Did you hear? My next children's book, Like Me, is ready for pre-order! 

Want to open the door to meaningful talks with children about disability, empathy, compassion, diversity, and God's love for them and others?  If so, this book is for you!

yes! that's me.

Over the years, I’ve dabbled in everything from designing wedding invitations to social media consulting. In 2016, I co-founded Risen Motherhood, a ministry that brings gospel-hope to moms around the world, and today I’m the Executive Director of the nonprofit. 

Over the last several years, I've written a handful of award-winning and bestselling books and it's my joy to see them in people's hands and homes. I also share my writing through articles, essays, and poetry online. You can find me fairly regularly on Instagram and definitely through my newsletter, as I write and share about the "thin places"—where Heaven and earth collide and you catch glimpses of God at work. 

Above all, the gospel is everything to me and I want to see Jesus’ fame spread to all corners of the earth. So no matter what I do or my current interests, you can bet it’ll include that. 

Hello! I'm glad you're here.

I'm Laura. I write books and create resources about the intersection of faith and life to serve you, your family, and the church.

Right now, I'm probably thinking about: Great design, six new book and business ideas, and where I can get my next good cup of coffee.
Also, throw pillows.

I like to wake up with the sun


we're better together


god gave us more stars than anybody else


(na-ko-miss) my loyal goldendOodle


I love the science behind wHy we do what we do


a new love


the contained kind—candles, bonfires, fireplaces, etc.


i love them so much I could literally cry


casual, beautiful, and edible—three of my favorite qualities

I like to wake up with the sun


we're better together

(na-k0-miss) my loyal goldendoodle


I love science & learning why we do what we do 


a new love


the contained kind— fireplaces, etc.


i love them so much I could literally cry


wild and carefree, like they planted themselves
