Nashville, Tenn. (September 19, 2014) – GRAMMY® award winning songstress Laura Story and her husband Martin have welcomed fraternal twin boys to their family. Benjamin Cary and Griffin James were born within three minutes of each other, weighing 6.5 lbs and 6.3 lbs respectively. The twins join their 2-year-old big sister Josie.
"Martin and I are so thrilled to finally meet these little guys! God has truly blessed our family,” said a tired but joyful Story.
Laura will take her new growing family out on the road this December for a short Christmas tour in select states (MD, ME, NY, OH and NJ). Her new Christmas record God With Us will be available for these shows and will be released to retail Christmas 2015.
While her schedule will be quite busy with the new additions, Story is also currently working on her first book scheduled to release next fall. The W Publishing book "When God Doesn't Fix It: Lessons You Never Wanted to Learn; Truths You Can't Live Without" will explore Story’s journey from her life expectations through shattered dreams and on to the incredible truths that she uncovered in her study of God's Word. It will offer readers a friend who understands, important biblical insights and hope that God has not forgotten them.

The success of the single “Blessings,” which was certified RIAA Gold, includes the GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Song, the Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Song and the Dove Awards for Song of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. The song inspired Laura's first book, “What If Your Blessings Come Through Raindrops?” in 2012. Her latest project - God Of Every Story - released last year to much acclaim.
