Laura Hawthorne Interview

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND?

Laura: I knew at the very young age of 5 years old that I wanted to become a professional singer. Originally from Wilmington, Delaware, I spent my elementary years singing in school plays, local tv shows, talent contests and many other events. I attended Catholic school and always felt best singing in church. When I was 16 years old, I gave my heart to the Lord during a crusade in my hometown. I knew He was calling me that day. I will never forget it. TELL US ABOUT YOUR WALK WITH THE LORD. After I became saved, I kept a bible in my car on the dashboard. It was there so long it got bleached out by the sun. I rarely opened it. But I was a cool Christian teenager with her Bible displayed as protection. Following high school I went to college in Maryland and earned my AA Degree in Dental Hygiene, and immediately moved to New York City hoping to become a recording artist. For 11 years I worked in Manhattan, experiencing what the big city had to offer struggling artists and I grew tremendously as a vocalist. One of the things I enjoyed doing was singing the National Anthem for the New York Mets for 10 years. During my years in the city, I attended different churches but never became grounded in any of them. My walk with the Lord was always compromised. My career had become an idol.

HOW DID THE LORD CALL YOU INTO MINISTRY?

Laura: As I was releasing my first secular CD in 2000, my younger brother, Jay, fell and broke his neck at the C2 level during a terrible construction accident. This left him a ventilator dependent quadriplegic. Life changed in an instant. Immediately I dropped my singing career, ran home to Delaware and spent time by my brother’s bedside as he endured tremendous pain and suffering. It was then that I questioned the way I had been living my life. The Lord opened my eyes. This horrific tragedy is what made me realize that the Lord was calling me into ministry. My brother is my personal hero. He is my inspiration to sing and lead others to Christ. I share his story with others when I minister and many cover him in prayer.

HOW WOULD YOU SUMMERIZE YOUR LIFE NOW AND YOUR MINISTRY?

Laura: I see God’s purpose in my life more clearly now than ever. God’s perfect plan had come full circle. Now I'm following "His"direction, not mine. Living a holy life and serving Him with the gifts He has given me is my focus. He has brought so much healing and restoration to my life. My spiritual growth has been incredible and I know it's due to my willingness to be obedient and disciplined. I am excited to share my testimony with others encouraging them not to make the same mistakes I've made. I have been called to EMPOWER and ENCOURAGE others who need hope and healing in their lives.”
Through my music ministry, “Livin’ In His Love Ministries”, I travel as a worship leader and speaker in churches, revivals, women’s events,conventions and many other functions.

WHAT IS CURRENTLY ON YOUR IPOD?

Laura: I have lots of worship songs and background tracks that I travel with when I sing. My favorite ones are "The More I Seek You" and "Revelation Song".

WHAT IS THE LAST BOOK YOU READ?

Laura: I'm actually reading it now. Joyce Meyer - "If Not For The Grace of God". Learnin' alot from this book! It's great. I recommend it to everyone.

DO YOU HAVE ANY PETS?

Laura: C'mon now.....are you serious?? Everyone knows about "Pinkie". She's my Chihuahua.
And the best Chihuahua in the entire universe. God would agree with me on this one.
You have to meet her. You can actually get a glimpse of her making a cameo appearance on my Inside the Music video.
