Lauren and I got to know each other in
college through my brother and I have always been so drawn to her
authentic heart. When she reached out to share her story on the
podcast, I knew there would be so many out there that would be
encouraged by her words.
After losing her mom and then a tough
break up shortly after, Lauren began to question her faith and
start down a dark path. Growing up in the church, she felt like she
was supposed to have it all together so she stuffed her feelings
deep down inside so no one would know. The isolation led to more
darkness and an identity as "the sad girl" that had come to accept.
Once she decided to let people in and allow community to carry her
through, true healing began.
Lauren shares practical tips for walking
through darkness and speaks so much encouragement to anyone walking
through a hard season. She challenges us to let go of the
expectation to have it all together and just be real with God and
the people around you.
