Hi I'm Lori

I grew up in Texas. Got baptized in Washington state. I will start college in Alabama now. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom and wife. I will be starting college in the spring of 2013. I will be a student at the same time my son will be.

Why I am a Mormon

When we lived in Washington state my husband was sent to Korea in the military while my son and I stayed behind. To say it was hard would be an understatement. I had recently had a miscarrage and was very depressed. We decided to sell our home in Washington and move to California to be near my mom. I took my son to California and went back to Washington to get the house ready. Being alone was not a good choice for me and I became more and more depressed. I broke down one night and started praying and asked God to show me the way and I would follow his guidance. The next morning the door bell rang and there stood the Missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I started taking the discussions that same day and was baptized in 2 weeks. I still struggle with depression but with the support from the church I have another family helping me. I feel God's love every time I take part in a church function.

How I live my faith

I go to church on Sundays. I work in primary with the 7 year olds turning 8.
