Hi I'm Lori

I love my family and my dog. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom with my daughter and Brittany Spaniel, Cabo. I graduated with my bachelors in communications and clusters in health science and family studies. I love photography, graphic design, the outdoors, the beach, the sun, travel, food, and my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Knowing who I am and learning who I can become is one of the greatest blessings I have. Being a mother is my chosen career in life because I know it's where I can make the biggest impact on the world. Being a Mormon to me is being a daughter of God. Even though I was raised in the church, I have made the choice to follow Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. I love being a member of God's church. The guidance I receive through personal revelation has blessed my life immensely. I believe in the plan of salvation with all of my heart. I know that my family here on earth is an eternal family that will live with Heavenly Father once again. I know that Jesus Christ is my brother and personal savior, and yours too. The priesthood was restored as it existed in the Holy Bible. Prayer is my communication to Heavenly Father and I use it every moment. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and if I follow the commandments, I can reach my full potential as a his literal daughter.

How I live my faith

While in college before I had my daughter, my most favorite calling in our ward was in the primary. I was the secretary in the presidency. The love that I had for those children grew each time I was with them. Every Sunday they taught me lessons I couldn't have imagined them teaching me. They recognized who Jesus Christ was when we would show pictures of Him. It inspired me to be active with my children in teaching them at home who the Savior is. My favorite moments was when they would sing primary songs...or more like shout them.

What is the Law of Chastity?

The law of chastity is just like any commandment- it protects us from sin. The power to create children is sacred and special between a husband and wife. Bringing children into this world is a beautiful, godlike experience. The physical emotions set within us has purpose. When the boundaries have been crossed outside of a married couple, repentance is in need. Keeping intimacy within a husband and wife brings happiness and joy to your family. Show more Show less

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Baptism is not an unheard of practice. How Mormons preform a baptism however may be unusual. We believe that children are not held accountable until the age of 8 because that is the time when they truly understand what is right and wrong. We believe that baptism is a saving ordinance that is the first step to entering into God's kingdom. Show more Show less

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The Word of Wisdom is like a health code that was revealed by God. God knows what is best for the bodies he created and cares enough to let us know what is best for it. We know through science and current studies that there are addictive substances out there that harm our bodies. Fortunately for everyone, we have been told what those are almost two hundred years ago. Living the Word of Wisdom brings joy and happiness to us. Properly functioning bodies is a blessing that we can help maintain by following the Word of Wisdom. Show more Show less
