"Working with Laura has been transformational for me. Laura has the gift of being able to truly see a person’s potential, and to encourage and usher her into a more-actualized version of herself with courage and grace. Being seen by Laura feels like being seen by the Great Mother herself ~ an embrace and a blessing that, once received, can’t help but change a person.
When I first stepped into the retreat center for a weekend with Laura, I felt weighed down with the gravity of life in our modern world. Laura created a container that immediately felt safe, warm, and accepting of every person, exactly as she was, and where she was inside of herself and her life. Over the course of the weekend, Laura graciously wove all of us women, from varying places and backgrounds and interests, into a supportive basket that held each woman.
By the time we left, we were a sisterhood ready to radiate that love, empathy, and acceptance to our own communities! In addition to her space-holding abilities, Laura has a deep gift for sound healing. When she sings and tones, she creates a sound bath that washes over and immerses the listener in pure, healing love. The way she listens to and follows her intuition to work with clients is tapped into the energy of Life itself. Laura is mentor, leader, and servant of women for these times. Working with her is an investment in yourself, but also the planet."~Tiffanie Pope
"Laura's sound healing work is like church for my soul. The combination of the bowls and her voice transport me to the places and spaces where the answers have been waiting. Her work has helped me tap in to the deepest parts of myself to cope with grief, anxiety and energy blocks that have been holding me back. I am so grateful for her gifts and for the opportunity to expand in to a whole new realm of understanding, connection and love through this sacred experience.
I feel that this work with Laura has already helped me ground in to my mission, while feeling more wholly connected to my truth. It has truly given me wings. I am excited to explore new angles and aspects of my gifts in ways I did not have the capacity to prior to these sessions. Thank you, Laura!"~Amber Lilyestromwww.amberlilyestrom.com
"Finding and working with Laura has been one of the best investments of my 20-year career. I was stuck and she helped me get unstuck and think about living and being in a different, authentic way.
I originally went into the coaching with professional and personal goals in mind - and left with a different outcome - one that was much more valuable than the one I originally had in mind.
While a group setting, it felt intimate and personal - and hearing about challenges from other women in the group and the ways they approached them was also inspiring.
Laura quickly "gets you" and is an incredible listener, spiritual coach and cheerleader. The combination of her intuitive, optimistic, centered style, and understanding of women and life challenges was the best gift I could have given to myself at this stage in my life.
Lucky me I found her."~Kelly Hemmeline
"I had inspired ideas about what I wanted to do, but hadn't started anything yet.
I worked on healing a number of pains that were holding energy - the traumatic birth of my son, and also past experiences that were causing me to avoid taking risks lest I make a mistake. As a result, I am growing my coaching practice with confidence knowing that whatever blocks come up for me, if I have the courage to get curious about them and follow the trail to see what needs attention and healing, I will be ever expanding and moving forward with both my impact and my light.
Laura is wonderfully intuitive, extremely caring, and deeply grounded in her mission in the world. She holds space in a way that enabled me to relax into my own work - both the inner and the outer work of my business and family life - knowing that I am being held and that there is no push or rush for anything. That all is well and that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. Laura will meet you where you are at - and for me, that has been vastly different places over the course of our work together!
I loved so much about working with Laura - her way of bringing women together into small groups for laser coaching is magical in that there is such synergy in the focus and experiences of each of the women in the group. Not only did I get 1-1 coaching, but I learned so much from each other woman in my group. I love Laura's use of guided meditations - it has instilled such a discipline in me personally to ground and get focused into the day or task in front of me. I also LOVE her use of the crystal bowls and her singing as an integration into the coaching work we did."~Susy KilbySusy Kilby Coaching - Thrive in your brilliancehttp://www.susykilby.com
"I had found myself stuck, uncertain of my identity, my goals, my inner vision. I was seeking a way to find direction and meaning in where I was.
Huge, significant outward changes have occurred in this past year while working with Laura, including relocating our family to a new town, exploring new job opportunities, and beginning work on a major piece of writing. Many of these changes are not directly attributed to the work I did as part of MOMM, but coincidentally coincided with the timing of this program. I have been, however, overwhelmingly struck by the ways the universe has provided these opportunities as if listening to my inner voice emerge over the past few months. Listening to and allowing that inner voice to be heard and validated has been one of the most amazing developments through this work with Laura.
