Ministry vision & purpose

  “Nearly all wisdom we possess, that is to say, true and sound wisdom, consists in two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves…There is no deeper knowing of God without a deep knowing of self and no deep knowing of self without a deep knowing of God.”

John Calvin

lt took me many years to realize that knowing about God, Jesus Christ, and the Bible are not the same as knowing God, Jesus Christ, and the Bible. Once I began to see that disconnect, however, I was not sure how to fix it, or the mother, wife, and human I wished I could become.

Laura Sandretti Ministries exists to provide encouragement and practical tips to help bridge that divide. Laura’s Spirit-empowered writing and speaking are meant to broaden our understanding of ourselves and the Lord in a way that impacts how we think, perceive ourselves and others, and respond to both because of Jesus Christ. His finished work on the cross is not abstract hope for “good Christians.” It is felt peace and freedom that is meant to be realized in every Christ-followers’ actual, abundant life.

 Little about Laura…

I am… biracial or as our kids call us, “racially ambiguous.”

I am… the daughter of a 5’1” Japanese mother and a 6’ 3” German/Irish father.

I am… a woman who met my husband at McDonald’s (where we worked together).

I am… the mother to two beautiful (sometimes sassy) daughters, and one handsome, son (who loves a good debate!).

I am… the middle child between two brothers.

I am… a cyclist, photographer, and coffee addict.

I am… above all things, accepted, loved, and delighted in by King Jesus. <3  

Laura Sandretti and Family

“Grace must find expression in life, otherwise it is not grace.”
~ Karl Barth

“Faith’s only function is to receive what grace offers.”
~ John Stott

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
~ Titus 3:4-5

Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?
~ Romans 2:4

“Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”
2 Timothy 2:1
