Laura Rigsby grew up in the Baptist faith. Her dad was a preacher who eventually started his own traveling cowboy church that provided Sunday services to families who were attending Horse Competitions on the weekends.

When Laura was interning in Texas, she was in the beginning stages of a relationship with a man from KY who was a convert to Catholicism. On a road-trip to see the Alamo, Laura asked him questions about the Catholic faith and what is was like to attend a Catholic mass. After visiting the Alamo, Laura and her (then) boyfriend decided to check out the many Spanish missions in the area. As it turns out, one of the missions was still an active Church--and they arrived just in time to join them their for Saturday night vigil mass.

Once back in KY, Laura and her boyfriend began attending mass at St Joseph's in Bowling Green where Laura eventually decided to enter the Church through the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) process.