Laura has an amazing ability to be very direct, yet incredibly kind. She clearly sees through many of the artificial barriers all of us erect between ourselves and who we are capable of becoming. She focuses the work not on destroying those barriers, but transforming them into stepping stones, bridges, and building blocks. It was amazing to experience such a shift in perspective, from trying to fix a problem to learning how to embrace with love and understanding a challenge.
I absolutely love that she is a real human facing her own challenges. She openly shared her own vulnerabilities, and that gave me greater courage to do the same."~Marella Averill
"I wanted to work with Laura because my life felt unsustainable. I was exhausted all the time, and felt drained, as well as guilty for not doing enough work. To make matter's worse, even when I was doing things at work that I used to love, I felt like I just wanted the day to be over. After a particularly rough series of weeks in the spring, I knew I had to change something, but I wasn't sure how or what.
The main thing that I have accomplished as a result of my work with Laura is an inner shift - I feel more at peace with myself, more comfortable with my pace and accomplishments, and less guilty about what's not getting done at work. I am more in tune with my own feelings, and with making my feelings and happiness a priority. I am also better about stating my feelings and what I need, at work as well as at home. As for outer work, I completed two papers that have been hanging over my head during the time that I worked with Laura, and applied for a dozen new jobs in my desired field- after clarifying my goals and desired experiences for work.
Laura is an amazing resource and a truly excellent guide for any woman who wants to make a change but isn't sure how to do it. She leads you by asking you incisive questions, that are framed in an incredibly helpful way, and by giving you useful tools and practices to tune in to yourself and your need.
I loved the shift in perspective that she was able to bring about for me- I loved that she listened deeply, and then responded compassionately but also by pushing in areas when I needed to be pushed. I loved working with Laura because I felt truly heard by her, and by the other women in our circle. She brought together women from all over the world in a deep way, and I also loved hearing the stories of, and her responses to, other women. I always looked forward to our phone calls.
Working with Laura gave me a structure and starting point for bringing about the change I needed to accomplish my inner and outer goals. She also provided techniques and practices for tuning in to myself in new ways. Through my work with Laura, I have realized that time meditating, journaling, breathing, and processing in other ways is critical to my success- it is not frivolous! Laura helped me realize that is important to state what you need and having her strong voice and support in that gave me more confidence and assuredness in making my needs happen."~Ailene Ettingerhttp://tinyurl.com/aileneettinger
"I met Laura [through her] 7 day Hectic to Harmonious Challenge in 2015 followed by winning the whole course that I didn't even realize was part of the challenge. Then the invite to MOMM; I didn't have the money, but literally had the full total land in my lap at income tax time (we were expecting to pay out). Everything with Laura has been this beautiful mesh of synchronicity.
Now, I don't have a product line to show for this course like I hoped, and to be honest, I didn't get what I WANTED out of the course. I got what I NEEDED. I wanted to start building a business, plan homeschool, and simplify my life to make these things happen. Instead, I got amazing support through this deep, soul searching change – from leaving my job to learning lessons and practical tools for dealing with forgiveness, fear, anger, and loss. None of these things were even really on my radar when I started MOMM. Though I have nothing tangible to show for the work I did with Laura, I have a lightness that wasn't there before. I have shed so many negative, out-dated thoughts and feelings that no longer serve me and my path. I may not be where I wanted, but I am where I'm needed.
What Laura offers is not a quick fix. It's not clean. It's deep; it's tear stained and sometimes a little snot covered. It's messy. She asks you to reach into the dark corners and feel for the answers that may scare you or surprise you, but you find yourself a little closer to home with each day."~Cherish Moss
"When I began working with Laura, I was in the early stages of launching my new business. It was a very exciting times and I was on a bit of a high. I also had a lot going on, with a recent separation from my husband and trying to find a way to balance the homeschooling of my children with work. Since being part of MOMM I have delved deep into my emotions and my WHY. I've learnt all emotions are welcome and the negative, darker feelings are just as important, maybe even more so, as they are a doorway to growth,
Laura is highly intuitive and a true wise woman. She has an amazing gift of holding the space and creating a safe, sacred circle where deep healing and progress is made. I loved Laura's ability to make me ask positive questions about myself. I loved how she listened and supported me. I loved her gentle guidance. I loved her grounding meditations. I loved how I felt when I came off a call. It helped to be going through a process with other women who were so different but essentially the same. It helped to gain clarity and focus and to believe that I was capable."~Anna ChallacombeBlisscloudhttp://www.blisscloud.org
"When I began working with Laura, I had recently stepped away from my corporate career and was in the middle of a Pilates certification program. While I knew this was something I deeply desired to do, I was overwhelmed with the juggle between this transition, my family life and a desire to have a "career," and contribute financially to our family.
