been diagnosed with cancer or was walking through challenging times. I was asked how we made, was there a change in diet and so much more. I felt a tug from God to share my story and was asked by many to keep sharing and encouraging others. I want this book to be a blessing to everyone that reads it. For some, they may receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, for others, encouragement, hope, faith, and ultimately a deeper trust in God no matter what they are walking through.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I want people to know that God is real and that in the midst of whatever they or a loved one is going through, God is with them.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I relived many emotions as I sat at the computer and typed away. God reminded me of His faithfulness, that I will never understand all things and that I don't have to. I recognized the goodness of God in a fresh way. I am inspired to tell the story of hope, prayer, intimacy with God, love, family, communion, and victory, no matter what the outcome is.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My husband, Doug Stringer. He is a deep well of wisdom and has authored many books. The bible is a book I read over and over and over.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: No matter what the circumstance is, never lose hope. There are tough moments in life, but with God, victory is yours.
