Hello, I’m Marian. I am passionate about Jesus and helping women experience the victorious Christian life in Him. Jesus rescued me when I was in my mid-twenties, and I live to lead other women to my Redeemer. As the founder of This Redeemed Life, I share my story at events both domestically and internationally.

Friends, I’m a Bible teacher at heart. I am proof that God’s Word can transforms us from the inside out. I’m a graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and I served on the Bible teaching team of Second Baptist Church in Houston for many years. Today I am the Director of Women’s Ministry at Mission City Church in San Antonio, where I lead a monthly night of worship and Bible study for the women of our city called TueGather.

You can find my Bible teachings on our App or YouTube channel. I am the author of seven books for women and my first Bible study, For His Glory releases this year. Today I live in San Antonio, Texas, with my husband, Justin, three children (Andrew, Brenden, and Sydney) and one very spoiled dog, London.

Hi, I’m Lauren! I’m the Executive Director of This Redeemed Life. I’m a graduate of The University of Texas at San Antonio. After serving four years as a public school teacher in the inner-city, the Lord called me into full-time ministry with TRL.  Jesus used this ministry to radically heal my soul and set my heart on fire for God. My redemption story testifies to God’s incredible power to bring beauty from ashes. I am a two-time graduate of Redeemed Institute and love planning our events for other women to experience God’s grace and truth. 

I love riding horses, reading discipleship books, spending time with my large circle of friends, and I adore spending time with children. I’m passionate for women of all ages to experience the redemptive work of Christ.  You can reach me at lauren@thisredeemedlife.org.
