Laurie Thompson is a modern miracle! Severely injured in an auto crash, she has risen above the ashes to become a radiant wife, mother, and gifted singer. Her spirit is sweet and her singing a blessing. I was impressed with her kind and unassuming manner and believe [she] will be a blessing to the churches who will use her.
