About Lauren Bookout
I'm an Oklahoma girl living in Louisiana with my amazing husband Travis, and our sweet, busy son Oliver. My Masters is in school counseling and I love using that background to work with girl of all ages who are trying to find their place in the world and, more importantly, in God's church. When I'm not doing that, I stay busy as a photographer, speaker, and general preacher's wifery. I love my family, Oklahoma and Texas, being outdoors, wanderlusting, college football, and whatever whimsy is currently on my mind, but I try to live my life serving God in all that I do.

My husband can sleep anywhere.  On one family vacation he fell asleep in California and didn’t wake up until Texas.  I’ve always envied these types of people.  I’m generally the person that reads several books […]

Laugh it Off

“a time to weep, and a time to laugh” Ecclesiastes 3:4 I have this friend.  She’s one of those people you can’t help but love to be around.  She’s funny and encouraging and completely generous.  […]

Love the Single Life

It’s so easy to fall into.  You go to school, mosey from class to class, check the clock thirty times a day counting down the minutes.  You’re sitting in class one day, joking with one […]
