Working with Women to help them reach their fullest potential in Mind, Body, and Spirit.
God is always after intimacy with us, gently and consistently whispering the invitation to get close enough to hear His heart.

aboutFestival in the Desert
Life is often filled with trial, heartache, grief, and struggle. But, perhaps there’s a treasure to be found in those difficult seasons and that treasure is intimacy with God Himself. That should be reason enough to rejoice. So, how do we take God’s command to Pharaoh in Exodus 5 to “Let my people go so they may hold a festival for me in the desert” as a holy invitation to be stripped down and made whole, while still worshipping the one who allows the stripping?
Through vulnerable and transparent stories, Laureen Alexa Trujillo shares her personal testimony of hardship and trial and all that God taught her through suffering. She highlights the faithfulness of God and brings attention to the purpose of her struggle: To learn dependency on God by being exposed to the barrenness of the desert, surrender the false comfort of our personal Egypt, and come out stronger and more refined for the Promise Land we were created to inherit.
Through Festival in the Desert Laureen walks you through the question that confronted her: how do we learn and truly embrace the fact that God can and will work all things together for good as we seek Him and choose to love Him through uncertainty, fear, and hardship? The stories and interactive prompts will point us to the heart of the Father, reminding us that God is faithful, present, trustworthy, and more than capable of making a way for us when there doesn’t seem to be one, ushering in freedom, comfort, and renewed hope.

Hello Sweet Friend,
Let me start off by saying that I wish you were sitting across from me in some quaint little coffee shop somewhere in the city, with a mug in hand and possibly a sweet treat to go with it. We could be swapping stories and be laughing together between sips of liquid comfort, becoming the best of friends. Should we never be able to spend time like that together in person, I hope you still feel known, seen, and understood through the words you find here. That is the point. I also hope that we can connect and grow together. So, I'll go first and share a little about me.
Time with Jesus and in the Word of God is vital to spiritual growth. Take a moment to encounter God daily through scripture and prayer. To help you and encourage time at the feet of Jesus, here are devotionals that will point you to Him and the truth found in God's word. Oh, and if you're like me, don't forget the coffee.
