Hey friends, I’m delighted to announce I’ll be one of the workshop speakers at the upcoming hope*story conference in FLORIDA this January! Not only am I ecstatic to be trading Canadian snow for Sarasota sunshine, but I also have the joy of hanging out with other writers, speakers, podcasters, and entrepreneurs who want to share their hope-filled words. Plus, I’m totally fangirling over the keynote speaker…



As if inspiring speakers, practical workshops, and connection opportunities weren’t exciting enough, we have the phenomenal LYSA TERKEURST—New York Times bestselling author and President of Proverbs 31 Ministries, as a keynote speaker!




It’s going to be a fabulous event. Plus, if you are interested in coming in person (how amazing would that be?) then you can use my affiliate code and get a $100 discount if you book by August 31st.

Just use the promo code LAURA at the checkout!



My workshop is going to be: “BREAKING THROUGH WRITER’S BLOCK” and I’m looking forward to sharing some strategies to spark creativity and ignite ideas to inspire and unleash your words so that you can continue your writing journey with joy!

Are you excited? I’m excited…




Other workshop sessions include Bringing Your Children’s Book to Life, Mastering Public Speaking Techniques, Elevate Your Podcast Interviewing Skills, Discover Your Writing Voice, and Impactful Storytelling.

Just to clarify, this is for writers, speakers, podcasters, and entrepreneurs. There will be a plethora of workshop options to choose from and attendees are able to mix and match or stay in their lane. Maybe you’re a writer but would like to hone your speaking skills. Or maybe you are curious about starting a podcast and need all the tips and tools to help get you started. We’ve got you!




And if you can’t make it to Florida on January 17-19 or prefer to participate in your pajamas, there’s an online option with a “Virtual Pass” where you get access to live streaming of keynotes, recordings of workshops, and more!

Either way, the hope*story conference is the place to join us for some inspiration, actionable content, and FUN!

(Don’t forget to use promo code LAURA before August 31st for a $100 discount on your in-person ticket!)



If this is not your jam, thanks so much for allowing me to gush—and please feel free to share it with any friends who may be interested!

Until next time,
