Laura is in her 40's and has five sons. As a new Christian, she experienced the horror of a home invasion. God used that experience for her to share her testimony in A Mom's Battle Cry for Rest and A Mom's Battle Cry to Overcome Fear, two nonfiction devotionals.


Since that time, she has been writing shorter length stories, fondly named "Cozy Afternoon Reads" in the Christian fiction genre.


She is a partner at Christian Book Finds and co-founder of The Edge  Books and Yay! Books. She also blogs on Candidly Christian under the byline I'm Surrounded.

His Grace, Our Lives

Her Story

Last time I checked, I was still breathing and if you're reading this, so are you.


Life isn't a fairy tale. It can be heart-wrenching and painful. Difficult times come to us all and many times they shape who we are and  how we look at the world. We can, however, find strength through the valleys as we learn to endure and place our faith in the One who sustains us and is our shield.
