Lori has been married to (and gratefully/happily commits daily to their saying, "I Choose Us") Jeff for 37 1/2 years, serving in church ministry from the the moment they said 'I do.' It is truly her desire to see people experience the presence of God in their lives because she believes that when His presence is made known, a life is forever changed. In fact, lives are changed because the impact affects generations! She and her husband love being the parents to Jacob (Abby), Hannah (Mark), Caleb, Cody and grandparents ("Duke" & "Doll") to Daisy, Anderson, Juniper & Isabelle. Her family is one her favorite things to talk about! Lori knows of life's greatest blessings and some of life's most heartbreaking losses and disappointments. She desires to be transparent of her life's journey, believing that God truly works for good in all situations, no matter what. Lori is confident in the power of prayer, whether in the stillness and quietness of she & Jesus or in the community of faith...prayer is a weapon and a source of strength in life. She is also confident of the power of worship, lifting our voices and positioning ourselves to truly worship, whether alone or with others...worship is a weapon and a source of strength in life & we were created to worship our Savior. Prayer & worship have most definitely helped to define and solidify her faith and trust in Jesus Christ as she has lived and continues to live with a mind and heart set on Jesus!
