Laura Akins

Features Editor

As features editor, Laura Akins writes a variety of profile and trend stories for The Christian Chronicle.

She also produces a monthly reviews column, a testament to her love for music, audiobooks and podcasts — anything she can listen to while juggling her many side gigs and life with four kids.

Akins rejoined the Chronicle staff in March 2020 after previously serving as the editor’s assistant from September 2014 to June 2016, when she took a break to focus primarily on fostering children.

She and her family attend Heritage Church of Christ in Edmond, Okla., where Laura serves as a youth ministry director and her husband, Travis, is the preacher. Over the last decade, the Akinses have opened their home to 11 foster children, but recently, they made the difficult decision to concentrate solely on their four biological kids: Reese, Lucy, Wiley and Scout.
