LaurieHopes & Dreams was inspired by Jeremiah 29:11.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

You are a perfectly designed masterpiece, created and given life by the hand of the almighty God.  Unique in every way from the freckles on your nose, the sound of your voice, and the bounce in your step. Designed with a set of abilities and dusted with life experiences.

It is my prayer for you to discover your potential, seek out your purpose and to use your abilities and experiences to touch the lives of others in a positive way.

Hopes & Dreams is a tribute to our Father, the Creator, who blanketed the earth in beauty; to Jesus Christ, our Savior, who willingly suffered for the sake of His children, and to the Holy Spirit, the believer’s constant companion.

Where there is Jesus, there is hope.
