COMMUNICATE, ENCOURAGE, INSPIRE are the three words that come to mind when Lori considers the calling God has on her life. A gifted storyteller, Lori genuinely shares her life struggles and circumstances, while passionately and often humorously, teaching God’s truths. Speaking of humor, Lori’s ministry “Just Trying to Be a Blessing,” gets its name from her favorite saying when she is typically in trouble!
She is an Indiana Wesleyan University graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in management. Her entrepreneurial spirit has led her to own her own small business, help start a crisis pregnancy center, plant a church, and write a best-selling book. She speaks regularly for Stonecroft Ministries and for other organizations for special events, women’s retreats, luncheons and conferences.
She and her husband, Jim, have four grown children—two of his and two of hers—three of whom are married increasing their “kid count” to seven! They also enjoy their seven grandchildren—God’s true blessings. Lori’s interests are her current real estate career, photography, reading, traveling, pro-life ministries and of course, writing and speaking!
