Words from Laura:
“I will tell anyone that if God has given you a dream, then you need to make that move. He will not give you a dream that He won’t supply the means for you to accomplish it. Just remember that you can do all things through Jesus Christ. I am just like Nike, ‘I just do it,’ and you should too!”