Since beginning my work with Laura, there have been so many wonderful openings in my life personally, and in the service work I am doing in our community.
Personally, I hold a deeper understanding of myself, and a newfound love for who I am, where I have been and where I am headed. I have learned it is entirely acceptable and honorable to claim this, and decide for myself and my family what is best for us.
With Laura's help, I listened to who it is I want to serve through the movement of Pilates and worked through the fears to truly honor that. I have now created my business and will be working in a lovely building with other wellness professionals, offering Pilates for birth recovery to women in our community.
It seems so simple to write these words now; however it was just a few months ago that Laura was helping me dig deeper to understand what felt most true for who I am, and how I would like to serve.
It was incredibly reassuring to feel confident that Laura would honor and hold space for me and where I was at. She then offered support, guidance and grace in such an incredibly loving, yet actionable way. While always honoring my deepest desires for myself and my family.
Through "consistent and persistent action," I am moving forward with my life in a very real way and claiming what it is I desire for myself and my family."~Susan MittelstrassReplenish Pilateshttp://www.replenishpilates.com
"I had buried myself under the role of mother for so many years that I had no idea how to get MYSELF back. Even from just the first introductory call before I signed on to MOMM, so much Laura had said resonated with me. I knew it was going to be life changing for me.
I feel a complete shift in my outlook. There is more joy, authenticity & connection in my daily life. I am prioritizing my needs for self care & overall sanity! I put the brakes on everything when I start feeling a disconnect so that I can re-align myself back to me. Laura's intuitive nature is powerful! She is a great facilitator that provides a creative and safe space to explore your dreams/goals for your life as a woman and mother.
I loved that I always went away with something after the calls. Taking that morsel of knowledge or realization for me to digest & take in. Sometimes it was just being in the presence of the other women and taking the time to listen & be heard.
Working with Laura gave me the confidence along with the structure & support I needed to make the shifts I needed to make in my life. Surprisingly, it was a lot of the inner work regarding my outlook that really made these shifts happen.
Working with Laura supported me by keeping me accountable to continue working on my goals. We defined next steps very clearly at the end of each of our calls and I knew exactly what to work on until our next session.”~Annalynn Ballachino
“Working with Laura has helped me focus on what I am working on and gave me the motivation and inspiration to keep taking consistent action even when I am unsure or scared.
Laura is so genuine and insightful - she always gave me exactly what I needed.
Slowing down and focusing allowed me to trust myself. By talking about our celebrations each time it really allowed me to see I was accomplishing things even when I didn't really feel like I had."~Karen Delanohttp://ifitweresimple.com
"When I began working with Laura I was overwhelmed with ideas and torn between wanting to solely focus on my family and create a life that I love. I was looking for help sorting through all of the strands that were drawing me in different directions when Laura's email came through, and I knew I had found someone that could help me!
Laura has helped me discover ways to balance my desires with my work as a homemaker. She has helped me overcome feeling overwhelmed and find the balance between caring for myself and my family. I have become more peaceable inside and out as a result of working with Laura and the other women in my group.
Laura has so much insight and patience- she truly cares about me and wants to see me grow as an individual and a mom. She has taken so much time to help me sort through the trials in my life and I wouldn't trade anything for the time, money or energy that I have put into the mastermind!
I love Laura's calm demeanor. I love that she is always willing to go above and beyond when helping me handle the issues aat hand. I also love that she is willing to share experiences from her own life- even if they were hard to share!~Cary Kornegay
"Laura is phenomenal. She listens and supports you without judgment yet in her very gentle spirit holds you accountable to yourself and your desires. If you choose to work with Laura, and really DO the work, your life will be changed."
