Hi I'm Lori Shenk

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of five and grandmother of seven. I own a boutique I design swimwear and dance costumes I love to create, run, cook, blog, entertain, and spend time with my family

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It keeps me safe and gives me direction of how to live a joyful, happy, and successful life. I actually have a handbook on how to tackle obstacles, disappointment, parenting, and how to be a women of faith in a world that is confusing and demoralizing. I know my Heavenly Father has a plan for me and has given the tools to accomplish all that is expects of me. When I was younger I used to have this picture in my head of how things were suppose to be and would get uptight if it didn't go that way. Now that I'm older and much much wiser I've discovered that if i put things in God's hands the outcome is far better than anything I could picture. The Gospel of Jesus Christ gives me purpose, answers, strength, guidance and a true relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love working with teenagers. I have had the opportunity working with girls ages 12-18 for the past 15 years. I get to teach lessons, and activities around faith, divine nature, individual worth, choice and accountability, good works, integrity, and virtue. What great values to teach girls how to be women of faith. Everyone needs a friend. My husband and I entertain frequently groups of 20-100 people to bring together neighborhoods and communities. When we are involved with so many friends and neighbors we are aware of different needs others might have. It gives us the opportunity to serve because we are aware. I love connecting and reaching out to people.
