I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the wonderful things you have done. Psalm 9:1
Hello Girlfriends, I'm Laura!
I am no different from you. I want to live the abundant and effective life God has planned just for me, to be in His perfect will – but oftentimes I miss the mark. I am such a work in progress. The truth is: I talk way too much; I over-think everything; I have been called ‘flighty’; and (to quote Beth Moore) “I’m blonder than I pay to be.” Yet, in spite of it all, today I walk in freedom and joy in a way that escaped me for many, many years. I am one grateful woman!

Passionate, Relatable and Hope-filled
The first time I heard Laura communicate, my exact response was 'Wow'! Laura's teaching style is passionate, relatable, and hope-filled. She radiates warmth, kindness and a genuine interest in those around her -- on and off the platform. Her amazing story of transformation, coupled with her solid biblical teaching, will leave you also saying "wow!" If you're looking for a dynamic communicator, Laura has my highest recommendation!

Authentic, Impactful and Inspiring
From the first time I heard Laura speak at our church's women's retreat, I was drawn in by her vulnerability and her passion for sharing God's truth. She is authentic and her story is relevant and relatable. Laura went above and beyond to connect with her audience, even sacrificing her breaks between sessions to patiently listen as other women poured out their hearts and shared their own stories. Since then, I have had the privilege of participating in many of Laura's women's ministry events, and every time I leave feeling encouraged to make positive changes and move into a closer relationship with Jesus. I highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for an impactful, inspiring message deeply rooted in God's Word.

Relatable and Generous
Planning a women’s retreat with Laura Acuña is a blessing that will stay with me for years to come. Aside from her topic that was perfect for our group and her generosity in planning our retreat, it was the fellowship that we shared that made the greatest impact. Laura’s love for the Lord is evident in all that she says and does. Her knowledge of scripture showed me how passionate she is about her calling and her warm, loving personality made me want to be her friend. Her story is one that every woman can relate to. All of Laura’s qualities translated into an extraordinary event that made every woman feel loved.

One thing is for sure, the good Lord is always providing opportunities to develop a more humble spirit within me. I’ve learned that if I don’t willingly submit myself to areas where He is emphasizing humility, it will not go well for me. He’ll bring situations and people into my life to nudge me toward His will for my inner self. He will allow those situations to get louder and, dare I say, more painful until I pay attention.Read Post
