Lauren and her husband, Larry, have been married 26 blissful years, and she looks forward to growing old with him. There’s not been a dull moment yet! Lauren delights in being Larry’s wife and loves spending time with family and friends, especially when food is involved. Any free time is spent outside, doing anything and everything. Lauren’s professional life has been in as a television reporter before she left several years ago to care for her family.
Lauren and her husband have been members at Grace Community Church since 1982. She works with women’s ministries, participates on short-terms missions teams, volunteers at the Shepherds’ Conference, and works with high school students and staff.
Daily discipline and discipleship are central to Lauren’s spiritual life, and one of her favorite passages in Scripture in Psalm 121, which became very personal to her as a new believer many years ago, and continues to strengthen and encourage her. “I will lift up my eyes to the mountains, where my help comes from. My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip. He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper, the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The Lord will protect you from all evil, He will guard your soul. The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in, from this time forth and forever.”
