It was wonderful to have Laura and Michael with us for our Sunday morning worship service. We were blessed by their powerful testimony and vulnerability in sharing what God has done in their lives. It is amazing to see how God is continuing their story as they work together as a team. My family and I were personally blessed to spend time with them during their visit and see their sincerity for Jesus in their lives.

We were blessed to have Laura and her husband, Michael share their testimony at The Fig Tree. Her music is moving and her personality – powerful. What I liked most about it is how their testimony glorifies God. This couple’s amazing story of redemption and God’s faithfulness demonstrates how the Father never gives up on us and how He patiently pursues us because of His great love!

Laura and Michael Pavlo have a miraculous testimony as well as a calling in music ministry. I personally have experienced Laura’s anointing as a worship leader during many events where I have spoken. Her voice is powerful, engaging and soothing. I highly recommend having them visit as the Lord is using them mightily.

I was so delighted and blessed to have the opportunity to air Laura’s full length video “In The Garden” on the UPTV network. The Lord will use her song to bless many people in His name Jesus Christ.

I worked with Laura. At the time she was a hygienist and songwriter. I listened to one of her CDs and found her voice to be transforming and spectacular. I am not surprised she is ministering in music and has a following. Laura is gifted and one of the sweetest women I know. Laura touches everyone with her generous loving words. God Bless

Laura Hawthorne is a gifted and humble servant of The Lord with a tremendous music ministry. Many people were moved by her singing and life stories she shared with us. We were blessed to have her at our church and look forward to when she comes again to minister in word and song.

I love turning the spotlight on Laura Hawthorne. She is a shining example of lights that shine bright for Jesus in the Northeast. Laura is a very gifted vocalist that really connects on a personal level. Her strengths are her star quality, energy, and servant’s attitude.

Laura is talented, and hopes to help those listening enter into a place of worship and reflection. I’m sure if you consider having Laura come to minister, she will do just that.

Whether Laura is singing a couple songs or doing an hour long service, you will be touched by the presence of the Lord. The anointing was there and the residents truly enjoyed her.
