I believe we all have a yearning to feel whole. But we don't have to escape ordinary life to find the largeness within. It is located right here, in the peaks and valleys of the everyday.
I’m Lara Charles - a mama to four kiddos, a writer and a truth-seeker. I write at the intersection of spirituality and modern life, using words as a bridge home to our truest selves. I write to share my way out of suffering - both my own and the world's. My writing has been featured nationally and internationally. Read my reflections here.
Who are my words for? Anyone who longs to know if there is more to life and is searching for meaning (especially in the face of a big life challenge such as cancer or, let's face it, motherhood). So if you're a seeking woman (or man) like me - trying to fit spirituality between doctor appointments, work and shuttling the kids to school - I get it, welcome. My words are for you.
The Unglamorous and Very Ordinary Pursuit of Wholeness: A Memoir is a story of finding the freedom that was hidden in my pocket all along. It is a story of life, love, motherhood, illness, transformation and finding the extraordinary in the ordinary.

“What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.”
