Laurel was sitting in her 2nd period Psychology class in high school when the loudspeaker announcement was made that she would be giving the high school graduation speech. The guy sitting behind her (who had been sitting behind her all year long) said, “Who the heck is Laurel Christensen?” The question haunted her for a long time. It's easy for girls to confuse or simply not know their identity in this world today. Drawing on life experiences, Laurel shares a message for all young women that God knows who they are — and He knows who He needs them to be.
