Hello! I’m Lauren. I would start with where I’m from, but I’m an Air Force kid who’s been privileged to call too many cities, states, countries, and continents home. If you want the long-winded answer feel free to ask me sometime! Living such a transient life cultivated in me a love for culture, missions, and people, which led me to get my Master’s in Christian & Intercultural Studies from SEBTS after finishing undergrad at the University of Alabama.
I married my best friend, Matthew, in August of 2017, and in February of 2018 we left our family and friends and moved to Denver, Colorado, where I work as a writer at a wonderful Christian organization and where he is helping to pastor and preach at a church plant outside the city. We love exploring the mountains around us and hiking with our pup, Chief.
Things I love: all things black (coffee, clothes, nail polish), rainy days, Harry Potter, the mountains, wildflowers, and reading good books.
Writing is something that brings me joy, life, and purpose and this blog is my way to share what I write. I write mostly on Scripture for many reasons. Because I believe that the living Word of God is the only place that you can find hope and life. Because as Christians we need to know how to study the Word and see the beauty of the character of God in it. Because God calls us to obedience and that means reading the Word and applying it to our lives. Because as I write on Scripture, I grow in my own understanding of and love for the Lord.
I write primarily with the hope that I can help you learn to read and study the Word of God in a way that encourages and challenges you to love and trust the Lord more.
Thank you, truly, THANK YOU for taking the time to stop by and read. I’d love to get to know you, so feel free to message me or comment with any questions!
