Laura Whorley


I have been a nurse for 15 years. Two very opposite and amazing girls & a sweet pup call me Mom. My hobbies are attempting to grow things, crafts & cooking. As a child, I wanted two things when I grew up: 1) to be a farmer’s wife & 2) to be a missionary. I am far from a farmer’s wife, but we do have chickens & a garden…so that’s close-ish. As far as being a missionary goes, I have not travelled to far off lands and embraced the language & culture in effort to show God’s love to others. Nope. I have stayed home. In the past, I worked as a camp counselor at a Christian summer camp (long, long ago) & taught Sunday school. Most recently, I am enjoying learning more about God and the life He desires for me to live. I do believe that my mission field is at home - homeschooling – as instructed by God.
