Alisa was born in the San Fernando Valley, CA to Karen and her husband, pioneer Christian artist, Chuck Girard. While still a young woman in the late 1990s, Alisa and two friends formed the group, ZOEgirl who signed with Sparrow Records in 1999. ZOEgirl went on to become one of the fastest selling debut artists in the label’s history, even winning the New Artists of the Year at the 2002 GMA Dove Awards. After seven years together, the group amicably split and remain friends. Today, Alisa is a wife, mom, an author and speaker and writes a popular apologetics blog for doubting Christians and honest skeptics. Her first book, “Another Gospel? A Lifelong Christian Seeks Truth in Response to Progressive Christianity” was released in October 2020 and describes Alisa’s journey over the last several years as she wrestled with questions that really strike at the heart of what it means to be a Biblical or historic Christian. It has become a best-seller, and her new book is scheduled for release in the Fall of 2022.
