Lisa Mackie grew up in Southern California and worked in corporate America there most of her career. She held various management positions at Nissan North America and was part of the corporate relocation from Los Angeles to Nashville, Tennessee in 2006. Lisa met the true love of her life Tim in 2009, they married in 2011, and Lisa moved to Tim’s farm in Sparta, Tennessee where they call home. Surprising many, Lisa left corporate America in 2012 to raise goats, drive a tractor and plant a vegetable garden! Lisa and Tim enjoy kayaking, hiking, planning trips and traveling. They have a beautifully blended family of five children with their spouses/mates and eight grandchildren and love this season of Granny and Pops.
In 2013 Lisa began serving at the local pregnancy resource center where she eventually became a client advocate. In 2014 she attended a Deeper Still retreat in Knoxville, Tennessee that brought profound life changes. This led to the startup of Deeper Still Upper Cumberland in 2016 where Lisa is the Executive Director. She loves meeting new people, hearing about their life journey, and enjoys being an encourager to others. The Upper Cumberland Chapter is located in a beautiful and convenient country location between Knoxville and Nashville, Tennessee.
We hold our retreats in a very picturesque, peaceful setting. From the open spaces to the green grass and rolling hills it sets the stage for a most incredible weekend. This location helps you get away from the responsibilities of everyday life and focus on receiving the healing of the Lord, while allowing others to serve you and meet your needs.
Our team has been hand-selected and trained. You will be immersed in support and love, as we walk alongside you on a healing journey for the weekend, in a compassionate and safe environment. Our retreats are confidential and free of charge, including lodging and food for the weekend.
