Welcome to Heart of Deborah! I’m Lauren. I created Heart of Deborah as a community for moms. I dreamed about being a mother my whole life. I seriously couldn’t wait to have kids!
Then when I finally did I realized how hard it was! And phew it was a moment of panic. I want to reignite the joy of motherhood and provide a space for moms to find hope, encouragement and inspiration. A place to laugh, cry and cherish life!
Now let me introduce you to my family! I married my wonderful supportive husband, Darryl, in December 2010. We have three kids and love watching them grow and learn every day.
I am passionate about family, faith and living life without fear. I have a background in school psychology and I teach as an adjunct psychology professor at a local 4 year university.
When I’m not spending time with my family, you can find me chasing our kids outside, exploring our city or crafting. I hope you are blessed by what you find at Heart of Deborah.
Connect with our community of moms on social media!
Why Heart of Deborah?
Deborah’s story in the Bible can be found in Judges 4 and 5. As described in these chapters Deborah was a prophetess, a judge, and a mother. The thing I love the most about her story is the fact that she was a strong woman.
However, she did not overpower or degrade other people because of this. Instead, she held on to the grace of a woman. She was strong in her convictions and was a mother yet leader in her time. I love that she was both (strong and gentle; mother and warrior).
There are many women in the Bible who I can relate to, but I have felt a special connection with Deborah’s story.
