Welcome to the 2021 Adventure

Fall is just around the corner - MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR!! I’m super excited about our upcoming Conference in Grove, Oklahoma - see details for registration below.


My first summer in Edmond, Ok is coming to a close. I managed to establish my yard and garden and squeeze in a very productive road trip out west. I experienced Santa Fe, New Mexico, Tucson, Arizona, Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs, with my final destination being Crestline, CA - the home of Fashionista Daughter’s new AirBnB. Hero Husband and I worked alongside her to create a beautiful mountain retreat. Be sure to check out Little Wolf Lodge if you’re traveling that way. It’s an amazing get-away on Lake Gregory and close to ski resorts as well.


I’m ready to settle in and wait for the cool weather to blow in the aroma of pumpkin spice and transform the dry and dusty to colorful and crisp.


I hope to see you in Grove!!

I Wrote A Book


Vacuuming up a snake, frogs in the kitchen, sending her son to war, beauty product foibles and a bicycle tour in Paris. That's just a sampling of the adventures you'll uncover in Dumpster Diving.
Sit a spell and enjoy a cup of coffee with Lori as she takes you on a journey of "lessons learned". You will soon discover that often it's the crazy that renders the profound. You will laugh out loud, and maybe even shed a tear as you "dive into her dumpster" to find the treasure in her stories. A motivational memoir that will leave you wanting more.

Outside of Ordinary is Lori's forum to bring joy, hope and encouragement to your day or maybe just a moment. 

Any ordinary person, ordinary day, or ordinary moment can become extraordinary when someone steps out of their circle of expectation. 

What appears to be an ordinary day canchange in a flash when you change your perspective: 

  • Look at that flower

  • Look at that person's eyes

  • Try something new

  • Really listen to the lyrics of the song

  • Really taste the food

  • Just stop and breathe

  • Accept the love that's being offered

  • Choose to be kind

The list is endless, the possibilities are amazing, and the adventures exhilarating. Lori wants to take you on a journey as she tells the stories of her day to day encounters, to not only bring a spark of joy, but to challenge you to see your own life in maybe a new way. Who doesn't love to find a great big package on their doorstep...God gives you a new one with every sunrise. It's called TODAY.

Let's take a step out of the circle and tear into it together. 


God can do anything, you know - far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!
