About Laura M
Laura’s first love is God, then people, and mashed potatoes and otters follow close behind. Just months after completing a master’s in Speech Pathology, Laura was a passenger in a near fatal car accident. The crash had a profound impact on her life, but not in her trust of God’s good character and His sovereignty. She values the unique opportunities the accident has provided for sharing her faith, and also enjoys being outdoors, pencil drawing and playing stringed instruments.
