Laughter, Tears, Life

LaughterMy name is Lisa Olinda and I admit I am addicted to technology. Ever since I did a tour in my senior year of high school at the IBM facility in Greenville, South Carolina I have loved technology. Until 1988, I worked for various industries ranging from waste management to the banking industry where I worked in the systems department.

When my oldest was born my husband and I decided I would stay at home with our family. Over the next 20 years, I raised children, helped in ministry areas in our local church, helped establish a non-profit food ministry and helped many missionaries around the globe with ministry needs. I also help several start-up brick and mortar businesses get established.

During this time, my love of technology remained constant. In 2007, I decided to support my habit. In order to continue helping ministries, I needed to fund the technology needed.

In 2007, I took my business, Olinda Services, online. With this business, I help international companies with operations management and executive assistance. I also continue to minister to missionaries around the globe.

Over the years, I have cultivated a love of teaching. I believe this started because of my love of learning. I started working with the nursery children and eventually worked my way up to adults. For the past two years, I have been doing regular speaking engagement and look forward to cultivating more speaking opportunities in the future.

This blog is basically about the randomness of my life. I am still waiting to figure out what I will be when I grow up. You will see a lot about my family. Music is a vibrant and vital part of my life. You will hear about my children’s journey as they branch out literally all over the globe. You will also see snippets of lessons I do for my local church and their summer series.

Through this blog, you will see my hair shorter, longer, straight and curly. You will see me as I strive to keep a sense of humor about life changes, weight changes and growing older. Be encouraged and most importantly interact.

I look forward to hearing from you!
