Laurie Wallin is a speaker, writer and Certified Life Coach who helps people love their lives again. As mom to two former foster children deemed “failure to thrive” and “unadoptable,” she’s had to find her new normal and fight for joy. She writes weekly for her own blog (http://LaurieWallin.com), shares daily tips at Facebook’s Living Power Life Coaching (http://www.facebook.com/LivingPowerLifeCoaching), and guest blogs at Jolene Philo’s DifferentDream.com. She also loves being part of Facebook’s Moms Together team, where she gets to rile things up and rekindle joy about every aspect of motherhood. Laurie lives in Southern California with her hubby, their four girls, and her 80-lb Lab that thinks she’s a lap dog.
