About Lauren

Hi, my name is Lauren. I am the heart and the name behind Refined Heart Living and Refined Gifting. I want to let you know how grateful I am that you are here!

  • I am a creative, business minded gal that went from the corporate world craziness, to entrepreneur, starting my own business with the guidance of God’s hand.

  • I'm from Ohio but after living in the city in Portland, OR for two years, I went to suburb lake living in Lakewood, OH to now living in what feels like a "small town" in Lima, OH. We recently moved to an old 1936 home and have been doing updates!

  • My now husband, Corey and I have been married for just over two years. It was evident from the beginning that God was at the center!

  • I love writing, reading all the books & my bible, spending time with family, friends & my husband, good coffee, tea & tea cups, all things sweet, tending to my flowers & garden, holy yoga and listening & speaking truth into people. My husband and I are passionate about small business, revitalization of the town, opening our home & hearts, loving and serving well.

  • I love Jesus and encouraging women about how God works to refine our hearts and lives to be more like Him. I love seeing God’s hand in my story and how the heart of my business is so closely intertwined with my faith!
