Providing encouragement with heartfelt messages and practical presentations

Meet Lauren

Through her speaking and writing, Lauren encourages people with her heartfelt messages and practical presentations.

Lauren watched two younger brothers struggle with a degenerative neural disease. One brother died at the age of 2, the second brother lived to be 19.

Lauren is a co-founder and is currently the Chapter Leader of her local Compassionate Friends. Lauren has her BA degree in Psychology specializing in Child Development.

She is the author of The Art of Helping – What to say and Do When Someone is Hurting. Based on her book, her message is one of awareness for what people need when they are going through difficult times.



As the oldest daughter of nationally known speaker and author, Florence Littauer, Lauren comes by her speaking and writing talents naturally.

Her 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 a wide variety of daily situations. Endorsed by nationally known speakers such as Emilie Barnes, Patsy Clairmont, and Marilyn Heavilin, this book demonstrates the lost art of graciousness and compassion—a much needed essential in today’s busy world.

Lauren teamed with Florence and Marita Littauer, her mother and sister, to write another must-have book, Making The Blue Plate Special –The Joy of Family Legacies. This step-by-step resource encourages families to enjoy and preserve their family traditions as well as create new ones.

She is also a contributing author to Open to Hope.

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."

Gayle Davies

"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”
