Anita Lustrea is a broadcast professional with a career in radio spanning 31 years. She is a sought-after conference and retreat speaker and host of the podcast Anita Lustrea Faith Conversations.

Some call her funny, others use the word quirky. When it comes to tea, her husband says, “She’s just plain obsessed. And don’t get in her way if the water’s not hot enough or the tea didn’t steep long enough!”


Anita calls her husband, Mike, one of the funniest people she knows, except when he’s not, and then it’s just not pretty! One thing is certain, she would rather spend time with Mike than anyone else on the planet.


Anita lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, Mike, a pastor, and she is incredibly proud of her PhD student son, John, studying at the University of South Carolina.
