Nana Says’ Inspiration

For many years, I observed the character development of a young woman who was taught principles and philosophy of Dr. Edna Lister, minister, author and international lecturer.

Mentored, encouraged and given honest feedback and hard lessons on how to do life – its joys, responsibilities and laws – she was held accountable to God’s Gold Standard of behavior and values.

She blossomed spiritually, emotionally and materially and possesses the soul qualities of honor, loyalty, compassion and integrity.


Nana Says Studio- How to Do Life is offered in the spirit of this kind of mentorship.

Our mission is to provide a God-Centered foundational heritage of life tools and lessons to put in the back pockets of your mind, heart and soul and change your life.

May these tools be shared through generations so you and families grow up into the Light and become what you were designed to be.



Edna Lister, 1884 –1971

The insights, principles and many tools of this website are from the incomparable work of Dr. Edna Lister, the original Pioneering Mystic, minister, teacher and international lecturer whose seminal thinking, forms my best ideas and and is core to Nana Says’ mission.
