Lauren's best-selling book, The Art of Helping – What to Say and Do When Someone is Hurting, is a practical hands-on guide to use in any daily situation. Endorsed by nationally known speakers such as Emilie Barnes, Patsy Clairmont, Marilyn Heavilin and Gayle Roper, this book demonstrates the lost art of graciousness and compassion — a much needed essential in today’s busy world.
Lauren is multi-faceted with interests in music, theater, literature and history. Lauren’s particular gift is her insight into people’s strengths and weaknesses and motivating them to positive action. Blended with her spiritual depth, her most important ability is to see heartache and concern in people’s lives and minister to them compassionately.
Heart for Women and Family
With a true heart for women and the family, Lauren has traveled many paths – speaking, singing and writing — and has nurtured many others along her life’s journey. Lauren reflects her motto, “Every Day is a Gift,” in her personal involvement with others and to large and small audiences across the country. She lovingly and truly walks her talk as she speaks and writes on topics such as, parenting, marriage, helping, contentment and choices.
"Some people have the touch...the healing touch of sensitivity, availability, and dependability. Lean in and learn from one who does—Lauren Briggs."
Patsy Clairmont, Women of Faith Speaker
"Over the years I have observed Lauren’s compassionate spirit and willingness to be a light in someone’s time of darkness. Lauren writes and speaks from heartfelt experience and has an avid interest in helping each one of us to help others. We may not know what to do or say, but Lauren does."
Florence Littauer, “Personality Plus,” “Silver Boxes”
"You are so polished! You and your book are shining stars. It maximizes my media network when I can offer a wide range of credible resources—and those resources deliver! Thank you."
June Durr, Marketing & Publications Manager
"...so many times I am frozen and feel helpless and a failure. Your suggestions were so liberating to me."
"Lauren taught me much about what helps us during difficult and challenging times. I would have loved for all my friends to have her book, The Art of Helping, during my five years fighting cancer. This book should be on everyone’s bookshelf for reference and to be shared with the hurting."
Emilie Barnes, “More Hours in My Day”
"Lauren’s message provides common sense and sensitive ways we can provide meaningful encouragement to those who need our help when we don’t know what to do."
Marilyn Heavilin, “Roses in December”
