Hi I’m Laurie Short.
Some of you might remember me from my Youth Specialties speaking days, and the books I published (under Polich) for youth workers and kids. But a few things have happened since that time:
1. I moved to Santa Barbara, and currently work part time at OceanHills Covenant Church: http://www.oceanhills.org/
3. I published a book 3 years ago called Finding Faith in the Dark, with an 8 week video study that accompanies it (see promo here: https://laurieshort.com/books-videos/), and I just released a new book called When Changing Nothing Changes Everything (http://amzn.to/2mQsyA8)
My first book wrestled with where God is in dark times; When Changing Nothing Changes Everything shows how broadening your vision reveals the bigger purpose of your life. In it, I introduce four lenses that will expand the way you see.
I am passionate about encouraging people in their faith through my speaking, and would love to come to your church or conference to speak. With my new book release, I am creating messages around the theme of “Developing Eyes of Faith,” and I am very excited about helping people see their lives differently. You can find info about my speaking and books on the other pages of my website, so take a look around and make yourself at home. The website will be changing soon, so be sure to check back over the next couple months. I would also love you to subscribe to my blog (I post every 2-3 weeks)… and Email me or my assistant Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to inquire about having me come and speak.
