Hi I'm Lori

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

You might say I'm a Jack of all trades and master of none...yet, I Love to learn. In college I studied political science and ballroom dance. I am a licensed cosmetologist and a full-time sales manager for an international corporation. I am obsessed with musical theater, dabble in community theater, and compete in vocal competitions and performances when I get the chance. I am a huge fan of all things DIsney. I have a very authentic looking snow white dress and sometimes I get hired for birthday parties. I love cowboy boots and rodeos. I love vintage and lace. I am a sister, a friend, and the "favorite" aunt. I love museums and history, especially random facts. I am a closet blogger and I love to laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon to parents who taught me at a young age what it meant to follow my faith. My parents taught me the fundimental principles of the church and gave me the freedom to make my own choices. I never felt pressured or pushed into going to church. Although my Mormon friends were few, I had fantastic friends of other faiths who respected me and my choices. I have never had to question my choice to be Mormon. I have always felt a sense of peace, a greater understanding of who I am and what my purpose is on this earth. When I am doing the things I know to be right I have a broader perspective and I am happier. I know that I have a Father in Heaven and that he knows my name and what I need. I know that his Son Jesus Christ died for me because he loves me. I know that families can be eternal. I know these things- and so much more, and that keeps me going day after day. That helps me pick myself up when I have a tough day. To know that no matter what goes wrong in my life, at the end of the day I can get on my knees and talk to my Father and he listens and answers me- that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I currently have been given the opportunity to teach. Every other week I get to study a general topic and principle found in the scriptures. After I study and prayerfully consider the topic I get to lead a discussion with my peers about their thoughts, fellings, experiences, and testimonies of the chosen topic. We each get to bring something unique and special to the discussion and strengthen each other through our own efforts to become like Jesus Christ.
