Hi guys! I'm Lauren and I'm just a girl living 30 minutes south of Atlanta, Georgia trying to make a living and a difference in this crazy world. As a hairstylist, a Certified John Maxwell Coach, and as a Plexus Ambassador I hope to somehow impact you!. Most importantly, (SPOILER ALERT) I just want to be your friend and share my life with you; after all, isn't that is what life is all about: connecting, sharing, helping, inspiring, and loving others. Welcome to laurentruka.com! Me Casa es Su Casa or something like that. I love to eat pizza and wings, ketchup on my mashed potatoes, and M&M's in my popcorn. I enjoy traveling, serving within my church (AVALON CHURCH IN MCDONOUGH) my community, and within my inner circle. I really just like to live, laugh, and love, no matter how generic that may sound. I believe that life is a precious gift and so it should be lived to the best of our ability! That's why I stay up really late and wake up fairly early. And during the day? You know it!, I stay very busy with work, ministry, school, and life. Sunday is my rest day because the bible tells me so (Deuteronomy 5:12-14). I love puppies, long walks on the beach (or here in stockbridge...in the park), drinking coffee, and learning! I would love to lose about 30 pounds but I love to eat and don't exercise. I'm not perfect but I'm not imperfect because the bible tells me so (James 3:2). I love to read books and I rarely watch TV unless of course I'm binge watching The Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time, or Pretty Little Liars. I have lots of kids... lots! I serve in Avalon Church's Student Ministry on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings and I LOVE LOVE LERRRVVV it! I also love my family very much and I am so grateful for the love, support, and encouragement they give me everyday!
