How do you live without hope?  That is the question that my good friend Coach Phil Bollier and I have discussed in depth in our times together.  In this recorded conversation, you'll hear just how he lives now after the loss of his love, Stephanie.  His life is full of hope, full of love for Jesus and others.

Listen in as I chat with one of my very best friends, Amanda.  She and I met through a shared experience of pain in the context of small group, and became fast friends.
In this episode, she shares the roller coaster of emotions upon learning her son Reese's leukemia diagnosis, and how she found an anchor through her faith.  Her story is incredible, and I cannot wait for you to hear it.   
Her heart for Jesus is so beautiful, and her heart to help others experience life change with Jesus is just the beginning layer of who she is as a person.
I am proud to call her my friend, and I think in this episode, you will begin to understand why.
I hope you enjoy.

In this first episode, I have the honor and privilege of sharing our story through the lens of my son, Andrew.
At just the tender age of 16, he was present when we found his dad gone, and was very quickly forced to become a man. 
I know that you will hear this in everything he shares in this episode. 
To say I'm proud to be his mom is a understatement, but I'll leave it at that.
His heart for Jesus is so beautiful, and this episode shares a fraction of his faith. 
I hope you enjoy.

Say Hello to Laura!

In a breath, my entire life changed and life as I had known it for the past 24 years shifted.  ...all with the five words I'll never forget, 'I'm sorry ma'am, he's gone.'  In that moment, my mind breathed the word I feared - widow.  

This podcast is dedicated to the journey of me rediscovering 'me' in the new normal.  It's messy.  It's real.  It's raw.  This life is God's story, that I have the honor of sharing.  His love story.  His redemption and all power to turn even the ugly parts of our lives into a purpose that will glorify Him.  

In my healing, I have met so many wonderful people who have stories - just like mine. Tragic, heart wrenching stories that make you question, why?  But in each of them, learning how and leaning into God's promises has proven just how sovereign our God is.  How could we not honor that? 

I'm Laura, your host through these conversations. I'm a Spirit Driven Success Life Coach, mom of four, widow, writer, life enthusiast and Jesus lover who is passionate about leading you through these moving and thought-provoking life journeys and sharing the truth of God’s promises.
