A NEW View

“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.”

Hello Family, Friends & Fellow Bloggers,

It’s me, Laura, from The View From Laura’s Window. Yes, I’m back and posting all the words and photos as before. However, the view may be somewhat different. I have rebranded and still in the process of growing my new view, Her Journey Towards Change.

I have this belief that there are two types of days; There are those good days and then there are those character builder days. No bad days. Instead, those days when life just doesn’t seem or feel right, when some days…weeks…months or even years, are just hard; those are the character builder days. Those days are not bad. They are challenging. They are demanding. They are empowering. But only if we allow it.

I have had those days. Those demanding days. Days when I didn’t think I could even make it to the next. But, I’m here to say…even on those not-so-perfect days, I was still beautiful.

Much like those contorted trees, I was all twisted and bent out of shape. But without those days, I would not be where I am now, at this very moment. I am now a part of the whole. A part of the bigger picture. An important part of the beauty exposed. For this. I am thankful.

If you are still here as a faithful friend of The View From Laura’s Window, I thank you for sticking around and look forward to catching up with all your blogs. If you are a new friend in this space, I welcome you and appreciate you coming along on this journey of change. I look forward to getting to know you so I hope you stay.

This photo was taken a few months ago when my husband and I were house hunting in Tennessee. Although this view from the front yard was absolutely amazing, the house was not what we wanted nor needed. We sought out many homes after this one and finally found, what I hope to be our forever home on this earth.

This photo is the view of the trees in the distance of our back yard. Although it doesn’t have the same gorgeous view, it’s beautiful in its own way and is what we call home.

I write these words to simply say change is inevitable.

We must learn to change. And we must change to learn.

In the words of C.S. Lewis..

“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different.” ~C.S. Lewis

  • Change is inevitable. But God is with us with every step of our journey. Change might be hard but the following scriptures are a constant reassurance to me in uncertainty.
  • Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
  • Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
  • Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

It’s good to be back. Be looking for some upcoming posts on my new website and the journey I’m on.

Her Journey Towards Change


Posted by

Hey Friend, Welcome to a part of my small world. Because this is called the "About Me" Page, I probably should say a few things about me. Right? Here goes.... I was a Certified Child Development Specialist for over twenty years, while working with infants, toddlers, Pre-K and Head Start..... I am now a Certified (Christian) Breakthrough Life Coach through Life Breakthrough Academy. I could say so much more between the dot, dot, dots...but I'll spare you the boredom. LOL I am the founder of -Her Journey Towards Change- for women who are (for whatever reason) on their journey towards change. I believe everyone needs that 'go to' person in facilitating change. But, sadly, not everyone does. I know what it's like trying to figure life out but can't seem to get past the 'stuck' mindset. The first step to becoming 'unstuck' is being truthful with yourself. Believe me...I know. This is why I started 'Her Journey Towards Change.' I have a passion and purpose for serving God and for serving women. My hope is to provide you with a valuable service in finding clarity in your struggles, accountability in reaching your goals, assisting with strategies through guidance and support, focus on your God-given talents and unique skills, offer positive insights and new perspectives and eliminate the negativity that might be pulling you down. I truly believe God has given women a uniqueness like nothing else in this world. I also believe when we, as women, understand our identity in Christ, we can know our purpose. And in spite of our challenges, we can live in faith with the hope and joy God desires for us. ~Born and raised as a coal miner's daughter in North Central West Virginia is what keeps me humble. My influence as a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother gives me purpose. Living my life to the fullest and making each day count is what keeps me fulfilled. Using my God-given talents for others simply makes me happy...and living for God is what makes me whole.~
