Bloom Women's Conference
Saturday, April 18, 2020.
Registration opens on February 10, 2020.
Laura Story is a Bible teacher, worship leader, bestselling author and Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter. She has built her life- and a career- around submission to her calling.
The life of songwriter is a sacred calling and one Laura doesn't take lightly whether she's writing songs for her church, for a new record or simply for herself as a cathartic release. "It's not about my songs or my story or even my artistry," she says. "It really is about Him getting the glory for the work that I believe He has chosen to do through songwriters and through songs. It's a unique work that He's chosen to do there."
She may lead others in worship through song on stages both big and small, but on a daily basis, Story is intent on loosening her grip and choosing to live with open hands as an ultimate act of praise.
Her hit son "Blessings" was certified gold in 2011 and inspired her first book, What If Your Blessings Come Through Raindrops. Laura's music and writing show God's love and grace intersecting with real life and serve as a reminder that despite questions or circumstances, God is the ultimate author of our story, as told in her second book, When God Doesn't Fix it.
Laura has a master's degree in theological studies and a doctorate degree in worship studies. She has served as a worship leader at Perimeter Church in Atlanta since 2005, but her greatest joy is being a wife to Martin and mother to Josie, Ben, Griffin and Timothy.
