Elsie Michigan is Laurie’s hometown, well, more accurately, her village. It boasts one of the largest herds of milk cows in the world, and on a good day the wind is blowing south. The most important decision she ever made was the decision to allow Jesus to take the reins of her life. Laurie was 11 years old.
That decision led me to the most wonderful and handsome best friend and husband. He plays guitar, sings and loves to cook. God has also blessed Laurie with ten (yes, ten!) energetic and fun- loving kids; four girls and six boys. Six of her children are biological and three are adopted (and one adopted us) They have given Laurie two wonderful sons in law and a very sweet daughter-in- law, as well as eight beautiful grandchildren who call me Nana.
When Laurie was only 16, God called her to be a stay-at- home-Mom. It has not always been easy, but she has obeyed that call. The call of God on Laurie’s life has included teaching (both children and adults). Teaching others to love and serve the Lord is her passion. She has taught at least two generations of Sunday school kids. Laurie was a Sunday School Teacher for more than thirty years and a Children’s Pastor for over ten years. She has lived what she dreamed and loved every minute of her life!
