Laura Acuña

Are you in need of a speaker for your next women’s event? I would love to have the opportunity serve alongside your team and share God’s truth with the women who attend

Many years ago, I felt God call me to speak to women of all ages and stages. Based on my own story and life lessons, I share Biblical truth on becoming spiritually mature and emotionally healthy women. Within each topic, I teach on trust, faith, living as a Christian woman in our current culture, resilience and the importance of applying God’s word to our lives for growth and change. I believe as God grows and changes us, we become emotionally healthy and spiritually mature.

My style is authentic, honest, funny at times, and always compassionate & caring.

The goal and prayer for every speaking engagement is that attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of God’s word, His great love for them and that it is never too late to become the healthy, whole and beautiful women He created them to be.

From Laura's Heart

My deepest desire is to continue to grow in my relationship with Christ, to become the mature woman He has created me to be and to inspire the same desire in other women. The calling God has placed on my life is to encourage and challenge women to grow up in health and wholeness and to take God at His Word. I want each woman to know she can take off her mask, experience His restoration, and be the beautiful one He created her to be.

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!
