Hi! I’m Lara.
I’m a mom to three–one through the gift of adoption—a grateful wife, and a believer in the impossible (we have quite the story!).
If we could spend some time together, we’d likely be in my kitchen or out in my garden, and this is what I’d tell you:
I’m not perfect. And my path here hasn’t been perfect either. But, I’m living on purpose, and you can too!
Those white couches you see in my living room? We bought them long before we had kids, they have stains on them—and I don’t mind! I believe that making a mess is one of life’s greatest treasures. Making a mess doesn’t mean you become one.
The pictures of my husband Ari and me? A miracle, and proof that the impossible is possible.
With God, the impossible is possible.
I’m passionate about helping women get unstuck, unrushed, and living on purpose instead of by accident. Why? Because that was my story.
To help with those things, I created the PowerSheets™ goal setting planner, the Write the Word Bible journals, and the Cultivated Homeschool Planner. You can read my story in Make It Happen: Surrender Your Fear, Take the Leap, Live On Purpose, and my new book, Cultivate: A Grace-Filled Guide to Growing an Intentional Life.
My path here has been rather untraditional (yours too?) and I have learned in all my challenges that peonies grow through the dirt, and so do we.
Good things grow over time, through little-by-little progress (just like in my garden).
You don’t have to do it all. You can choose to cultivate what matters, right where you are.
This too can be your story.
It only takes a tiny seed to grow into a towering tree–providing shade and cleaner air and fruit for many. What we do here on this earth, no matter how small we think it is, matters.
Will you join me?
I’d love to get to know you, whether on Instagram, in one of my Facebook Live broadcasts, in person at the Making Things Happen conference (hosted twice a year where I live here in Chapel Hill, NC!), or on the blog. I’m grateful you’re here!
