"Free to Be Me" at 7:00 pm

Let us come together and truly learn the most important aspect of Freedom - how to be yourself - that person that is within you who sometimes hides aspects of yourself for whatever fear might be showing up. Learn how to accept all that you are and let yourself shine!

Spiritual Leader

Rev. Larrye-Marie Heyl founded the Center for Spiritual Living Southeast Louisiana almost 5 years ago. She is the spiritual director of a growing community in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A life-long learner, she holds her Masters of Consciousness Studies from Holmes Institute. She brings practical applications to her talks and her favorite part of ministry is the variety of ways in which she watches people expand their own spirituality. She has been teaching since the age of seven and her talks are a continuation of her love to share what she has learned about the Religious Science philosophy and life in general.

April Krubel is a vocalist/actor who began performing at the age of 13. She honed her talents in musical theater most notably playing Laurie in “Oklahoma”. She was a soloist in numerous choirs, acted in non-musical theater productions, studied and performed classical voice competitions winning 6th in the state of Oregon, received numerous soloist awards and sang for two cover bands in the early 90’s. She began attending NTCSL in October 2013 and joined the choir immediately thereafter to fill a void she thought would forever be empty. She has a deep love and passion for music and the opportunity for Spirit to use her as a vessel in music ministry is something she is thankful for every day.

She frequently lends her voice as back-up for other musical artists at Wednesday and Sunday services, as well as performing as a featured soloist. She is the mother of three (Brooke, Ian & Storm) and is married to NTCSL congregant, James Krubel. In her spare time she loves to travel, write music, work on her book, spend time with friends/family and give of herself to others.

I embody the principles of New Thought in my everyday life and it makes such a positive difference in all that I do and all that I touch -- in my counseling practice and in my spiritual practitioner practice.
