Lara Capuano is a story-teller.  Whether it’s blogging, sharing her heart with her small group, or talking with strangers over coffee, her honesty, insightfulness and wit communicate deep truths that anyone could understand and relate to.  She is now bringing theological truths, life stories and humor to camps, conferences, retreats, schools, and churches.  

Lara shares stories about raising adopted kids and navigating “open” adoptions.  She speaks from personal experience about tragedy and life after loss. 

Her story is the story of God redeeming yesterday and today’s junk into tomorrow’s beauty.  

Lara lives in Rochester, New York with her husband and hero, Tom and her five kids, Annalee, Marlie, Harper, London and Jay.