“When I started working with Laura life was hectic. I was running ragged everyday and felt like I was giving my family sloppy seconds at the end of every day. I felt so drained and was struggling to find an inner peace. I had an idea for a business, but not much knowledge about where to go from there. I was feeling at the end of my rope with my job and afraid of what was coming next.
It is hard to put into words what has been accomplished as a result of my work with Laura. Professionally, I have opened a private practice for life coaching and it is truly phenomenal. I am doing what I love and not only does my work offer me the income that my family needed, it fully energizes me. I am still working my part-time job but because of my shift in mindset I no longer come home drained. I look for the positive aspects of what the job can teach me and put that knowledge to work in all areas of my life. As for the inner changes...I am almost speechless when it comes to that. I can honestly say that I am now at peace. Which of course means that there is peace in my home and all other areas of my life. The real beauty is that when I do hit a bump in the road, and let's be honest we all do...I now have the tools to bring myself back down. I know how to move forward fully grounded and at ease.
Working with Laura supported me by keeping me accountable to continue working on my goals. We defined next steps very clearly at the end of each of our calls and I knew exactly what to work on until our next session.”~Jean Ann StuartJoie Coachingwww.coachjeanann.com
"When I began working with Laura I was in a space of paralysis. I was attempting to do everything myself without any structure or systems in place and I was feeling burnt out. I knew I had to do something, but I didn't know what or where to go. Luckily I had been working with Laura as a client of mine and her intuition was telling her to reach out. I am still so grateful to her for following that inner guidance and suggesting we work together.
Laura has an innate gift that allows her to tap into her own intuition and know where you need support. She is such a deep well of wisdom and authentic support. If you are looking for support and accountability from a wise mama on a mission you have found her. I am in awe of Laura's attention to detail and her unique ability to intuitively know when and where you need support and stretch.
Laura and I started with the inner work, that was what opened the doors to being able and ready to do the outer work. Without having Laura ask those deep and powerful questions of my own soul I doubt I ever would've uncovered the roots of where my blockages were. Laura doesn't give away "advice" or answers. She leads you to find your own in a way that feels empowering and nurturing. Always starting with the inner work and then moving outward to the concrete systems that mirror the way I want to feel."~Courtney Pearce
“I am finally realizing my dream of entrepreneurship, which is something that I had almost given up on before working with Laura. I love doing the inner work with Laura. She is truly a master, in a loving, compassionate way. Laura has helped me overcome blocks and obstacles that I've been struggling with for many years. I am on track to transitioning out of my corporate job and into my purpose-driven work full-time. And although some of my fears still rear their ugly heads, I have the "tools" to better manage them. For all of this, I am infinitely grateful.”~Christine DyanBody Empowerment Coachwww.christinedyan.com
“Laura is like the lantern that shines on the pathway and holds space for you, while your own light brightens to the point of full illumination.”
“Working with Laura resulted in some seriously big and unexpected shifts for me. I went into the coaching program with some specific goals for myself, then, with Laura's gifts and guidance my awareness expanded greatly and I began to see a much broader path full of potential and opportunities that I hadn't even contemplated prior! Gently uncovering and dissolving personal blocks and self-limiting beliefs was the key for me to unlock hidden potential. Laura is like the lantern that shines on the pathway and holds space for you, while your own light brightens to the point of full illumination. The tools and support I received during my work with Laura have stayed with me and are incorporated into my daily life both in my home with my family, and beyond as I continue cultivating the life I truly desire with devotion, resiliency and strength. I would recommend Laura to any mama who is seeking greater fulfillment and support in order to tap into her full and beautiful potential. This truly has been a transformational experience for me - and the ripple effect has been felt by all whom I encounter on a daily basis.”~ Susy Kilby
“Laura is awesome. She's a great listener. She is connected to her clients in a very unique way. She is full of joy and ready to share it with everyone.”
“I was very eager to get moving and have an accountability measure in place. From our first conversation I knew Laura understood me and where I wanted to go. Even when I didn't understand it myself.I now have a firm vision of where I want my business to go. I've started a book, made connections at a local organization and gotten involved in professional coaching associations. The inner work is more complex as it usually is but I'm learning to let go of expectations, listen to my inner wise woman and recognize patterns of behavior that are rooted in fear so that I can overcome them.
