I’m truly grateful you’re here today. I’m Lauren, lover of Jesus , dark roast coffee, all things fair trade and handmade. Nearly twelve years ago, I married my college sweetheart, who happens to be a pastor, and we have three littles that keep me seeking the Lord more than anything else in my life ever has, in the beautiful way that only motherhood can. By day, I’m a social media manager for our church, by night, I run a small print shop and my true passion, Elikia.
As a very broken teenager, I met Jesus and His grace and faithfulness continue to leave me breathless more than a decade later. Knowing Him has drawn out in me a deep desire to advocate for the least in the Kingdom and to give generously in return. My desire is that you’ll find Him here in this place.
Through a years-long adoption journey that did not turn out how we’d expected, God incredibly opened the door for me co-found Elikia Collective, an ethical home goods company providing dignified work to women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and beyond. It’s been a sweet story of redemption.
Thank you for being here. Thanks for walking out this journey alongside us!
Have a question or want to reach out? I’d love to hear from you!
