Hi I'm Lori
I'm a pediatric flight nurse, a wife, a mom to 4 great kids, an avid runner, and I'm a Mormon.
The things I love about my life are covered by all the different hats that I wear. I am a wife to a wonderful husband and a mother to 4 amazingly busy kids and one slightly neurotic dog. I work full time as a pediatric nurse, both as a flight nurse and in a pediatric ICU. I am an avid runner and love to run marathons and long distance relay races. My life seems to run at a frantic pace but I love to spend all of the time that I can with my family...watching movies, playing games, going on hikes...anything together!!
Why I am a Mormon
I have been a member of the church my whole life but my own life experiences have helped me to greater understand why this is where my faith is. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who knows me, knows what's in my heart, and loves me anyway. I find great peace in the direction the gospel of Jesus Christ gives me...trying each and every day to find ways to be a better person. I know that my progress in life is just that...a work in progress...and knowing and embracing the atonement of Jesus Christ allows me to learn and grow and keep moving forward. As I work as a nurse, I find great peace in the understanding that there is more than just this earth life, but the chance to return to our Heavenly Father and see loved ones again.
How I live my faith
I love working with the youth in my church, especially as they are learning and developing their own faith. It is such a cool experience to witness them grow and mature into a testimony that will help them throughout their lives. I also love their energy for life...it keeps me young!!! Hiking, camping, singing, serving, playing! It's a blast!! I also get to lead discussions and teach among the women in our ward and I feel like I am the one learning from the experiences that we all share. But my most important calling is that of mother to my family. Living each day with my kids, teaching them gospel principles as we go through daily experiences is truly my greatest challenge.
