About Me

I’m Laura, and I’m glad you’re here.

I’m a Jesus follower and a writer, and I’m a single mom to four amazing kids. I have no spare time and, therefore, no hobbies, aside from watching various sports practices, attending church, and sitting in carpool lines.

I love to write and I love to help others, which is how I began my freelance writing journey in early 2014. I was an English teacher with one young son, and I hated leaving him each day to work my tail off for pennies. I read about location independence, SEO writing, and starting an online business, and I was all in. I began writing in January 2014 and replaced my income as a teacher within 4 months. I quit my job after the school year ended and poured myself into freelance writing. While many early months were more famine than feast, I learned countless lessons about running a business, being a writer, and my ability to function on little to no sleep.

Now, I’m nearly 10 years in and I’ve made writing my full-time job. I still get to work from home, I still get to hang out with my kids when they’re not in school, and I still get to create content and help businesses be found online. It is seriously THE BEST.

Aside from the freelance writing business, I also write with the hope of ministering to women. I have walked through many trials over the last several years, including miscarriages, losing my mother-in-law, and divorce. None of it has been easy, but I have experienced God’s faithfulness through each trial and long to share the hope and peace that I’ve felt with others. I am currently working on a book to share my story and help others through their struggles, all with the goal of giving God the glory and bringing more hearts to Him.

Regardless of what brought you here, I would love to hear from you and connect with you. Please fill out my contact form or check out my business website, LampstandBlogging.com.
