I am Laurie Landry, an active Christian wife, mom and grandmother from South Louisiana. I have five children of my own, ages 13 to almost 30, a 30-year-old step-son (married) and two grandsons that are 3 and 7. My family, friends and church will have starring roles in my blog posts. I have lost over 75 pounds after having a Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy in August of 2017. I will write about my weight loss journey and share tips related to eating well and exercise as I continue my journey to better health. My life has been a typical roller coaster ride and I am an open book. I will share much of my story with you and how I have grown through the circumstances. My latest obsession is bullet journaling, since I wanted to pair my planner, Bible study, Bible journaling, and many tools for organizing my life. I will share my pages and search for other ideas and creative elements to make the pages beautiful and inspiring. Much of my writing will also be related to home & outdoors since we bought a house in the Fall of 2016 after a devastating flood in our area. We lost everything, as did many of our friends and family. We have been working on the house since we bought it and still have much more we want to do, inside and out. We are very hands-on and do much of the work ourselves. Please visit often as my desire is to inspire, encourage and entertain you.
