Award-winning singer/songwriter and worship leader Laura Story will share her story as one of the events for women taking place during General Assembly. During a lunch and program on June 22, Story will share songs and stories at the Renaissance Riverview Plaza Hotel in Mobile.
Story is the senior worship leader at Perimeter Presbyterian Church in Atlanta. She wrote the Chris Tomlin hit “Indescribable,” and won Dove, Billboard, and GRAMMY awards for her 2011 album “Blessings” and its title song.
Early in her marriage, Story’s husband, Martin Elvington, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Surgeons removed the tumor, but Elvington has lingering disabilities. Their journey of learning to trust God’s goodness in the face of challenging circumstances inspired the song “Blessings.”
Story will share with the women of General Assembly about how she developed a deeper intimacy with God when He did not fix her problems. In addition to her music projects, Story has written a book, When God Doesn’t Fix It, in which she shares how God uses our weakness and suffering for His glory.
