We can help you attune to God, yourself, and others so that you can use your time, talents and treasures well.


 Coaching is for everyone. Great leaders continue to use coaches to help them achieve more. But did you know that God desires for all of us to finish this race of life well, not just great leaders. He knows us each by name.

"It is such an honor and joy to be following the Rooted program with Lauren. Lauren so warmly invites you deeper into the heart of God. She provides so many enriching tools to draw you closer to God and orchestrates the most beautiful connections with God. I have had some of the best conversations with God inspired by Lauren's meaningful questions that I had never thought to ask on my own.

My soul feels refreshed and truly seen by God. To encounter God's presence in such a real way, to know Him more, to see myself more clearly in His eyes, is such an amazing gift that has brought me so much joy and sweet intimacy with God in my life.

Walking with Lauren has been a true treasure and will have a lasting impact on my relationship with God that will continue to bear fruit and grow me closer to Him. I can't recommend this enough. It's probably one of the best things I've done to care for and nurture my relationship with God."

Carolin Shubert


" I still can’t say enough how thankful I am to do this life coaching time. It was such a gift. I never would have thought I needed it but I did and the Lord used it in unpredictable ways I could never have imagined.

If you are like me and long for deep conversations and the right questions that lead you in the presence of the Lord, then this is what is happening under Lauren's leadership in the Spring Reset program. 

I am still harvesting so much from this. I am truly thankful and grateful. It is like coming to a prepared soil ready for us to join in with the garden work. It deeply amazes me how the Lord intentionally chose every single member of the group (who quickly are becoming friends because of it), how he puts the wisdom and experiences everyone has together into a beautiful picture only He can make!"

Sarah Stroer May


"These coaching sessions through Rooted have brought new life!

As a believer, a wife, a mom to a toddler, and as a mental health professional, I have appreciated my one-on-one coaching and prayer sessions with Lauren! Her topics, organization and structure bring a safe space to process and reflect life's experiences. I have had powerful times as we have celebrated strengths and navigated life's challenges.

Having joyful and engaging conversations with the accountability has given me new momentum."

Bailey Briner


Lauren has been a mentor and friend to me for over a decade and I have a deep love and respect for her. I have been able to receive counsel from her for years, but when she launched this life coaching  program, I was excited to see what it was all about. I have been blown away! I thought I had already received so much from Lauren, yet this program continued to reveal new treasures.

During this time, I have grown deeper in my walk with the Lord, more intentional in my prayer life, and more aware of myself and how I relate to others. I have also gained valuable insight into how to prioritize through prayer. This program is really special, and Lauren is a gifted, compassionate, and insightful coach. I would whole heartedly recommend this program to anyone seeking to live their life with intention before the Lord."

Marie Lebow


"I enjoyed the format of the Planted: Spring Reset. The mix of sharing and contemplation led to a peaceful place to hear from God and to set priorities. I especially enjoyed the exchange between the participants.

It was encouraging to see that though we’re were in different places and different seasons we were able to give and receive support and encouragement."

Teresa Heath


"I loved how this time of reset helped me personally to re-evaluate, focus and prioritize what is really most important in my daily schedule. I connected with the different attributes of God. It gave me so much more clarity in regards to specific details of my day to day activities. It helped me to enter into a deeper place of rest. As a result I began to experience less stress and pressure.

I have been able to clear my schedule a lot more for time to just be with Him and family. I highly recommend this reset group to anyone. It will greatly impact your life and your relationship with the Lord. Your heart and mind will be opened so much more to who He really is and His loving hand in your life personally."

Susan Edgar


"What a gift to be able to reconnect with Lauren and go through the 12 week (meeting every other week) coaching strategy that she has developed. I went through it as my husband and I were going through a major transition. It so helped to root and ground me in the midst of navigating change. It taught me more about myself and about how God sees me in the midst of a hard season. Lauren has tremendous insight and imparts practical wisdom as she mentors, challenges, and encourages." 

Nicole Young


"What I enjoyed about the reset group was that it was such a safe environment to be able to around all walks of life and personality. Long time since I had a been around a community of believers. Reminded me of Living and Breathing the Word of God. Beautiful to meet people that I had not meet if it wasn‚Äôt for the group. Nice to laugh and have fellowship.‚ÄĚ

Ali Diaz


"The fall reset with Lauren guided me to the Lord's presence and voice, which helped me feel less overwhelmed with day-to-day tasks. Being part of a group made me feel less alone in the struggles and challenges that are common to humanity.


The course helped me prioritize since it strengthened my faith that the Lord is with me and has equipped me to accomplish the things on my plate and live out my purposes in this season of life.


I really enjoyed the print outs Lauren provided as helpful tools with the course, especially the beautiful summary graphic so I could hang it up and remember what the Lord spoke to me about in the fall reset.


This course increased my intimacy with God and my fellowship with other women, who were both in and outside of the group.


I would recommend programs with Lauren because she is a vessel who loves and receives from the Lord, and she guides you into that place of reception and impact that comes from closeness with the Lord and His Word."

"The one on one coaching time has been such a blessing and a mayor breakthrough in different areas but the most important is my¬†communion with the Lord.¬†I felt so much guidance and ‚Äúcoincidences‚ÄĚ in our conversation and time with the Lord.


I feel it has given me language and just good and practical tools for me, my family, and to use with other woman that reach out for any advice.


I am so thankful and give testimony to the Lord for His intentionality during the sessions."
