Do the things you wish would happen.

It’s always a good day to be a guest on Great Day Live! with host Angie Fenton.   I am grateful I can be a source of information and inspiration for my community; and, I have to admit I get a Laura-lift when I get to have a conversation (that’s not a text message) with [...]
