Author Biography

Laura’s purpose in life is to show others that we all can live thriving lives amid the raging storms that swirl around us.

Laura is living proof that this is possible. She survived five cancer diagnoses in as many years and is a walking testimony to God’s grace and goodness.

She thanks God for allowing her to go through the cancer journey. He was with her all the time, even when she didn’t know it. Her faith grew during the journey. She knows things about God that she otherwise wouldn’t have learned without the journey. After her fifth diagnosis, she prayed the following prayer everyday “I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord.”

She wrote In His Hands, I Am Healed to declare God’s miraculous works in her life because she lives.

Reviewed by Sarah Scheele for Readers' Favorite

In His Hands, I Am Healed by Laura J. Weber is a touching biographical story about the author’s four-and-a-half year battle with cancer. Written from a devout Christian perspective, the book details the difficulty of Laura’s journey through multiple surgeries and radiation treatments for recurring cancer, and her experience of God’s miraculous healing which removed a final outbreak of cancer from her body. Founded on the story of David and Goliath, which is a theme returned to frequently as a cornerstone of the book, and punctuated by “Laura’s Journey Lessons” sprinkled through the chapters to highlight the primary topics, it’s an inspirational and sincere journal that will help anyone needing God’s guidance to overcome a tough situation in their lives.

In His Hands, I Am Healed walks us through every step of one woman’s amazing experience so that all can share it with her and apply it to what they are going through. I found it went far beyond the subject matter of cancer by paralleling spiritual growth with each step of the medical story in an uplifting and challenging way. Laura J. Weber is upfront about the impatience and fear that comes with big struggles in life. Her good attitude and heartfelt decisions to choose faith and hope at every turn -- when she could have chosen bitterness or anger -- makes this great reading for someone going through a hard time. With a helpful list of Christian books that she found encouraging, real posts made throughout her illness on her private Facebook group, and amazing encouragers like the F.R.O.G button that inspired her (Fully Rely on God), Laura has pieced together her story into one that gave me a lot to think about and blessed me tremendously.
