Finding a Balance is Lauren’s second book of poetry, following New Day, New Dreams published in 2013. This compilation speaks often of her emotions and spirit after finding out about a life threatening disease two years ago in one of her family members. There is no devastating ending in the near future but many unanswered questions that will plague her family indefinitely. In contrast to this sadness, Lauren has always possessed a romantic soul and is blessed to have celebrated twenty six happy years of marriage to her husband and best friend. So from darkness to finding the light again through faith and adding a touch of romance, she finds strength to move forward. This book takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of different emotions evoked from life and love but regardless of what is thrown in her path, hope will always prevail.
Lauren Scott writes from the heart about life, love and faith. Her passion for reading and writing poetry has forever been strong, but for the past three years, she has been sharing her writing publicly on her poetry blog, lscotthoughts.com. Her wish is that her words permeate deeply into the emotions of her readers; making them smile, laugh, sigh or even shed a tear… She resides in northern California with her husband, two children off at college and her chocolate lab.
