Laurie is an Iowa born, Wisconsin raised, Texan with a BS in Social Work and 13 years experience as a worship leader. She and her husband work together in a small country Texas church where he is the youth and electronics guy and she takes care of the music, discipling teens through song and loving every second of it. Her life-long goal is to reflect at least a few facets of God's beauty and forgiveness through poetry and song. Her life song is gratitude for forgiveness given freely at the Cross. Her life's co-labor of love, alongside her husband, is raising their 11 year old son, who is all potential and equally all over the place.
