Short bio: Laurie Davies helps women of all ages set bags down that God didn’t ask them to carry. Often this baggage stems from hard or dysfunctional relationships—topics she speaks on from various angles—helping women recapture faith, freedom and the lost art of fun. Laurie has been featured in Chicken Soup for the Soul and The Joyful Life magazine. Her writing can be found at lauriedavies.life.

Expanded bio:

A journalist and marketer-turned-ministry leader, Laurie Davies has been writing since her advanced composition teacher told her in 1989 that she broke too many rules. Laurie worked as a journalist and marketing professional for 25 years before making the next, obvious career move—a leap into vocational ministry as the women’s ministry director at Grace Community Church in Tempe, Ariz. 

She recently stepped away from that position to focus on writing and speaking full-time. Laurie helps women recapture faith, freedom and the lost art of fun. Laurie is working on her first book and her writing can be found at lauriedavies.life. She lives in the Phoenix-area with her husband Greg and her son Morgan, who is the best story she’s ever written.
