My name is Laura Richie, and I’m a wife; mom to 3 young kids; and a registered nurse. I’ll be blogging several times a month, primarily about my family and faith. I’m also in the process of publishing a book for families called The Advent Storybook! Matt and I are working on all of our book projects together.
I grew up in church, but I never truly grasped my need for God. I tried to be good and love Him and love other people, but I always ended up failing. Then, a couple of years ago, I finally understood how desperately I need a Rescuer. And once I connected my need to be rescued with the fact that He did come to rescue me, I was overwhelmed with His incredible beauty and grace. I finally understood that Jesus came to make both people and the world good and new again, like they were in the beginning. And I finally loved Him! This is what I wrote at that time. It really shows my heart behind this blog and all of the books I’ve written and plan to write.
Feel free to ask questions!
