I'm Lauren, a wife, mom of 3, and a Christian writer encouraging women to live according to God's Word.
My childhood dream was to become a farmer. When I was 9, my parents actually allowed me to get a pet pig. Sweet Pea the piglet joined our family and I was on my way to becoming a real farmer. But it didn’t take long for me to realize owning a pig is messier than I’d anticipated, and my parents didn't exactly enjoy having the shingles eaten off the side of their house either. Perhaps it was more the idea of farming, or “fancy farming”, I was so attracted to.
After earning a master's degree in biblical exposition, my love of farms has pretty much been contained to the study of agricultural passages in the Bible and the occasional purchase of anything with a pig on it. The great news is, unlike my farming endeavor, biblical application always bears fruit! I love digging into all of scripture and writing about how it impacts everyday life from my not-so-farmy farmhouse on California’s central coast.
Thanks for checking in!
Age 9, the day my pet pig arrived. Also the day my mom called a local farm asking if they wanted a pig.