Working with Laura has made me open up to truths that I often ignored before. She helped me be brave. She showed me the power of celebration.”~ Angela MooreUnexpected Artwww.unexpectedart.com
“When I began working with Laura I was feeling drained physically and emotionally while trying to run my two businesses. I was sad because I really wanted to work on my coaching business, which is my passion but was struggling to find the time and energy. My husband and I were even arguing more because of the changes I was going through within. I was trying to do way too much and putting a lot of pressure on doing things perfectly and within a certain time.
Laura has helped me to get a better perspective on things in my life. She also brought me to a place where we created the HOPE Method. I'm SO excited to bring this process out into the world to give women hope to release anxiety and depression naturally. This has sparked my excitement and motivation more in my businesses and life. I've been able to appreciate my husband more and realize that we are going to have different views but that can be a good thing. She is helping me to create businesses that are successfully while also leading a life that I am proud of and enjoying.
Laura has such an amazing ability to listen deeply and say exactly what you need to hear. She has a beautiful way with her words and I love how she instantly makes me feel calm and understood. Laura has incredible intuition and knows exactly which direction to take even though there may have been other plans. She is incredibly inspiring with the balance of her own work and personal life.
I've loved what she brings out in me that has been covered up for awhile. She knows exactly how to pull these ideas and thoughts out in a brilliant and meaningful way. I have such a connection with her and feel like I am her only client when we're working together. She has a way of making me feel special and valued on each and every call. She does not judge or criticize even when you are doing it to yourself. She actually helps you to stop being so hard on yourself and to value how far you've come.
Working with Laura has been very beneficial. I feel she is a like a business AND life partner ;-) She gives me new perspective when I am creating ideas and making decisions in all areas of my life. I have been able to create unique ideas for my businesses and work toward exciting goals while also creating a life that is less stressful and overwhelming. I know my work and life is inspiring others, which is invaluable. She is helping me find my brilliance and share it with the world, which is making my life even more fulfilled and purposeful. I'm excited to continue my journey because of the things Laura has helped me work on for the past year.”~Shayna MahoneyThe HOPE Methodwww.shaynamahoney.com
“Thank YOU Laura, for sharing your light and vision—for leading, encouraging and midwifing a diverse group of strong courageous women. Your vision has become the reality that we can unite in a nonjudgmental community—we can show up in our strength and not in our victimhood. We can choose to reach out in a place where we can share our deepest fears, hopes and concerns as well as our celebrations! We can become the best that we can become just by showing up where we are at in this moment in time. Dearest Laura—I am forever grateful!
After many years as a Registered Nurse, I became dissatisfied with the health care system, I knew that it was time for me to unplug from this arena but not to unplug from myself. I felt passionless, confused and stuck. Having been a seeker for over 30 years, I had developed a grounded spiritual life and rich prayer/intercessory wisdom—I knew that I was at a crossroads. My spiritual guides and teachers such as Caroline Myss, Robert Ohotto and Fr Richard Rohr have taught the importance of accountability and finding a system of support in a like-minded community. What I needed at this time in my life was to connect to an intimate group of support—a group whose leader was a true Visionary and Changemaker—who had the integrity that I had grown to expect from those who I place my trust in.
Tall order, but I did not have to look very far—I had been receiving newsletters from Laura Thompson Brady Ph.D for over a year--her writings and video offerings were powerful and thought provoking. She possessed the fire, lust and passion for life that I was desperately missing in mine. I had watched Laura skillfully and artistically nourish her family, friends and the community that she had so lovingly committed to serve. Her courage was evident through the way she expressed her vulnerability during all the deep dives into what was the truthful/heart of the matter--what needed to be said or looked at in depth. I became familiar with Laura’s transparent devotion to her inner Wise Woman and to her posture of discipline as she taught the importance of how one can continue to grow despite the demands of daily life, simply put—ditch the hectic to become harmonious. I was inspired and ready for her to teach me how to humbly navigate through my crossroads with fearless determination, focus and clarity. It was a financial risk for me as I had resigned from my position, but I knew deep within the marrow of my bones—deep within my core—this was exactly what I needed to do.
