Hi friend. I'm Lauren. I am the human heart behind Brick House in the City and I am SO glad that you are here. First and foremost, I am daughter of Christ. I desire to know God and to serve God and that is the driving force behind everything that I do. I am a smitten wife, a googly-eyed mother and the family that surrounds me keeps my heart whirling and reeling.

Most days you can find me chugging lukewarm coffee and orchestrating a fine mess with my four kiddos, Violet, Oliver, Jude, and Charlie. Hence, my motherhood motto 'embrace the chaos and choose joy.' This motto is evident to any lovely soul that comes to our home.

I couldn't do this motherhood and small business owner gig without the unwavering support of my incredible husband who is always willing to lend me an ear as I spill about my big ideas and reassures me with a confident, "You've got this." I am obsessed with cheese, randomly quoting The Office, and big, heavy, blankets.

I Once Was Lost Tee - Brick House in the City

In this mini-documentary with The Catholic Woman Non-Profit,Brick House in the City founder and designer Lauren Winter talks about the inspiration for her original Catholic-themed artwork, t-shirts, and home decor as well as her passion for fellowship with Catholic women.

Let's talk about my other baby, Brick House in the City! It was born from a passion to love and serve fellow Catholic women and to help them discover their home in the Catholic Church. It's my joy to remind each of us that we don't need to fit a mold to belong; we can shine brightly as the women God created us to be.

At Brick House in the City, we design products for Catholic women who want to be a light of Christ in their own corner of the world. Whether you're wearing one of our cozy t-shirts or sharing faith-filled stories with our art prints, prayer tools, or home accessories, you become part of the New Evangelization, ladies, opening the door to share our beautiful faith.

I hope that each product we create—from home goods to accessories, art prints to prayer aides, and more—not only lifts your spirit but inspires a prayer-filled, joyful day. Wherever you are in your journey, you'll always find a welcoming place with us!
