Laurie is a speaker, author, and associate pastor of Ocean Hills Covenant Church (www.oceanhills.org). She speaks at youth conferences, women’s conferences, colleges and churches around the country. She is also a speaker for Compassion International.
Laurie is a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary, and the author of several books. Finding Faith in the Dark was published by Zondervan in August 2014. Highlighting Laurie’s own journey, the book is about how to find God in dark times, and how our response to our circumstances can make a difference in the way our story unfolds. When Changing Nothing Changes Everything, published by IVP in 2017, considers how reframing your perspective can transform your life.
Laurie’s speaking ministry spans the range of youth, college students and adults. While she uses personal stories and humorous illustrations to engage her listeners, she is most of all interested in what it means to be a real Christian in a real world- and encouraging others to do the same.
