Hey there awesome, amazing, abundant friend! How did I know? Well because I only have awesome, amazing and abundant friends and I’m sure you are one of them. I wish we were meeting over a cup of tea and a gluten-free pastry, if you ever come to beautiful Bend, OR I’d love to treat you.
I am Laney and I love to create more fun, more healing, more health and more ways to unleash these things in your life and mine. I used to be stressed out, overwhelmed, depressed and sick all the time, but I’d had enough of that and after a month in inpatient treatment I decided to do my life differently. I got out of there and later off of the dozens of drugs for depression, anxiety, overwhelm and my auto-immune disease and decided that my God is the author of resurrection and I wanted that kind of power in my life. So…after losing everything, my marriage, my home, my business, my career, my friends, my kids, living by myself not knowing what was coming next, I rose up stronger and better than before. I watched in awe of myself and God as my marriage was restored, my family became fun and I learned how to love my actual life. I mean really. love. my. life. I learned that when I took responsibility for myself and my circumstances everything changed for the better. I had no idea life could be this good!
Over the years I’ve accumulated a few degrees and certifications that have helped me help myself and others. I have a degree in Nutrition which is awesome for helping me understand my autoimmune disease, called Ulcerative Colitis, from a different framework than just meds, meds, meds. I have a Masters Degree in Pastoral Studies which gave me a passion for the Word of God and His people. A few years later I got Masters Degree in Counseling which gave me a deeper understanding of why we do what we do. I have been certified in a few different trauma resolution therapies including EMDR and eating disorder therapy…did I mention I struggled a long time with all kinds of crazy emotional eating? This is a probably good place to mention that. I have a certificate in Positive Psychology, know more about the gut than most Western doctors and I’m a certified Health Coach and a Certified Life Coach…I know, I know it’s a lot, but I love learning. I read just about a book a week and geek out with whatever brain and neuroscience I can find. We really do have the capacity to change our brains just like God said!
I’ve been gluten-free, dairy-free and mostly sugar-free for over 25 years….thank you for joining me because there are so many more amazing options to eat now thanks to all of you! True story…in 2000 I was featured in a Channel 4 News Story when I was at the Old Spaghetti Factory because I ordered chicken and broccoli instead of pasta….who knew?
I saved the best for last….the absolute best things in my life are my peeps…I have the most amazing husband, he changed when I changed and we rose up from the ashes stronger and better than ever, he’s my bestie and my partner in crime, life, and hiking for over 31 years-I know what you’re thinking but we got married when I was 12 (wink, wink). And my three grown kids are phenomenal, I have no idea how they got that way but they are some of the most amazing people I have ever met.
So that’s me….and I was serious about the gluten-free treats and tea….if you ever travel to Bend contact me and we can do this whole thing over a great cup of tea! I love tea, actually truth be told I’m a tea snob and love great tea!
Oh and I almost forgot….I’d love to inspire, empower and coach you to live into your one amazing life too. If you are ready to take massive action and have an abundant life you love contact me via my contact page with the subject line…I’m ready to take action!
