Laurie was born and raised in Miles City, MT. She received Jesus as her Lord and Savior at a very young age. While attending a Christian school, at the age of 5, she was baptized in the Holy Spirit. Her parents were pastors for 16 years, so naturally she grew up serving in the church. After graduating high school, Laurie moved to Cleveland, TN where she attended New Life Bible College. While at Bible College, she fully committed her life to God’s service. Upon graduation, she was ordained as a minister of the gospel and is currently licensed with New Life Church. While at college, she met and fell in love with Danny Houde. They got married in 1995 and began their new life together.

Laurie is passionate about her love for God, her love for others and very passionate about raising her children to wholeheartedly know & serve God. She desires to see the power of the Holy Spirit working not only in her life, but also in the lives of those around her. When asked about her future hopes and dreams, she responded with, “I dream of ministering side by side with my husband, my children, and the other great men and women of God that are in my life as God opens the doors.”

Interests:  spending time with her family, having friends over, taking pictures, gardening, going on bike rides, playing sports, exercising, and talking about God.