Since having worked with Laura, I find it easier to offer myself compassion instead of revisiting my former pattern of compare and despair. I have implemented her teaching tools and find that I have greater clarity, energy and focus for what I need to accomplish each day without the familiar undertow of procrastination and perfectionism. Today, I am involved in a course of study that aligns with my true essence and supports the further development of my unique healing gifts. My body and life are in motion—my heart and mind are congruent. I received more than I could have ever hoped for and MORE than what I paid for. Laura’s wisdom, intuition and no nonsense practical guidance honored who I am, where I had been and where I needed to go for the growth of my soul.
My entire life I have supported others. I cannot fully describe how empowered and grateful I am because I listened to my inner wisdom when I was guided not to isolate. I did not stay in the land of fear and confusion, instead, I grabbed on to Laura’s MOMM lifeline of support.”
“In closing, I have always had a sense of humor and I love to joke but the truth is: for those of you who are thinking about working with Laura my advice to you would be that it is in your best interest to go forward with Laura ASAP because once Oprah hears about her - Laura will not be available!!"~ Linda Scull, RN
"Laura truly helps with your mindset. I had some personal blocks in moving forward with my business that I didn't even know I had. Laura helped me find them and use journaling to get past them, I have never felt freer. Laura has my deepest gratitude for her time, energy and focus. I enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to women searching for the way to make their passion a reality. Laura is a gem in this world."
“When I first began working with Laura, I had a tough time deciding where to focus my attention on my business. My energy was spent doing multiple different projects each day and I felt as though I never accomplished anything.
Now my website and business are launched. I have set dates for live workshops and plans for a holiday challenge and 8 week signature course in the next 3 months.
I loved working with Laura because she was very real! She told it like it was and didn't sugar coat things. If there was something I needed to work on or was avoiding, she made sure I was aware of it and that I wouldn't move forward until I did. You can feel her kindness and caring through her words and her actions. She truly wants you to succeed and will help you get the action steps to work there.”~ Amisha KlawonnCentered Mamawww.centeredmama.com
"Working with Laura has helped me to realize a truth that I'd sensed before but not truly understood: that actively honoring all the facets of myself -- mother, partner, writer, creator, leader -- is not a luxury, but a MUST."
This knowledge has given me the energy, inspiration, and focus to set doable goals and follow through with them. I've converted a gloomy and little-used room into a lovely meditation and writing space. I've learned to create a schedule that reflects our family's values and accommodates our individual needs while preserving space for the writing I've never made time for. The included membership in Hectic to Harmonious is helping me on a very practical level to simplify, connect, and restore the family and community life that we've all been craving.
I decided to work with Laura because I was feeling that the vision I had for myself and my family had gotten lost amid the busyness of modern life. Specifically, I was feeling desperate to regain a sense of joy and ease in our family life, and also to commit once and for all to the writing practice I've been putting off for years.
Laura is knowledgeable, funny, generous, and inspiring. She is masterful at guiding women as we turn our ideas into action and dreams into reality. She has celebrated accomplishments large and small with me, but she hasn't shied away from asking the hard questions or nudging more firmly when that was needed. Even when I've gone into a call feeling discouraged or uninspired, I've left every one with renewed gratitude, focus, and energy. I've also enjoyed the materials Laura has created for MOMM and I look forward to going deeper into them on my own.~ Mykan W.
“Laura is very intuitive and has an ability to lead you even when you have no idea where you want to go.”
“Before I began working with Laura I was out of touch with myself and what I wanted out of life.Through this journey with Laura I have tapped into my inner wise woman and have gotten to know her. I'm still getting to know her and it's an on-going process, but I feel more in touch with who I am and what I want out of life.”~ Laurie LeeElevate Business & Technology Lawwww.elevatebusinesslaw.com
“I love the high I felt for days after talking to Laura: I felt so light with her supporting me. She is a powerful encourager, a visionary, a wise woman. She leans into change and transforms it into harmony and beauty. One very big thing I learned is that I don't always have to struggle to produce my life's work.”
“Before I began working with Laura, my life felt frazzled: I had three young children (including a nursing baby), I was working part time as a biology instructor and my husband and I created a work schedule so one of us was always home with the kids. Additionally, I was sleep-deprived, 30 pounds overweight (leftover from having a baby in 2014) and immensely unhappy with the day-to-day structure of my life. I had a vision for myself but was unable to see how to manifest it. I set out to re-vamp three areas: my self-care, my life as an at-home mother, and my teaching.
