Chapel Fall 2010: Ridley Barron
No one could have predicted the course of events that brought Lisa and Ridley Barron together. God works that way sometimes. The end result for them is an amazing picture of faith, determination and promise.
Ridley’s family was ravaged by a terrible car accident that took his wife followed by a hospital-induced medication error that took his toddler. Lisa’s family was ripped by the pain of failed marriages and broken promises. From the ashes of their individual stories, they have partnered together to bring the good that God promises can come in even the worst situations.
Now, as they work to “swirl” (a word they prefer over blending) their family, they also work to encourage others in the medical industry and in faith-based settings.
Ridley has emerged as a nationally known speaker on topics such as quality of care, survivor guilt, sentinel events and the second victim in hospital errors. He also leads marriage and family retreats, young adult and youth conferences and leadership training for many organizations.
Lisa’s own reputation has grown as she speaks to encourage women around the country with words gained from practical insight, laughter and personal faith.
Together, they form a partnership founded on bringing positive change. They do this in a wide array of venues. Their purpose is to bring hope, healing and forgiveness wherever the doors of opportunity open.
Today, Ridley and Lisa live in Thompsons Station, TN with their four kids: Morgan, Harrison, Abby and Landon.
