Hi I'm Lori

I'm a Mormon. I earned 2 degrees while staying home for 17 years raising our 6 children and now I'm employed.

About Me

As a mother of 6 grown children, I'm now an empty-nester and have returned to the workforce to work for a non-profit entity which allows me the opportunity to help others grow and become more self-reliant and to transform their lives. I completed college while staying home with my children as they were growing up and now have a degree in Psychology and an MBA. For hobbies, my husband and I enjoy kayaking and hiking. Photography has been an enjoyable hobby and at one time, I quitled up a blue streak and even had a quilting business with a dear friend. Currently I volunteer as the activities committee chairman and help create activities at church and also teach a Teacher Development class.

Why I am a Mormon

I was about 27 when I joined the church. My husband joined a year before I did and at that time, I thought it was just what HE needed, but it wasn't for me. Yet I attended the activities and events and the missionaries helped me to understand its value. I even had visiting teachers before I was a member. Then one day, I knew it was right for me as well. So I was baptized and have loved it ever since. It has taken our family from a life of confusion and disarray to a life of understanding and peace. I've been so grateful for the many things I've learned in Relief Society and for all that we have learned as parents. I grew up in a somewhat rough home with 13 siblings and didn't have the best parenting skills. Through the many teachings of the church, I have learned to be a better parent and a better person. Through the opportunities to serve others, I have learned to be a leader and to have compassion for those in need. My heart has been softened, my knowledge increased, my desire to be more Christ-like strengthened, and my resolve to endure to the end as a Christian magnified.

How I live my faith

Through the opportunities to serve others in the church, I have learned to be a leader and to have compassion for those in need. My heart has been softened, my knowledge increased, my desire to be more Christ-like strengthened, and my resolve to endure to the end as a Christian magnified. I volunteer on a board in the development where I live and have rencently completed a Community Emergency Response Team CERT training. Currently I volunteer as the activities committee chairman and help create activities at church and also instruct a class to help others improve their teaching abilities.

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Lori
If you see cars in the parking lot of one of the churches, just walk in and ask to speak with someone about the church. Look on Mormon.org or LDS.org. Someone will always be there to help and answer questions. One of the greatest desires of our heart is to help another have the Lord in their life. Alma says, "oh that I were an angel and could have the wish of my heart...." And so it is with all of us who have a desire to lead others to Christ. "Ask and ye shall receive" for we want to help you be blessed in your life as we are blessed in ours. Show more Show less
