Lori’s mom insists that she came out of the womb ‘talking’ and has not stopped since. Lori however, insists that over the past 49 years she has learned a thing or two about listening as well. Especially, when it is God who is doing the talking. She’s a wannabe artist who is certain that “all who wander are not lost.”
Lori’s daily mantra includes praying, “I will take it Lord, ALL you have to give,” and a commitment to live out Colossians 3:17 daily. It’s her prayer that the energy that fills her spirit be with her till her dying breath!
Nearly two years ago, Lori traded the sauna of the Deep South, for the snow of Chicago. After 19 years in Atlanta, Lori has bought herself a coat and some winter boots and is ready for the NEXT adventure at Harvest Bible Chapel / Chicago West.
She navigates this road with her husband of 26 years and they have 3 children, ranging in age from 17 – 22. She seeks daily to be creative and use the gifts the Lord has given her. With the heart of an artist and a spirit to live intentionally missional, Lori strives daily to see Him in all that surrounds her.
She has recently stepped out into NEW territory with her husband in the inner city of Chicago. She is on staff at Harvest Chicago West, in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago, where the Lord is opening her eyes and giving her a passion for Urban Ministry and Discipleship.
Lori and her husband also have a Business as Missions endeavor that helps empower women and missionaries around the world. She would be HONORED if you’d visit Hope Products International where providing HOPE to the world through fair trade and sustainable products.
Lori has served in a number of roles over the years, ranging from Camp/Leadership Adventure Coordinator, a mid week Bible club for elementary and upper elementary students in a local public elementary school, as well as being on staff in her church. She is excited in this season to watch the Lord unfold HIS plans for the next step on the journey.
Helping others, loving others where they are and seeing the transforming power of Jesus is at the heart of all she does. Her heart for children, women and all those on the broken road is at the core of everything she does.
She LOVES playing graphically, encouraging others through visual arts, and her passion for Discipleship is at the heart of all she does. It truly inspires her and fills her spirit.
