Lara Veve oversees the Women’s Community at Flatirons Community Church in Lafayette, Colorado. She’s been married to Eric for 18 years, and they are parents to three teenagers while trying to embrace the beautiful chaos of this season of life. Sunshine, high heels, chocolate and music are some of her favorite things. The best part of her job is the opportunity to observe life transformation as people bump into Jesus and realize they are free, forgiven, valuable and seen.
IF YOU HAVE EVER FELT LIKE LIFE’S CIRCUMSTANCES WERE STANDING IN THE WAY OF YOUR DREAM, THIS WAS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
In this interview, Lara talks about the big dreams she had as a child and how those plans got upset by life’s circumstances. She shares about her fears that make her want to live “inside the box.” She also offers an important reminder that we need to pay attention to the things that make our heart beat a little faster because that’s often where God has planted our dreams.
Lara’s story is a such a great example of God’s timing being the best timing. I can’t wait for you to hear it from her!
