Welcome to the 2021 Adventure

Soups on, blankets are out and Hero Husband is working on the fireplace. “Putting the yard to bed” is on my calendar and I will soon be closing the doors and cuddling on the couch with a favorite book. It’s just that time of year. It’s also the time of year we look inward, we spend time with family and friends, celebrating and giving out of our bounty. It’s also a good time to strategize your holidays - are you going to travel this year? Host an event? Bake something new? Explore a new holiday adventure? This will be my first holiday season in my new town and I’m excited to unwrap all the opportunities. They’re putting up lights in the park that promise to be amazing and I can’t wait to find out what “Christmas on Covell” is all about. I encourage you to get online and see what your community has to offer - and then grab a friend and go do something NEW!


If you live in the Edmond area I invite you to come out to a Monday Morning adventure on November 29th and December 6th at Crossings Church (Edmond campus). I will be sharing some of my humorous holiday stories alongside Certified Counselor, Sheri Murphy, who will help us navigate the craziness of the holidays. I promise you’ll laugh and walk away with a few more coping skills. I hope you can join us at 9:30.


…gotta go dig out those sweaters!

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!

                                        - Ephesians 3:20
