Bio:

Wife to Timothy for 8 years and mother to Wallace (October 2012) and Ari (July 2016), Laura believes in encouraging women in all seasons of their lives, and especially in the season of motherhood. She’s a first-generation Memphian, an advocate for adoption, a lover of words and the Word, and an avid science nerd, fascinated with GI physiology. Did you know the absorptive area of the human intestinal tract is roughly the size of a tennis court? Fascinating, right? Recently, she completed her Master’s in Clinical Nutrition to become a registered dietitian nutritionist. She’d like to say that she is a coffee aficionado, but she can’t. She navigates life un-caffeinated albeit mildly obsessed with hydration; she’d be more likely to forget what day it is before her water bottle. In recent years, friendship, wholeness, motherhood, and family have been the song of Laura’s heart, as she has been reawakened to the see the depths of love and grace. She counts it a great privilege to walk beside friends in the easy or the difficult, the ordinary or the unthinkable. For right where we are, there is grace enough, sufficient to carry us through the day.

Tips for Flying with your Family
I'll go ahead and put it out there, I do not like road trips. I'm not sure what exactly I don't like: maybe it's because I am more of a destination than a journey person. But I am working on it, as life is one long journey, right? With that being said, flying is my […]
