There’s a good reason why Pregnancy Centers, churches and other ministries love working with Lauren Roman, and why audiences rave about her captivating presentations. It’s her passion! Lauren is passionately dedicated to helping each ministry partner have their best event yet, and giving every audience a transformative experience.
Not only is 2020 Lauren’s 4th consecutive year as a Top 7 Pro-Life Fundraising Speaker, she is quickly becoming a sought-after speaker for women’s and youth events, retreats and conferences. As she transparently shares her heart and brings Biblical truths to life with her energetic and engaging style, she motivates audiences to put their faith into action.
Lauren’s mission is rooted in a powerful personal testimony. She began her professional acting career at just 19 with a starring role on the ABC soap opera “All My Children,” and went on to appear in TV shows, including “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Everything seemed perfect. But behind the scenes, industry pressure triggered an eating disorder and depression, rooted in her guilt over an abortion at age 18.
Ultimately, Lauren found forgiveness and freedom at a Pregnancy Resource Center and discovered her true purpose: sharing the truth of Galatians 5:1 freedom! She began speaking for the Center's sexual integrity program and became a fervent advocate for life-affirming ministries that empower women.
Over the course of 80+ events, Lauren has raised millions of dollars for PRCs and encouraged thousands of women, men and youth to pursue the freedom and abundant life found only in Christ. An accomplished singer and worship leader, she weaves music into her messages to connect with listeners on a profound level. Lauren's independently released EP “Songs of Hope and Healing” is a valuable resource for post-abortion and other recovery ministries.
Now based in Nashville TN, Lauren has continued acting in the southeast region, with supporting roles in TV (ABC's "Nashville") and film (“Grace Unplugged”). But her greatest joy and fulfillment is found speaking and singing wherever God leads, raising support for Pregnancy Centers and encouraging audiences to pursue abundant life in Christ.
Lauren’s unforgettable beauty-from-ashes story is both an inspiration and a stirring call to action for us all. www.laurenroman.com
