I am a very proud aunt with 6 very spoiled nieces and nephews! I am in college for my Bachelors of Science in Entrepreneurial Studies, in hopes to open a book store in the future. I am involved in my church, Cornerstone in Chandler, and love to hang out with friends and family. I also love to read, write, and watch criminal shows on TV. I just had my first children's book published, thank you Jesus! It can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the publisher's sitehttp://www.authorhouse.com/Bookstore/BookSearchResults.aspx?Search=Lauri Barkman. Its also always been my dream to learn how to play guitar and learn how to surf!! Feel free to check out my blog at http://lauriann-faint-hearted.blogspot.com/ and my new blog http://graciousvictor.wordpress.com/ :)
All women are not mothers, but all women are called to mother. To mother is to nurture, to train to educate, to rear, As daughters of Eve, all women are uniquely gifted to help others in their lives become one of who they truly are- to encourage, nurture, and to mother them toward their true selves. In doing this, women partner with Christ in the vital mission of bringing forth life. From the book Captivating!
