"Our life is love, peace, and tenderness; and bearing one with another, and forgiving one another... praying one for another and helping one another up with a tender hand, if there has been any slip or fall... walk sweetly, meekly, tenderly, peaceable and lovingly one with another... watch your hearts and ways; and watch over one another in that which is gentle and tender... So, mind Truth, the service, enjoyment, and possession of it is your hearts..."
Isaac Penington, Aylesbury Prison, 1669

Special Qualifications
For seven years, Lisa Jessup's work was a teacher on special assignment to enroll and place Special Education students in programs appropriate to their Individual Education Plans. This work also required expertise in working with others to find a "least restrictive environment" for the persons needing assistance.

During this time, she developed a network with schools around Los Angeles County and some in other states. Performing this work created opportunities for contact with people throughout several school systems.
