Hi, I’m Laurel…
I am a wife. I am a mother to Luke, born prematurely due to HELLP Syndrome. Luke was born with a congential heart defect, kidney defect, cerebral palsy, and recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
I write this blog. It’s my space, my outlet and my way of working through some of life’s challenges. It’s my healing.
I believe in living each moment to the fullest because tomorrow is promised to no one. I believe in seeing the blessing instead of the burden, giving hope to the hopeless, and walking by faith.
I believe in overcoming obstacles and the power of the human mind to change circumstance from bleak to bright by the thoughts we keep. Beauty is present in all of life. Can you see it?
I believe there is purpose in pain – we have to find it.
I want to share hope and joy and faith with you. I didn’t always have these things and sometimes, even now, they can be a struggle. Life is messy. People are messy. I invite you, welcome you, to come be messy with me, learn with me, grow with me.
…And bear with me as I navigate this world of blogging.
