Meet Laura

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here! It is my joy and passion to encourage women and provide practical ways to experience the hope, peace, and freedom Jesus Christ died to give us in the middle of our real-life worries, stress, and relationships. 

I hope you enjoy learning more about my speaking and writing ministry. Most of all, however, I hope that while you’re here you will be reminded how deeply the Lord knows and loves you.

In Jesus’ Love,

Loving Coffee More than Lent?

I’ve prayed for days about what to give up for Lent. In the past I’ve abstained from speeding, sweets, and social media. This year I thought about giving up coffee, but I didn’t want to. Battling migraines the past two months has left me feeling pretty sorry for...
