West Monroe, La. (April 20, 2016) – One of the most important missions to Missy Robertson and her family has always been to work selflessly to help others find faith and happiness through charity. In that vision, Missy Robertson has created the jewelry line ‘Laminin by Missy Robertson’ and established The Laminin House to provide jobs for women in the West Monroe area who are in need of work while creating a quality product—a jewelry collection embodying a rustic and feminine feel with materials from all over the world. The jewelry consists of natural stones and beads with mixed metals, deer horns, Druzy stones, leather, rosary beads, and more.
The company has a prospective goal of establishing hubs all across the United States, and will serve as a ministry to women coming out of hard situations and need assistance finding a way to break into the workforce, such as women coming out of sex trafficking, homelessness, single mothers and women in need of a purpose.
“The word “Laminin” is a molecular protein that holds everything in our bodies together. And this particular protein, if looked through a microscope is in the exact shape of the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ!,” shares Robertson. “He is in all things And In Him all things hold together is a verse taken by Colossians 1:17. This meaning means more than our bodies, but our community of Laminin ladies that will be a part of this jewelry line!”
Not only will ‘Laminin by Missy Robertson’ provide a safe, positive and empowering working community for local women in need, they will also focus on supporting local charities by designing and selling signature pieces once a month with 100% of the profit from that limited-edition piece benefiting a specific worker and the non-profit of her choice. ‘Laminin by Missy Robertson’ has already begun these partnerships with several local philanthropies, including Project 41 and Heartfelt Ministry.

Larry Gatlin’s illustrious career marches on as new opportunities arise
Larry Gatlin is no stranger to the stage. However, the stages have become more varied over the course of his career.
The eldest of the Gatlin Brothers doesn’t just step on the stage to sing, though he still performs a host of dates with his brothers Rudy and Steve.
The Texas native and current Nashville resident is a songwriter, an actor, a political and social contributor, and he has also served as a television host.
However, even with those numerous endeavors, Larry Gatlin’s feet are still firmly entrenched in musical soil.
We recently sat down with Gatlin to talk about his adventurous past, the present journey and what lies in the road ahead. His feedback is as follows …
What’s your current touring schedule like, and do you mix some solo performances along with the performances with your brothers?
People say, ‘why don’t you retire?’ I say, ‘I’ve become real accustomed to eating three meals a day.’ We made a lot of money. We paid our tithes, but we weren’t very good with our money. The good news is we made a lot of money. The bad news is we don’t have a lot left. We still love music. I do some solo performances, and Steve and Rudy also (do select performances without Larry).
