Lisa Weyerhaeuser
“Life On Earth”

You would expect someone who writes songs about “Life On Earth” to be familiar with many different facets of living. And Lisa Weyerhaeuser (pronounced “Warehouser”) certainly fits the bill. A songwriter; singer; worship leader; a professional counselor; a Professor of Adolescent Psychology with Master Degrees in both Religion and Counseling Psychology; a mother of three young boys; and a pastor’s wife, Lisa has taken a multitude of life experiences – both good and bad – combined it all with a fresh, acoustic folk music sound, and made Life On Earth, well…livable…and relevant…and real.

“These songs are about the stuff of life,” says Lisa. “We all go through things that test our character and our faith. There are songs on this CD where I am grieving for a lost friend, musing about being a mom, complaining about getting older, and talking about relationships. I’ve learned that every day we have treasures within our grasp. The key is to make ourselves accessible to those things and learn to truly embrace life and make an impact on the people around us.”

With nuances of the folk rock of Aimee Mann, the acoustic renderings of Michael Card, and the gentle, whispy vocals of Allison Krauss, Lisa has a unique sound all her own. With the backdrop of an Americana style of acoustic alternative folk, Lisa’s voice conveys raw emotion, allowing the listener to hear all her smiles --and frowns-- as she sings. From the wishful “Oh For A Day” to the humorous “Politically Correct” to the simple praise of “Your Love Is Greater,” Lisa offers tunes that surprise the listener with their simplicity and profoundness, all at once.

Life On Earth is Lisa’s fourth solo recording, but her first national release with Gambit Music Group and Bayside Entertainment Distribution. She wrote 11 of the 12 tunes, adding Larry Norman’s “UFO” as a bonus track “just for fun.” Lisa and her band have performed for numerous festivals including Cornerstone, LifeFest, the Joyful Noise Music Festival, Fisherman’s Fest, as well as opened for artists such as Phil Keaggy, Larry Norman, and Whitecross, among others. She has been a youth camp favorite for many years, earning the loving nickname of La-La Lisa by the many kids that she has touched along the way.

Lisa has been a professor of Adolescent Psychology at Trinity International University near her home in Illinois. She has also worked as a counselor to her community as well as her church, where she has been in leadership and her husband has served as pastor for over 20 years.

Indeed, it is her depth of knowledge of both the spiritual and mental challenges that people face that makes her especially appealing in concert settings. Mixing music with her expertise on relational matters, Lisa truly comforts and encourages those she comes in contact with, opening up her own soul to her audiences and being honest and vulnerable about her own failings and shortcomings.

“I went through a season of depression in my own life,” says Lisa, “and it really led me down the path of searching for answers. Like me, many people are reacting to situations in their present lives based on the hurts and pains of childhood that they never tapped into and dealt with. I know, for me, my healing began when I started reaching outside myself to other people – getting my mind off of me – and focusing on others. I learned that my everyday encounters with the people in my life can glorify God in a powerful way.”

Through her counseling experiences, Lisa has learned a very important lesson about life on earth. “All truth is God’s truth,” Lisa says assuredly. “Whether in psychology or history or science or even in music, you can glean truth from anything if you measure it by the Word of God. Truth can be found, even when the messenger is not necessarily a Christian.”

Lisa hopes her Life On Earth CD along with her interactive website,, will become a point of contact for people to become more aware of God and less aware of their everyday troubles. “I think it’s a challenge for all of us to wake up each day with a God-centered focus rather than a circumstance-centered focus. Most of the time, we try to use God as a tool to make our circumstances better. But the truth is, if we put God first and recognize Him as the giver and sustainer of life, we can then allow our circumstances to become a means to bring us closer to Him.

“When it comes down to it, life on earth is about the relationships we have. And our number one relationship is with God. Nurture that, and then we can truly learn to love and edify everyone else in our lives.”
