Choose Conference

choose logo

Each of us has been blessed with the gift of free will. This gift means that we all have choices to make… from the moment we wake up in the morning until our head hits the pillow at night. Some of those choices are big and some are small, but they are all choices. Each of the choices we make determines our story.

What do you want your story to be? 

The Choose Conference will inspire those in attendance to discover the power of making Godly choices that will guide them on their life journey.

About Laura Frankl Pedersen

IMG_4029_mimikacooney_pedersen_low.jpgLaura is a certified business coach with ActionCOACH – Siouxland. She is also a certified speaker, coach, and teacher with the John Maxwell team.

In 2011 after losing her dad and sister, Laura found herself called to continue her sister Sara’s spirit lead discipleship of Choose Joy.

After walking a path through the publishing industry, Laura and her family were blessed in 2016 with the release of Sara’s book, co-authored by Mary Carver, Choose Joy: Finding Hope and Purpose When Life Hurts. The book is based on Sara’s writings about her journey to discover joy. 

Since the book release, Laura has also published a study guide and DVD to accompany the book.

In addition to sharing Sara’s legacy of choosing, Laura also shares her own life’s journey with divorce and breast cancer. It is during our hardest times that we experience our greatest growth if we choose to surrender ourselves to God and trust in His will.
