Lisa Chan- True Beauty Films Review and Giveaway

Are You Chasing After the One Thing That Matters Most?

 We are all chasing after something.
Every single one of us.
It could be a number of things...


The question is, are we chasing after The One thing that matters most?

 Are we chasing after Jesus? Are we allowing ourselves time to sit at His feet? In the quiet hours before dawn? Hushed. Subdued. Submissive. Free from all distraction. In intimate stillness? Or are we passing Him by? Has Jesus merely become yet another item to check off on our unending "To Do" list? These are the questions Lisa Chan addresses in the first film of her True Beauty series, entitled, 'Be Still.' 

"There's plenty of people that would say, 'If Jesus literally walked through my door, I would know to sit there and listen to Him.' But we have access to the same Jesus, every day, and why don't we choose to sit at His feet?"
 -Lisa Chan

 Friends, I am convinced that the secret to knowing God... to hearing His voice, to seeing Him move in power. The secret to knowing what is on His heart- what is on His mind- what He is most passionate about- is being still. And Lisa illustrates this concept beautifully and confidently in her film.
 I was challenged, convicted, encouraged, and inspired by Lisa's teaching and it is my prayer that you will be too. So much so, that I am offering to you-my readers- a copy of Lisa's film because I believe that it needs to be placed in the hands of every woman who desires more of Jesus. 

If you would like to purchase a copy of 'Be Still' to give to a friend or family member, or even to use as a small group study at your church, be sure to visit

Be Still
New film helps women who are caught up in the busyness of life

Grand Rapids, Mich., June 25, 2012—Every woman knows the feeling. Regardless of her age, her income, or her family situation, women today are facing the challenges of a busy life and the stress that comes with it. Obligations to children, husband, job, church, friends, committees, and the pressures of everyday life have created a spiritual crisis for women. Because in their efforts to be everything to everyone, women have forgotten the ONE who really should be their everything.

Lisa Chan believes that in our quest to do it all, women are missing God. In the first film of her new series, True Beauty: Finding Your Identity in Jesus (David C Cook/Flannel, September 2012), Chan focuses on what it means to Be Still.  Be Still addresses the issues that confront women when they forget to spend time with Jesus—something that, like most women, Chan struggled with herself.

As a mother of five children, co-founder of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, California, and wife of best-selling author and pastor Francis Chan, Lisa knows firsthand what it means to be overwhelmed, overcommitted, and out of time.  It was an unplanned, extended time alone with God that fueled her desire to encourage every woman to see the beauty of coming before the Lord in stillness. She has seen firsthand that women in the church are suffering from depression, anxiety, and stress at alarming rates—and recognizes that women need to make the choice to find hope and healing and truth from God's presence and through His Word.

Be Still, which weaves Lisa’s teaching with the story of Susan, an amazing woman who found that being still with God was what she needed in order to overcome her struggle with a broken marriage, is intended to challenge women who are struggling and help them to find power and strength in just being quiet and listening. With this film, Chan comes alongside women in their walk with the Lord to give them the tools they need to be the person God intends them to be. True Beauty: Be Still is foundational and can be life-changing as women are convicted to take stock of their own reasons for not spending time with Jesus.

Be Still is a personal glimpse into Lisa’s own life, one that any woman will be able to relate to. It is the fact that she is coming from such an identifiable place, provides practical advice, and shares her own challenges with being still that makes this film such a valuable means of communicating to all women.

Lisa Chan is a mother of five and co-founder (with her husband, Francis) of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, California. An accomplished singer, Lisa has recorded three albums, including Endless Beauty. Lisa lives with her family in San Francisco where they are doing inner-city ministry as a family.
