Laura Weber is an engineer by training. She has two bachelor’s degrees and one master’s degree.
In high school, reading and writing were her most challenging subjects and took remedial reading and writing during her first year of college. The landing of her first job sparked her passion for writing.
She worked for a Tribal government. Her position was funded by government grants. Laura learned how to effectively write grants to secure funding for her position. After fifteen years of grant writing, she moved to the private sector to begin writing proposals to win jobs for her current employer. These experiences prepared Laura to write her first book titled “In His Hands, I Am Healed.”
Laura’s purpose in life is to show others that we all can live thriving lives amid the raging storms that swirl around us. Laura is living proof that this is possible. She survived five cancer diagnoses in as many years and is a walking testimony to God’s grace and goodness.
She thanks God for allowing her to go through the cancer journey. He was with her all the time, even when she didn’t know it. Her faith grew during the journey. She knows things about God that she otherwise wouldn’t have learned without the journey. After her fifth diagnosis, she prayed the following prayer everyday “I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord.” She wrote In His Hands, I Am Healed to declare God’s miraculous works in her life because she lives.
In addition to writing, Laura is an avid fitness nut. She enjoys running, strength training, and swimming. Laura believes that we reap what we sow in our bodies regarding nutrition and fitness. Because of her battle with cancer, she made drastic changes to her eating and fitness workouts.
