Hi I'm Lorraine Jeffery

I grew up in Oregon, not far from the beautiful Oregon Coast. I am a librarian and a writer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy writing and have had over 50 poems published in various journals and books. I have also written and published essays and short stories. My first novel came out this year. My husband and I have ten children (eight adopted), and thirty grandchildren. All extremely cute! I worked over 20 years as a manager in public library systems in several different states.

Why I am a Mormon

My father was not a Mormon when he married my mother, and she was not active in the Church. However, they wanted to raise their children in a religious atmosphere, so they became active in the Mormon church and it formed the foundation for my life. I particularly enjoy the optimistic attitude and work ethic of church members as well as their fellowship and support.

How I live my faith

Over the years, I have worked in the youth organizations and adult organizations in my ward. I have also volunteered in my community.
