Exploring the implications of Christ's presence in all of life.
Articles by Lisa Burg
Lisa and Doug Burg live in Orange City, Iowa. Lisa is the marketing and public relations manager for Orange City Area Health System, and Doug is an independent commercial/advertising photographer. Lisa has a B.A. in political science from Northwestern College, but has spent most of her career in creative services, marketing, and public relations. They have three “bio” children: Maria, age 28, is back in college at University of Iowa, pursuing a degree in Spanish/Secondary Ed/ELL. Isaac, age 26, is an executive chef in Minneapolis. Tessa, age 14, is in eighth grade. A little over six years ago, the Burgs adopted siblings Sera, 13, and Ben, 9, from Ethiopia. A little over three years ago, Anton, 13, joined their family from Russia. Between the four young kids, there are eight musical instruments played/lessons taken and 11 sports participated in, so the schedule gets a little crazy. The Burg family has also hosted four high school international exchange students in the past six years (from Portugal, Kazakhstan, Egypt, and Mexico), as well as being host family for several college students from Ethiopia.
