One of the things that I absolutely love about my ministry the when I have the opportunity to talk to amazing Christian women and hear their stories.  When I talked to Laura McCollough, I knew immediately a few things about her: 

  1. She loves the Lord
  2. She is incredibly talented
  3. God is blessing her to impact the lives of others

When we talked, I felt like I was sitting down with a friend just chatting over coffee.  She is warm and inviting and has incredible enthusiasm for her business, but most importantly, Jesus.


Before you watch the interview (and enter to win one of two great giveaways she has provided!), read a bit about her then grab a cup of your favorite beverage and sit down with us for a chat. (Where to find Laura and the giveaway are at the bottom of this page)


About Laura McCollough

I grew up reading lots and lots of books.  Books gave me a sense of adventure and lead me to different worlds without having to get on a plane.  I hate to fly.  So I never imagined my life as an adult would be traveling around the world and hosting creative retreats in far away places.  But the Lord has a sense of humor and when we allow Him to work in our lives, He usually stretches us in the areas we need stretching in.

About 15 years ago my husband sold his business and we decided to do something crazy… we took a year off to travel the world with our two young daughters!  It was an incredible adventure (on lots of planes, trains and automobiles) and such precious time in our families life.   I believe it opened up a door to opportunities the Lord wanted to show us in this big world we live in.

 I have a PASSION for Bible Journaling, blogging and recording our memories in all kinds of ways.  I love to create, I love the process of creating, and I truly love teaching others how to make that connection between art and faith.  I’ve worked with scrapbook and mixed-media companies and local art stores for many years. I love that the Lord has blended all of my creative passions together to show me how to use them for His glory.  I really believe the desires of our heart come from Him and when we allow Him to work in and through them, it all makes sense.

This past summer we felt the Lord stirring our hearts to something again.  Something way bigger than us.  So we have stepped out in faith and He has opened the doors and gone before us in amazing ways.  I’d love to share our journey with you as we build a “gathering place” and home in Colorado, for His purposes.  Side Note:  When you open yourself up to God sized dreams… watch out!

When I’m not working I enjoy cooking, listening to music, laughing… a lot, taking way too many photos of our family and dog, and spending time with family and friends.

Currently I host Art & Faith Creative Retreats in Italy and France. (and soon to be in the USA as well)  I feel so blessed to be able to blend my faith with my love of teaching, creating, and yes now traveling, and would LOVE for you to join us on one of our next adventures!
