About the Book

Trust is the story of a homeschool family in Louisiana that wasn’t ready to choose between homeschooling and high school sports. A lawmaker’s campaign promise over a glass of water led to a three-year struggle with athletic and education associations that lobbied at the state capitol. Prep sports and politics are big in Louisiana, and to disturb the status quo of either is not for the faint of heart. Believing some problems are better solved than accepted thrust Lisa Arceri into a very unfamiliar world of politics and policy-making. The trials and defeats of going through the legislative process are the setting for this family’s experience of God’s sovereignty and faithfulness.

About the Author

Lisa Arceri lives in Metairie, Louisiana, with her husband, Chris, and their three sons: Hozana, Israel, and Justice. She and her husband have homeschooled their sons for more than a dozen years.

Before this story, Lisa had no experience with politics and a limited experience with sports. It was her experiences with God that prepared her to face political opposition. Lisa has found herself in places of trust many times since she trusted Jesus with her life in 1979. She hopes her story will inspire others to trust in the sovereignty and faithfulness of God in their own lives.
