I am lovely. And I'm super excited to have you on the podcast to talk about all things that do make you happy. So tell me, Laura, what does make you happy?
Laura Ann Cohn 01:02
God. God makes me happy. Being with Jesus. He is so loving and so kind and he has made my life really, really blessed and special. And I have a joy in my heart. That's amazing, because I belong to Him. And it's just great to be with Him every day and follow his lead. It's fabulous.

When did you realize that, that was a source of your happiness?
Laura Ann Cohn 01:28
Well, I think being an artist I've always been connected to God creating [phonetic 01:31]. And later in life, I was always seeking God and wanting to be with him. And a friend of mine was always talking about Jesus. And I was Jewish. And I was like, that's great. But Jews aren't taught to believe in Jesus. But I was always praying to God, and I didn't know he was Jesus. And I was in a church. And I felt out there and I thought, I've done everything but try Jesus, why not? So I asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior filled me with the Holy Spirit. Let's see what you got. I didn't think anything would happen [phonetic 02:00]. And I was filled with the Holy Spirit and have this joy in my heart. That was amazing. And then he started changing my life. And now I'm just all about Jesus. So much fun.

I love that it just naturally sort of happened for you through sort of creativity and art and everything there. So Laura, if one of our audience members was to just stumble upon you in the street, and you had a conversation with them, and in that conversation, it came up, that they were struggling with their happiness, what would be that piece of advice you would give to that person?
Laura Ann Cohn 02:32
Well, I would let them know that God really loves them. And there's a reason why they're having a problem. And there is an answer. And the answer is we need forgiveness. And Jesus came to life, and he died on the cross. He was paying the price for our sins, he was missing from the dead. And he's already taken care of that. We just have to believe in him and [unintelligible 02:52]. And he is so incredibly loving. And that peace that we get when we are filled with the Holy Spirit gives us a joy that surpasses understanding. That's what the Bible says. And I remember when I was young, I thought, you know, God, this life is so hard. Why isn't there a book that instructs us? And then I found out Oh, he actually did it. It's [phonetic 03:14] the Bible. And [unintelligible 03:16] And it's like, okay, and it's just amazing the more I spend time with him, the better my life is, the better I feel and it's process, you know, and he will meet everyone where we are. And he loves us, and he wants to be with us. And so, pray, ask God to help you and he will.