Through my work with Laura I have gained peace, I identified my passion project, I lost 20 pounds (and counting), and I abandoned my need for external validation. Even though our crazy-hectic home/work schedule hasn't changed, I'm enjoying and savoring life with my family thoroughly...and having fun!
Laura has the ability to put pieces together so a plan is achievable. She is able to clarify even further what I had made clear in my mind. She sees the place for and function of activism and suggested to me that I might be an activist (in the classroom).
In the mastermind, I was surrounded with women who had a greater vision for themselves. Working together, we created support for one another as we pursued our own individual projects. Laura was the center of the mastermind, highlighting my own unique talents and making those visible to me. The individual time with her each month centered me, and I found a burst of productivity following our sessions. With her help, I identified my passion project (to create an "organic" hands-on classroom) and began to see what this would look like. I learned to view my work as service and I saw my own importance in this work.”~ Jill Johnstone
“Laura is very passionate about her work and helping other women realize their true potential in changing the world. If everyone realized their full potential to live with passion and authenticity, to focus on and cultivate their unique talents and abilities, our world would be in a very different place right now. We would have healthier and happier families, less environmental pollution and toxicity, less chronic illness, and less violence. When more people are living in alignment with their soul's true purpose, we will all benefit.”
“Before working with Laura, I felt lost and overwhelmed. I knew I wanted to start a wellness business. I had a vague idea of what steps to take to get started, but was paralyzed by fear and unable to take the first step. When we first started working together, I started to see my path more clearly. I was more open, engaged, present, and less fearful. I was finally able to take the first step. I have come to fully realize my passion project is not just a hobby. It took a lot for me to realize the value of my work and its ability to change people's lives. This work isn't about me and whether or not I have the abilities to start a business. It is about changing the world, one healthy family at a time. As my mindset changed, I was able to take actionable steps to establish my business.
In realizing my true potential and working with the fear that comes along with that, I was able to take actionable steps to establish my wellness business. I was able to narrow down the huge field of wellness into who I wanted to help and specifically how I could help them. I am now working on targeted coaching programs and information projects that will deeply serve the women and families I can help with my unique skills and talents.”~ Shellie Bolyardshelliebolyard.com
“Laura helped me with what I thought was the scariest of endeavors, a new direction with my career, that I hyped up in my mind. She broke it down and into simple steps, bite sizes pieces I could manage... Allowing me to TRULY facilitate deep change. Scary Change. The type of change that there is no returning to your old ways of being... and Laura does it in such a way you do not realize the gravity of the change until you are simply LIVING IT. At which point you simply have to laugh with total relief.”~Alysa Farell
“I loved the feeling of clarity I received working with Laura. She helped me sort through the layers and emotions and overwhelm and get to the heart of things. I felt like I was being drawn out, the real core me was being brought to the light and all the other stuff that was overwhelming me and standing between me and my calling was being cleared away.”
“Laura is so amazingly intuitive! I felt so heard and held and understood on my journey with her. She knew what we needed to work on and she understood the weight of the challenges and the victories that I was going through. Laura's wisdom and coaching has been an integral part of the breakthrough I've had this last year. She has been a positive and uplifting voice for me and she has also known when I need a gentle nudge towards taking action and getting out of my "paralyzed" mode.I'm just so grateful for the opportunity to work with Laura and to be a part of such an incredible community of women!”~ Sarah CarpenterHadassa Gathering
"Laura's empowering mentorship is extraordinary. Her depth and compassion are so present, and her intuitive style brings in a deeper wisdom. Laura's soulful and wholehearted approach invokes a better woman out of you!"
“Overwhelm was a word I frequently used to describe my life. I was trying to do too much, struggling with authenticity (when to say yes or no, and how to do it), multi-tasking so much I was struggling with focus, feeling like there wasn't enough time to get it all done, and wondering how better to spend my time. I wanted to be a patient, loving and creative stay-at-home mom AND nurture my own personal growth and creativity, all while supporting a business with my husband. My husband and I were intentional about how we had cultivated our family and business life together, but overwhelm and burnout were not a part of that plan. And there were some bigger visions + dreams we had for our lives that we didn't have any space to manifest. I came to Laura seeking some effective tools on how to shift from surviving to thriving.
