My name is Lauren and I am propelled by the belief that the world could be a much lovelier place if we focused more on what connects us and less on what divides us.

Through all our differences, there’s a common thread that runs through our humanity and my goal of writing is to follow that thread wherever it may lead.

Through the exploration of home, fear, meaning, God, doubt and insecurity, I hope to bring a voice to all the hidden things we feel.

In the midst of all the chaos and hate, I want to cultivate a space for good coffee, great music, unanswered questions and all the things we feel along the way.
