About Us

My husband, Jeremy, is a sound and IT engineer. We have been married for twenty years and reside in Bastrop, Texas. I, (Laura Cates) am a voice and piano teacher in Bastrop, both of us have played an integral part in the worship ministry of our local church Bastrop Christian Outreach Center since 1988. As a family, we have produced one CD entitled “Quiet Places”.   In 2015, Jeremy and I  launched catesMEDIA where we like to blog on the subjects of marriage and family, music and poetry, and scripture studies. Some of our favorite things to do are hiking, spending time with family and creating music and videos.


Our daughter, Leah, is a gifted craftsman, artist, musician and vocalist.  She enjoys sculpting clay figurines and loves to paint and draw.
