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

It is hard to believe, but today marks one year since my mother went to heaven. I was going to write ‘since I lost my mother’ – but, as my friend Debbie reminded me recently, I haven’t lost her at all. She is safe and I know exactly where she is. Thank you, Jesus. I…

My summer started with a long-awaited lunch with one of my oldest and dearest friends. We wanted to get together ever since my mother died in March but, because I work at the local high school, we decided to wait until school was out so we could both relax and enjoy the day. Work ended…
