I am very excited to introduce Lara Marriot – singer/songwriter and one beautiful mama! Lara will be contributing monthly writing about her beautiful (and sometimes rocky) journey through motherhood. With two young school aged children, Lara has much to say about her busy life balancing family and career as she keeps Christ at the center of it all. Her music will also be featured in our Rest and Renew category. I am so honored and blessed to have Lara part of the growing Not aLone Mom team of contributors… and family! Welcome Lara!!
Lara Marriott is a singer/songwriter who leads worship alongside her husband, Brian, at theirhome church Centerpointe Presbyterian in Pleasanton, California. Lara and Brian have two elementary school aged children, Hannah and Joshua.
Lara has been in music ministry since the age of 6 as a worship pastor’s kid. She represented Canada as their World Vision Youth Ambassador in 96′ traveling and promoting peace and reconciliation with 50 other ambassadors from 50 different countries to such places as Taiwan, Mexico, Washington D.C., New York, California, Washington and Vancouver, Canada. She also traveled to Calcutta, India to be apart of Huldah Buntain’s Mission of Mercy Christmas Tree production as their special guest singer.
Lara began writing original music in 2004 and has just released her debut worship album called, “I Will Follow.”
She has a heart to encourage and minister to the church, to other women and young moms. Lara loves to crochet anything and sells her original crochet hats in a local gift shop and online. She also enjoys reading Francine River novels, teaching music, traveling, and spending time with her family.
I am excited to join the Not aLone Mom team because we all have a passion to be there for other moms and for each other. I heard one of my mom friends say that it “takes a village” to raising kids. I want to be a part of that village and pay it forward. – Lara
