Born in upstate NY. I am an author, a songwriter, musician and a retired Pastor, formerly a caterer and a sporting goods store owner, among several other professions. I had the extreme privilege of serving as lead pastor in Olean NY, Niagara Falls NY, LaFargeville, NY, and Laurinburg NC.
I have been married to my wife Jane for nearly fifty years and we live together in the countryside West of St. Louis. I am currently serving as Worship leader at my home Church in Union, MO. I began this journey of ministry of writing to encourage especially those of retirement age or beyond to try new things, to hope for the here and now and to re-establish ties with family and friends. I publish a devotional blog each day at larrymlawrence.com, Finding God in the Mystery of every day.
