Leading women to walk in freedom and to discover the beautiful one He created her to be.

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 often times 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!

What others are saying...

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.

Loving, Biblical and Transparent

Laura lovingly connects with her audience, as she weaves biblical applications through her life story.  Thank you, Laura, for your transparency on hard issues that offers permission for those who need enhanced growth opportunities from the Word!

If The March For Life Was Painful

By Laura Acuna

Hello Girlfriends,
Today is The March for Life in Washington D.C. I wrote this post in 2017, and ever since, I’ve re-posted it each year. I share it annually to {hopefully} bless any woman who is feeling conflicted or in pain over a past abortion. This can be a silent pain, and carries with it invisible suffering. If you are such a woman, know that you are not invisible to God – He sees you, knows you and loves you. – Laura