In my journey with Laura this year (through both Hectic to Harmonious + Mama on a Mission Mastermind), I have focused on how my inner landscape was shaping the outer picture of my life, and how the outer picture of my life could get closer to my big vision for my best life. It has been a lot of clearing the clutter -- physical and mental. The clarification around core values, support systems, scheduling, organization, and simplification, as well as tuning into my essential self, has helped me step into being a more peaceful and purposeful woman. Through this ease, I am taking decisive action around what is best for me and my family. Through this authenticity, I am acknowledging my power as a leader in my family and community. Through this purposeful intention, I am taking the next steps in my service path of supporting mothers and families in my community.
I love how Laura is fiercely committed to uplifting you. Even in those moments when I don't even realize I am being self-critical, or stuck in limiting beliefs, she will boldly call me out, and encourage me to acknowledge my brilliance. With her loving and genuine style, I never felt judged. She simply brings light to new ways of being or seeing things. I also love that she is sharing her best practices around motherhood, family life, entrepreneurship, and leadership. It's unique to have access to her diverse array of tools that she has refined through her journey. Being able to take the big ideas and make them doable is so valuable.”~ Jamie Jean KlocekBracia Designbracia.com
“No matter my circumstances, no matter the roadblocks, Laura is always ready to meet me right where I am. And most fortunately for me, makes me feel as though right where I am at that moment, is in fact, exactly the place - in time and emotion - I am meant to be. She has a way of not only inspiring you, but seeing to it that you inspire yourself.”
“Laura is genuine, intuitive and truly interested in seeing your goals and progress unfold right before you. She is interested in you both as a person (as in, if you lived near her, she would call you for lunch!) and the person you are meant to become.”~ Roxy Schow
"Signing up for the Mama on a Mission Mastermind was one of my best decisions ever! In a time where everything was changing and I felt very alone, Laura was the big sister I needed to help me work out how I can intergrate all the different parts of my life without everything being in some way sacrificed. And I love the community that we built up with the other women in the group to cheer them along the way."
“Laura is quite simply a lovely inspiring and uplifting person to spend time with, and that she's grounded in reality; she gets what it means to be working outside the home or trying to balance projects with family life and appreciates that just because your family is your first priority doesn't mean that your other projects are throwaway extras. Laura gave me more focused ambition and an arsenal of tools to use to help me find my way when I'm feeling lost.”~ Carie KaneSpace for the Butterflieswww.spaceforthebutterflies.com
"Laura is ageless in her wisdom and so nurturing and comforting. I always felt her focus was me.”~ Amanda Zoloto
"Laura helped me to craft a life I love and then build my mission driven work around my life, not the other way around. "
“Laura has this expression she uses a lot. She says "I will hold space for you." I never really understood this expression. Frankly, I thought it was a little cheesy. As a fast paced, high achieving, anxious and controlling personality, I rarely sit idle. In fact, before working with Laura, I couldn't sit calmly and just be. Laura didn't hold space for me, Laura urged me to give myself space and time. She gently but firmly coaxed me into that uncomfortable place and then she held me. So, Laura didn't hold space for me, she held me as I experienced what space felt like.
At first, this space was uncomfortable and scary, then it became expansive and nurturing. In this space my creativity expanded, my thoughts cleared and my priorities surfaced. In this space I became more harmonious with time, no longer fighting with it, claiming there was never enough of it. In this space, I craved more space, more simplicity and more ease. The work I have done with Laura as a Mama on a Mission has changed me. It changed what I expect from my daily life, from my home and from my family and as a result, it has changed how I look at my business. Laura helped me to craft a life I love and then build my mission driven work around my life, not the other way around.”~ Katie MaddenBalanced Breastfeedingwww.balancedbreastfeeding.com
When Laura coaches me, she is always fully present, engaged and sharp.
She is truly the nourishing mother she helps others to be.
Laura has inspired me to take more time to connect with my kids without feeling like I need to buy them anything, or do anything that requires money. She also helped me see that I can do fun projects with them without feeling crazy controlling about it, or feeling as though I do not have time.
She has helped me see the balue behind what I have done well, and based on my own values, how I can do even better as a mom. Thank you Laura!~Tysan Lerner
