Living on her own by 16, surviving a life altering car accident at 18, and then becoming debilitated from a spinal injury at 28, LauraBeth knows well the adversities that life can present. Her faith in God was tested as her entire world crumbled, and she went from being a hands-on mom to 4 sons, ages 8 and under, to being confined to bed due to chronic pain.
In her darkest hours, she cried out to God, and found solace and comfort in words that came to her in the form of poetry, prose, and songs. Given time, she overcame her despair and pressed into God more deeply, learning to accept her situation, and determined to make the best of life, despite its difficulties.
She thought of creative ways to parent her children, and spent a lot of quality time with them in her room, which now became “the family room”. Reading stories, playing board games, doing homework, check in points, talks, and watching favorite shows were now the norm.
Once the boys were older, LauraBeth knew she was being called to share her poetry, and her story with others, to offer anyone going through difficulties a sense of comfort and hope! She had been given the name “Cheerful Hearts” about ten years prior as a vision. And knew one day she would have a company that provided “Good Medicine” to the soul.
In 2006, while still confined to four walls, that dream was realized, as she turned ten years’ worth of writing into an inspirational greeting card, gift, and keepsake line! She also began sharing her story as a motivational speaker, encouraging others that no matter their circumstance, with perseverance, faith, and determination, that they can overcome any difficulty they face! In 2009, she became a Live Your Best Life Coach, offering those going through their own challenges a clear path, with strategic steps to move forward to live their own inspired life full of possibilities!
It is her heart’s passion to encourage, uplift, inspire and motivate you, wherever you are in this journey of life! She genuinely cares about people, and wants to bring joy to others through her work.
