About Lauren

Hi, my name is Lauren.

I am the heart and the name behind Refined Gifting and Refined Heart Living. I want to let you know how grateful I am that you are here! Please take some time to read through and get to know the lady behind the business as I share a little bit more about myself.


I am a creative, business minded gal that went from the corporate world craziness, to entrepreneur, starting my own business with the guidance of God’s hand.

My husband, Corey and I have been married for just over two years. It was evident from the beginning that God was at the center!

I'm from Ohio but after living in the city in Portland, OR for two years, I went to suburb lake living in Lakewood, OH to now living in what feels like a "small town" in Lima, OH.
We recently moved to an old 1936 home and have been doing updates!


I love writing, reading all the books & my bible, spending time with family, friends & my husband, good coffee, tea & tea cups, all things sweet, tending to my flowers & garden, holy yoga and listening & speaking truth into people. My husband and I are passionate about small business, revitalization of the town, opening our home & hearts, loving and serving well.

I love Jesus and encouraging women about how God works to refine our hearts and lives to be more like Him. I love seeing God’s hand in my story and how the heart of my business is so closely intertwined with my faith!
