Lori’s career has been in administration, operations and management. Most recently she held positions on a defense contract where she managed the paperwork for $238M in projects, and the annual reviews of hundreds.
Lori enjoys writing to reveal the goodness of God and therefore has authored this website, and as time permits more stories will be added. Just released is her new book, “A Heart Captured by God”, and soon there will be an accompanying workbook available, a step-by-step guide to a deeper, more intimate relationship with God.
“Lori is able to minister to people from every walk of life on a personal level and with an indescribable amount of love and grace; she truly has a heart after God’s own heart.” — Shenyse, Tucson
The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God breathed by the Holy Spirit. It is God’s compass in all matters of life.
Sin separated all humans from God, and only through Jesus Christ and the work He accomplished can we be reconciled to God.
Jesus Christ has always existed fully as God, as part of the Trinity. However, for our sake He became fully Man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born into the earth through the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, purposefully took all sin upon Himself, gave His life willingly at the cross, rose from the dead, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father as our triumphant High Priest.
The salvation Jesus earned on the cross is God’s gift to humanity. Therefore, we cannot work to “earn salvation” because Jesus did all the work for us. This gift is freely given to all who wish to receive it. Baptism is an outward symbol that we have received the gift of salvation and willingly choose to follow God.
Communion is the commemoration of Jesus’ life and sacrificial death. Taking it is symbolic of our dedication to Him and our remembrance He is coming back for His bride, the body of Christ.
The Holy Spirit is our Teacher, Comforter and Guide. He enables us to know and love God, be healed, and live a life beneficial to ourselves, our family and others we know and influence. He empowers us for this cause with His presence and gifts; His fruits are the evidence of God’s work in our life.
God’s intention is that all get to know Him and realize His great love for the human race. He desires that we be healed from that which has caused harmed, fully realize His forgiveness, and live with hope and peace. Further, His intention is to use us to pass on His good news by taking the hope and healing we’ve found to the entire world.
