Hi, I’m Lauren
I’m the founder and CEO of Restored 316, and I’ve been designing beautiful, customized websites since 2008. I have thousands of happy clients who have used their websites to generate millions of dollars…and now I’m offering my expertise to you.
When I started my business, I had ten dollars to my name and a young family to support.
I rolled up my sleeves and taught myself coding and design so that I could build my website. And through a series of events that the Lord put in my path, Restored 316 was born.
Since then, I’ve excelled in creating sites that are professional, easy-to-navigate, and aesthetically gorgeous.
But I wanted to make my designs accessible to entrepreneurs at every level (especially beginners!) So now many of my designs are available as templates that are simple to install and personalize so that your brand shines its best into the world.
As your mentor and friend, I stay on top of all the latest tech updates and marketing trends so that my products and courses are always best-in-class…making it easy for you to rise above the crowds.
Back in 2008, I was a young mama in a desperate place and needed to quickly figure out a way to provide an income for my little family. Through a series of events that I firmly believe the Lord put in my path, I began teaching myself design and code so I could provide my services to potential clients; with the last $10 in my bank account, Restored 316 was born.
Once I had nothing to escape from, I started to enjoy living my life and finding purpose in things that didn’t include just my work! I learned that I love to travel, spend quality time with my children, and I adored hanging out with and encouraging friends around me! I learned that Lauren wasn’t just a business owner, but she was a social butterfly who had been in a cocoon for far too long (bringing an entirely new meaning to the butterfly symbol!).
You can now call me Mrs. Dierschke! Chris and I got married this year in a small elopement ceremony and we couldn’t be happier! Our blended family now consists of 6 incredible kids whom I adore and 3 beautiful grand children!
I desired to have more control over my time and schedule and wanted a way to create passive income. So, with a push from Brian Gardner (founder of StudioPress) I created my first WordPress theme and listed it in the StudioPress marketplace. I’ve now been designing WordPress themes for over a decade and have built an incredible community of beloved customers and friends that use our Restored 316 themes!
In 2017 I found myself in the middle of a divorce and on the way to being a single mama. Though 2017 was one of the most difficult years of my life, it was also one of the best! Through it, I realized that for years I had allowed Restored 316 to become my identity. I literally lived and breathed it. I would check my emails from the dinner table, answer emails from bed at night, or answer a phone call at nearly midnight from a customer. I realized that the reason I did all those things wasn’t just because I love my work so much, which I most certainly do, but because I was escaping the reality that was my life.
This year I found love again and found what it truly meant to be loved. A few of our friends introduced us, and I’m grateful for this sweet man!
Another huge thing this year was that I bought my own house just one year after my divorce was final!! Huge huge deal for me!
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!
The butterfly is a symbol that has been a part of our brand since the very beginning. Its 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.
