Happy Spring! It's the first day of Spring - and I'd like to personally ask you for prayer. Next week (beginning at 6:00 AM March 28th) we are holding our Spring Friendraiser. It's a call to everyone who has never before partnered with Joy - or perhaps it has just been a long time since you've committed to financially supporting this incredible ministry. Please pray for both your heart and the hearts of others to be willing to join in what God is doing through WOLC and The Manna.

Laura Story

Laura's voice is familiar in the Christian music world. She's been nominated twice as Female Vocalist of the Year at the Dove Awards. She wrote the No. 1 worship hit “Indescribable” recorded in 2004 by Chris Tomlin. She leads a women's ministry through the mega-Perimeter Church in Atlanta and her lyrics have permeated North American Church culture. But despite great success, she's had her trying times.

Shortly after marrying Martin Elvinton in 2006, Laura's husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor, kept alive at one point by breathing machines. How did these newly-weds survive? “Life is filled with things you don’t expect, but the Bible tells us to respond by trusting God and continuing to worship him,” Laura boldly states.

Her husband has since had a full healing and recovery, but through the scary times Laura wrote an album full of the hope that comes from faith. Blessings hits shelves in just a couple of weeks!

Offstage, she and Martin love to be outdoors, riding bikes or trekking their way through the book 50 Hikes in North Georgia.

Latest Album: Blessings (due out April 12th)


Scriptural Pursuit

Q: Which Gospel records the graves opening after Jesus' death on the cross?
