About the Author

Lily Hannan

When people ask where I am from, I respond, "THE WHOLE WORLD!" As a kid we moved around and my Dad raised me knowing that "the world is my backyard." I have now put down roots in Phoenix and serve as the Coordinator of Diocesan Collaborations and Curriculum Support at Life Teen, but I still enjoy traveling for business and leisure across the globe. I am delighted to combine my passion for travel, mission, and people with my youth ministry expertise to help parishes and diocese lead teens closer to Christ. When not at work you can find me lifting weight at Crossfit, up a mountain, or under the sea with my friends and family. If you have any curriculum related questions, you can contact Lily at
