Lauren Akins Career
After graduating from college, Lauren has worked for several organizations providing her nursing services to help people in need around the world. She has traveled to Haiti, Honduras, and Uganda, where she does most of her work.
She works for an organization called 147 Million Orphans. The organization provides food, water, medicine, shelter, and education to vulnerable children in the name of Jesus Christ. She and her husband, Thomas, were able to raise more than $250k in 2016 for the organization.
In 2019, Akins announced she started working on her first book. On August 1, 2020, “Live in Love: Growing Together Through Life’s Change” was published by Ballantine Books. It tells both her story of growing up but also her love story with Rhett and their journey to have a family.
Akins said Live in Love relates mostly to both moms and young women. “Well, Thomas Rhett read it. He is my husband, so I think he’s probably a little more biased and interested in my life than most men probably are. But I do think the marriage part is good for both men and women to read.”

“There was a [wine] bottle, and with a silver Sharpie, I wrote, ‘Marry me?’ on the bottle, and she wrote ‘Well, duh, yes’ on the bottle. Somebody cued ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ by Frank Sinatra, and we danced in this little cigar room. It was pretty awesome.”
Sometime in October 2012, the couple got married just outside of Nashville. They were both 22 years old.
