Do you have a nickname? It’s not a nickname exactly, but in our family, and with my close friends, I’m known as “Idea Woman”.
I’ve shared before that husband John says the first line of the 4 Spiritual Laws should really read: God loves you and LAURA has a wonderful plan for your life!
So, I’ll admit that there are people who see me coming with that “IDEA gleam” in my eye and are tempted to run away.
The other thing I’m accused of is
grilling asking a lot of questions of people I meet. Frankly, besides wanting to be a spy, I also want to be Katie Couric (and yes, look like her too).
All that to say, I’m really excited about an idea I had for a new blog series called “5 Questions About….” I have so many incredibly talented friends that I thought, what if I send some of them 5 questions about different topics that they have great insights on?
So, one day weekly til l run out of friends or topics, we’ll be doing 5 Questions About… Leadership, Hospitality, Singleness, God’s plans, Mentoring, Risk, etc. (I’ll alternate these with One Word posts.)

Everyone is an expert at something. Who is someone with a gift or a skill you’d like to learn from? Give them a call today and set up a time for coffee. You might say, “I really admire your understanding of ________ and I’d love to learn from you. Could we spend an hour together?” Everyone likes to share their knowledge and experience!
There’s so much we can learn from each other!
Proverbs 23:12 says, Give yourselves to disciplined instruction; open your ears to tested knowledge.
