Welcome to the writing and ministry of Dr. Laurie R. Matthias.



Laurie Matthias grew up in Northern Virginia and raised three children with her husband Larry in southeastern Virginia where she taught middle and high school English. She moved to the Chicago area to join the faculty of Trinity International University in 2007. Currently she serves at Trinity as an associate professor of education and director of graduate programs in education. She and Larry attend Christian Neighbors Church in Waukegan, a multiethnic group of believers whose mission is “learning to love unconditionally by doing what Jesus says."



Laurie has many passionate interests that include the inner life of the teacher, the connections between spiritual formation and emotional health, the integration of faith and learning, multiculturalism in education, and Christian higher education in countries outside the U.S. Her latest passion is her new  grandson Simon Alexander Matthias.
