“Laura’s seminars made a good cruise great! It is so refreshing to learn about sexual responses / differences, communication, and even anatomy from a source that is not raunchy or too revealing.

“Thank you for all of your wonderful teachings on the cruise. I had been looking forward to meeting you for a long time, and learning more from you. You exceeded my expectations!

“I knew Laura would be a great presenter, but I was really surprised at how good her presentation really was.

I feel that the standing ovation that the crowd gave Laura and her husband was very much deserved.”

— ACME Conf, July 2007

“I was so impressed with Laura. Nothing seemed to ruffle her feathers. Laura must have a real gift. She is so well read and informed about almost everything it seems, and the information she needed appeared at her finger tips in seconds. I don’t think she even knows how to say the word um!”

— Couples Cruise, Feb 2007

“I have been attending Education Week for over a decade and Laura ranks among the best instructors and best courses. She did an extraordinary job on a difficult but important topic. She was exquisitely prepared, had substantial clinical knowledge, was well versed in gospel and scriptural writings, and presented to the class as accessibly as possible. This class ranks among the best I have taken at Education Week from any instructor. She was very candid yet respectful, providing information students were hungry for.”
