Hi I'm Lori

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and high school math teacher. I love teenagers and love teaching math. I live in the same house I grew up in with my husband, dog several cats. I have been snow skiing since I was 5 years old, thanks to my dad. I love to visit and play with my 10 grandchildren. They bring such a simpliness and joy to life. I am fortunate to have amazing in-laws, including my sister-in-law, married to my brother. We look like sisters, live close to each other and have lots of fun together. I survived a very long year of chemo and radiation due to breast cancer thanks to amazing family, friends, colleagues and prayers.

Why I am a Mormon

My family comes from a long line of church members. I was baptized when I was 8 years old by my brother. I was truly converted when I went away to college. I was sitting on the temple grounds late one evening after leaving a school dance. The Spirit testified to me that night that the church was true and that Jesus Christ was my brother and Savior.

How I live my faith

I love working with the youth at school and at church. They all are at different places in their lives and I love to hear what their dreams, goals and aspirations are for their future. I have been backpacking, gone to Church camps with girls, chaparoned science camp and tons of dances. I am the advisor of a girl's service organization at my school. We are learning how to serve others and put others befor ourselves. I have also been a leader and teacher in an organization of women. This has definitely been a change for me. I have learned to serve and visit sisters of all ages and all walks of life. I love teaching and feel blessed that it is one of the gifts my Heavenly Father has given me. I love the youth and even as I age I find myself back serving with the youth of our church. They are amazing! Full of faith, strength and knowledge. I am grateful for my trials and the atonement that helped me survive breast cancer. I have a brother and sister who lived the gospel in spite of long chronic illnesses. They were strong until they peacefully and proudly left this life to live with our Heavenly Father again. How blessed I am to have such an amazing family.
