I'm Laura Ruth...just an everyday girl who's lived a lot of life, filled a lot of roles, and needed joy, beauty and connection to thrive along the way.

My home base is Metro Detroit, Michigan, where my husband Ryan and I raise our four kiddos. He keeps me steady and I keep him guessing with my never-ending quirkiness. Our kids make our lives and hearts full. And our doodlepups are the bestest therapy dogs I could ever wish for.

Life is meant to be cherished. I believe that so deeply. I'm so grateful for the Jesus love that fills the earth. My daily prayer is that His light will flood my soul and His hope will overflow into the lives of every person I meet.

Life is big and overwhelming but I've found one major thing to be true—it goes so much better when I take it just one small thing at a time.
