Colossians 3:16


Ladies Night Out?


Women are pulled in so many directions, and live with incredible pressure within and from others. Life is often overwhelming and exhausting! 

Put aside the to-do list and come “sit at the feet of Jesus” at Ladies Night Out where you’ll be encouraged in your love for Jesus, or discover a new perspective about life altogether.

You weren’t created to be “good enough!” In Christ, you’re able to experience more purpose and joy than you’ve ever thought possible. Discover the “abundant life” He spoke of in John 10:10.

This night will be a tremendous encouragement to you as you learn from Laurie how to grow in your application of the Word of God to your life. This is a night you don’t want to miss!



Laurie began writing, teaching, and publishing her own curriculum in 2003 when the women of her church in Boston asked her to disciple them. She has a passion to teach God’s Word and to call and equip women to live the gospel. She has a unique gift for teaching the Bible in a winsome and engaging way encouraging women to know Jesus intimately, love Him deeply, and follow Him fully.

Laurie is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning. Laurie was a stay-at-home mom for 25 years and homeschooled for seven of those years. She has been teaching the Bible and counseling women for over 30 years. As their children grew she began to teach Bible studies and serve as a part of the women’s ministry team in her local church.

Her studies on Christian living, spiritual growth, and marriage are powerful, practical, insightful, and always theologically sound and Christ-focused. She writes and speaks for heart and life transformation. Studies written by her include the Falling in Love Again with Your Lord, Husband, and Children series, Fearless, Jesus I Need You, Jesus I Love You, Heart of a Woman, Precious Hope, and more. She has written two books, Lord, Look Inside My Heart and the Falling in Love Again with Your Lord book series. Laurie now serves as the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Thistlebend Ministries.
