About the Author

The Author: Laura Richie

Laura Richie is a wife; homeschooling mom to 3 young children; and a registered nurse.  She grew up in church (and spent several years as a missionary kid in  different countries), but she didn’t really understand Jesus or her own need to be rescued until her mid-20’s.  Before then, she tried very hard to be good enough for God and for everyone else.  When she finally realized that she can never be good enough–and that Jesus came for that very reason–her striving ceased and her dancing began!

Laura originally wrote The Advent Storybook for her own children, hoping to show them that all people need to be rescued and that Jesus is our Rescuer.  She later felt God prompting her to publish it and make the story of His rescue available for other children and families, as well.
