Hi I'm Lori

I'm a Mormon. I live in Utah & do social media for a living. I am a mom and wife and couldn't be happier!

About Me

I was born and have lived in Utah my entire life. I live in beautiful northern Utah and love our beautiful mountains. I am the mother of two amazing young adults. I married my eternal companion 25 years ago in the Salt Lake Temple. I love being crafty. I love working with refugees. I do social media marketing from home for a living. I love to travel & explore the world. And I have the most amazing friends all over the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the unending JOY I have experienced and through obedience to the doctrine I have been taught since I was a small child. I know in my heart and soul that I am part of the truest church on the Earth today. I have a testimony that my Savior is aware of me, knows me better than anyone and is always there lifting me up and cheering me on. I feel his presence in my life daily, hourly and in every moment. I have read and have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and know it is another testament of Jesus Christ and his ministry. I cannot imagine my life without the knowledge that HE LIVES.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by looking for opportunities to serve others. I find a lot of peace and joy in attending the Temple. My ultimate joy comes from supporting my two children who are both serving full-time missions right now; our Elder serves in the Morristown New Jersey mission & our Hermana is serving in the Resistencia Argentina Mission and they both love the people of the areas they live and give service in. I also have the honor of teaching children every Sunday. They make me laugh and when they sing my heart is full!

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

I love that our church encourages us to be actively engages in our community and voters. They do not urge or dictate who and what we vote for, we are free to chose. Although many people believe that Mormons are republicans, that is not the case. I consider myself independent and often times a bit more liberal then my friends and neighbors, but it is part of my free agency to choose how to be involved and who to vote for. Show more Show less
