Meet the Team

We desire to passionately pursue the heart of God with our whole lives…. mind, body, heart, and soul. We believe God has a good design for sexuality that He clearly communicates it in His Word. As a ministry, we are getting to the heart of the Christian sexual ethic through in-person events and online resources. 

Psalm 119:9, “How can a young person keep his way pure, by living according to your Word.”

Laura Coulier

Team Member

Laura believes free people are called to free people, and you’ll find her doing just that on a regular basis by sharing her journey, her flaws, and the hope she’s found in Jesus. Growing up as the “good church kid,” she struggled to separate the quest for perfection from the merciful savior she’d hear about while sitting through five church services a week. Since encountering the true love of God, she is committed to helping others trapped either in cycles of religiosity or those running far from it. She can often be found at local coffee shops, catching up with friends or, on occasion, strangers. She joined Across My Heart Ministries in 2010, sharing her testimony on retreats and writing about God’s truth for identity, culture, and life struggles in general.
