Hi there! I’m Lauren and I’m so happy you’re here!

I believe in the story of the overcomer. That has been my story and I believe that is your story too.

I started as a woman with a baby in one hand and a laptop in the other. I had ten dollars to my name, but lots of determination in my heart. I knew that I wanted to create a life free from the rat race and one where I could stay at home with my babies and provide for them, too.

It took work. It took heart. It took overcoming. But, I made it and I continue to make it.

Because of that journey, giving dreamers just like you the tools and encouragement for a gorgeous web presence has become my passion.

You’re likely here because you’ve overcome so much in life, but you can continue overcoming, to create the life and dreams that are in your heart. And that you don’t have to do it alone, but we can help you create a web presence that you feel deeply at home in and proud of.

Since starting Restored 316 over nine years ago, I have worked with thousands of clients from all over the world to bring their big dreams to life! I’ve worked with start-up companies that are now multi-­million dollar businesses, the mama who wants to sell crafty goodies to provide some extra money on the side, and everything else in between. And what does this tell me? Anyone can do this, including you.

When I am not pouring my heart and energy into this, I’m a single mother to two amazing human beings and drinking sweet tea like a true Southern girl. I am also obsessed with Gilmore Girls and Apple Products and I’m the pickiest eater on the planet. Oh and you know what I believe more than anything else?

That you’re an overcomer. So, let’s overcome together.

What is the meaning of our business name & why the butterfly?

I’ve gone through an awful lot in my short life – some of which you wouldn’t believe if I told you. I’ve had a lot of highs and some really low lows and then I’ve also had the extreme rock bottom. My life has been restored in so many ways, and I wanted my business name to reflect all that God has done in my life. The 316 part is for John 3:16 which is one of the most well-known scriptures in the Bible. I love Jesus and wanted it to be obvious, not only in the work that I do, but in my business name!

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16

The butterfly is a symbol that has been a part of our brand since the very beginning. It’s meaning is two-fold – to symbolize the transformation of your business when you work with us – and the life of a butterfly is the perfect picture of the word restored. A caterpillar can be viewed as something ugly, but when it transforms into a butterfly it becomes beautiful and its life is in fact Restored.
