Over the course of many years, I've witnessed Lauren in many ministry related roles, but especially with teens. Through her love of Christ, and her awareness of her natural talents to encourage and motivate, she is able to lead others in a way that allows them to reach their greatest potential. She is attentive to each individuals needs, where they are in life, and where they desire to go. There are many people that coach teens, but very few who share an authentic love of God, which pours out into authentic love for each individual they meet. Without a doubt, Lauren is a person that draws inspiration from the Holy Spirit and is able to inspire others in a unique way because of that. I believe she would be an asset to any ministry that seeks one-on-one coaching for teens that are looking for the purpose God has designed them for them.
