After almost losing her husband to a brain tumor in 2006, Laura Story’s song “Blessings” was written as a reminder that God remains faithful even when things don’t turn out the way we expect them to.
“Life is filled with things you don’t expect, but the Bible tells us to respond by trusting God and continuing to worship Him,” Laura reflects on the experience. “God has grown us up, deepened our faith, our awareness of our great need for Him as a savior, daily. We knew it before, but we didn’t see it.”
The song ended up earning her a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song in 2012 and in addition to touching millions of lives musically, Laura went on to write a 30-day devotional book based on the song. Her husband’s struggles have provided the basis for many of the songs off her album Blessings which involves a complete surrender to God’s plans as well as redefining exactly what “blessings” really are. The album also features "What a Savior" and is a follow up to her debut, Great God Who Saves, which featured “Mighty To Save.”
Laura also works at her church, Perimeter Church, in Atlanta, Georgia doing music and women’s ministry while hiking and bike riding on trails throughout Georgia in her spare time.
Laura and her husband Martin recently welcomed their first child named Josephine Grace Elvington on September 14, 2012.
The singer is also nominated for two K-LOVE fan awards: "Female Artist of the Year," and "Breakthrough Artist of the Year."
