From the ages of six to twenty, Laura struggled severely with body dysmorphia and feeling worthless. Over the years, this turned into anorexia, self-mutilation, and extreme depression. In a five year span, Laura went through intensive counseling and was transformed by rediscovering a relationship with God. Though recovery was not immediate, she began to find a healthy balance and discovered that God had a plan for her life. Laura is married to Ted and the mother of two amazing kids, Elijah and Christina. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. Evangelically, Laura’s passion is for women to hear that God has an amazing plan for their lives and wants them to see that life is not hopeless. She holds firmly to the belief that joy comes from a full relationship with Him.
