As an ordained minister, she has been performing spiritual ceremonies for more than fifteen years. Laura speaks publicly on a number of matters including human rights, sexual abuse, teen suicide, homelessness, depression, healing the past and learning to "thrive rather than simply survive" our lives. Calling upon her personal experiences as well as more than twenty-five years of study in metaphysics, world religion, and philosophy; she brings a fresh perspective to the practice of modern day spirituality…which she refers to as "Spirituality For Real Life." She and her daughter founded the "Soul to Soul" project, which focuses on supplying those who are homeless and suffering with blankets and inspirational books. Laura lives in New Hampshire on a small farm with her husband, their beloved daughter and many happy animals. She believes that every person comes into this lifetime with unique and wonderful gifts; "It is the sharing of those 'gifts', which make a profound and lasting difference for the future."

The Caterpillar's Flight is a journey through childhood sexual, emotional, and physical abuse to a life of forgiveness and joy. The author reflects upon her past and more than twenty-five years of study in metaphysics, world religion, and philosophy; discussing everything from sexuality to politics with an honest and appealing approach. Laura sheds light on how often we create obstacles to our happiness and how negative choices are typically based in a lack of forgiveness and self worth. We tend to create habits of accepting stress and resentment as a part of life, rather than an opportunity to transform and embrace healing. The author infused this book with humor, insightfulness, and the sensibility she terms, "Spirituality For Real Life." Powerful meditations and practices are shared which will increase your ability to live life with more enthusiasm, success, happiness, and prosperity. The future depends on how well we heal the past. Healed adults raise wise children and this is the path to a more peaceful world. This book will assist you in gaining deeper clarity about your past, live more deeply in the present, and look to the future with fresh eyes. It is a book you will reach for again and again.
