When Lauren’s husband left her after just a few months of marriage, she was devastated and very vulnerable. At first she just wanted to hide away, but her friend Emily came alongside her, encouraged her and supported her. She invited Lauren to her Life Group, where Lauren discovered what true love looks like. In time Lauren gave her life to Jesus.

“I’ve learned that there’s power in sharing our vulnerability and weaknesses,” Lauren says, because it allows us to recognise and share how powerful God has been in our lives.
