She Teaches People
Laura loves to see people learn and make positive changes in their lives. She believes an abundant life begins with having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, first and foremost. Her passion is to see people experience financial freedom and good health.
God led her through the heartbreak of an abusive relationship, healed her from a devastating divorce, and helped her recover from debt, food additions and cigarettes. She knows how to help others because she has walked along the rocky pathway herself, before she dedicated the remaining years to the Lord.
She is a writer of blogs, devotions, articles, and webpage content, and is working on a book for publication… soon.
