The details of her life have been heard and revered by millions. Join Tim on this episode of RUHM Podcast, for the gripping story of Lauri Burns, a woman of extraordinary resilience and compassion, who turned her harrowing personal journey into a mission of love, founding The Teen Project to give homeless and at-risk young adults a fighting chance at a better future.
As chronicled in her first book, Punished for Purpose, Lauri shares her heart-wrenching yet not uncommon story of an abused child relinquished to the system, turned prostitute and heroin addict, and left for dead by gang members after a brutal abduction. In a second chance at life, Lauri finds sobriety and fated help from strangers, which allow her to begin accepting assignments from the universe and finding her purpose.
Join us as we discuss what it takes to change your life, turning ashes into opportunities, the powerful effects of letting go, and finding empowerment in your own story.
It is with these guiding principles that Lauri has been blessed to raise 46 foster children, generate $62MM for her foundation, cause a ripple effect of saving lives, and find gratitude for even the darkest moments that have inspired her to be the light and change she wants for the world.
