Laura Boggess

A soon-to-be-empty-nester, Laura Boggess is still learning what it means to come to Jesus like a little child. The older she gets, the more she realizes how little she knows. She wrote a book called Playdates with God: Having a Childlike Faith in a Grown-up World, about how a life of faith can be full of wonder. A Lay Preacher, Laura loves to share the Word of God in the little country churches tucked into the hills surrounding her home. Laura is a former Content Editor and contributor to The High Calling. She blogs at LauraBoggess.com, where she shares stories about chasing after the blue flower. Laura lives in a little valley in West Virginia with her husband, Jeff, and one of their two sons, who will fledge all too soon.
