Hi there. Thanks for stopping by to read my blog.
If you’re new to my world, let me introduce myself. I’m Lori. I’m a writer, a blogger, a dreamer, a lover of civility, and a follower of Jesus Christ. I live in northeast Pennsylvania (NEPA, USA). In addition to this, I work a day job as an office manager, I write a daily devotional for my church Monday through Friday each week, I design promotional materials for public events, and I write for three blogs. I enjoy learning, and I’m always on the look-out for opportunities to help build community through service work. I love tulips and can’t wait for spring to arrive each year.
My passions are faith, family, and writing, in that order.
My first serious recognition as a writer came when my tenth grade English teacher altered his plans for the class because of an argument I presented to him as part of a freestyle essay writing assignment. That’s when I learned that the pen had power, that I wanted to get me some o’ dat, and that I was willing to put time and effort into learning how to express myself in order to obtain it. I’ve never looked back.
I like to think I passed some of my writing genes on to my sons. They also have mad art skills, which can in no way be traced back to me.

We have two grandsons, Jessup and Aaron, who my husband and I adore, and one daughter-in-law we love like she’s blood. We prayed for you, Megan. Never forget it!
Hubby and I had a modular home built for us on twenty acres my mom gifted us; we moved in the summer of 2009. That plot of land has become our oasis in this crazy, upside-down world. Thank you, Mom, for everything you do for your children. You’re a super star in my eyes!
We share our hill side property and good fortune with Rosie, our very old donkey; Mauser, the Schnauzer; and Jingle Bells, a rescue cat that came to us as an answer to prayer and stayed as a gift of daily joy. We also have three horses pasturing with us at present. They’re beautiful, powerful, and eat a lot of hay.
