Laura is a Jesus girl! She is the real thing & always speaks truth to us women. She not only knows the scriptures she breathes & lives God's word! She is transparent, faithful, obedient, loving, kind, & loves our God above everything.. I know when I hear her teach I am hearing what God has laid on her heart & it is truth delivered with love, care & concern for our spiritual walk.

Brooke Thompson, Director of Women's Ministries

It was such a delight to have Laura as the speaker for our women’s retreat. She reached the hearts of so many women by her authentic and genuine message. Her love for the Lord shines through her and encompasses everyone she meets. So many relationships were built that weekend that are still growing strong to this day. Laura’s “Be Brave” message met each woman exactly where they were and they still speak of how her message is forever engraved on their hearts. Laura is such a blessing to the women of our church and we are beyond grateful that the Lord brought her to us.

I have heard Laura speak several times now. Her sense of humor enabled me to relate to her right from the beginning but her willingness to be transparent on tough topics really helped me grow in my understanding of myself and The Lord. Her points are direct, precise and well thought out. I will be seeking out other opportunities to hear her speak.

Laura Acuna has an amazing ability to immediately connect with her audience. She shares about her personal experiences and all the lessons God has taught her along the way. She will have you laughing one minute and wiping your eyes the next. Laura is relatable, as so much of what she says hits home in some way with her audience. She encourages them to do the work required to move forward with what God has planned, and she gives Scripture to back up what she says. I especially love her Clean Slate retreat. You will leave knowing God is never done with you! What a wonderful messenger of God!

We had the opportunity to spend the weekend with Laura Acuna at our Women’s Retreat. Laura’s message was powerful and informative. Her ability to relate scripture with “Life” events is inspiring. Laura’s love for Christ was evident not only in her teaching but in her interaction with each lady that attended the retreat. Her approach is warm and kind and her ability to relate to others was evident as she shared her own life struggles. Laura has a gift for showing women how to turn their past into a “clean slate” with Christ; and to walk in the knowledge that God is always with us. We will always value the time we had with her and feel that we can call her our friend. Tammy Williford Ministry Leader "The Connection"

We laughed, we cried, and most importantly, we were changed! Our women's ministry was so blessed to have Laura present "A Clean Slate" at our recent breakfast. In this presentation, Laura shared her personal story from a place of transparency and vulnerability. Her courage to "go first" drew other women to share openly with her and with each other about their own struggles. Laura's love for God and women is obvious. She is a gifted speaker and we look forward to having her bring us God's Word again soon!

We fell in love with Laura! So sweet, humble, and transparent. We had ladies from their 20's to their 60's. Her message was applicable to everyone and all of us walked away feeling uplifted and closer to God. Laura was great to work with on the planning side too. She offered multiple suggestions to make our retreat more meaningful.

I find Ms. Laura Acuna to be very relevant and relatable in her speaking topics. She conveys a vulnerable honesty that draws you in as a listener and you come away wiser as a result of the experiences she shares, because you feel as though you've experienced them yourself. Her love for the Lord, and her heart for women is evident from the first minute you meet her. She approaches every topic prayerfully, and it shows!

Michele Rennolds, Women's Retreat Steering Team

Planning a women’s retreat with Laura Acuna is a blessing that will stay with me for years to come. Aside from her topic that was perfect for our group and her generosity in planning our retreat, it was the fellowship that we shared that made the greatest impact. Laura’s love for the Lord is evident in all that she says and does. Her knowledge of scripture showed me how passionate she is about her calling and her warm, loving personality made me want to be her friend. Her story is one that every woman can relate to. All of Laura’s qualities translated into an extraordinary event that made every woman feel loved. Michele Rennolds Women's Retreat Steering Team, Calvary United Methodist Church

Laura Acuna is uplifting, funny and REAL. She is a woman who has struggled with many of the same issues many women have experienced. She is honest about her struggles and her speaking leaves you feeling inspired and more importantly...okay. I have heard Laura speak on several occasions and would attend her speaking engagements over and over again. She loves the Lord with all her heart and she wants all women to know Him deeply.
