Martin Ferry, OH
Laurie is the daughter of a career marine turned Baptist pastor – she calls this a “double whammy”! Growing up under the strict guidelines of the military and then becoming a “PK” to boot, Laurie has seen her fair share of challenges and struggles. Through it all, her faith in Christ has kept her strong and resilient. Even when she strayed into the world, God always called her back into His loving arms. Her motto is “Where God guides, God provides!” It has always stood true in her life’s journey.
Throughout her life, Laurie has always given God the glory for her musical talent, whether gospel or secular, but she has always known that God would call her to His work someday. Laurie has been speaking and empowering others to accept God’s grace and will for their lives now for many years. She uses God’s word and the gift of music to further the kingdom of God. Laurie shares her life’s journey with groups of all ages. Young and old, women and men walk away with more than just a feeling of being “entertained”, they feel energized and engaged in the “Simple Truth” of the gospel.
