Unlocking Secrets Draft

My journal — my hidden place with the Lord — holds so many secrets, unlocking so many places that have freed my heart. My holy hope is that it will unlock places where maybe you’ve been imprisoned like me, and places where you’ve wrestled and quietly questioned will be opened to the truth. It’s my prayer that together we will be tackled with answers, immersed in God’s perfect love, grace and mercy, and we will be refreshed and set free.

Welcome. May you see His heart that is for you.
We are loved beyond measure, and invited to come as we are. 

I have told my friends my secrets, and they have told me theirs,
but the best kept secrets I have heard
are from Jesus.

Snow Reminds Me of Easter

“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) Ever noticed that the cute white painted brick house down the street begins to look awfully dirty once the snow … Continue readingSnow Reminds Me of Easter

Mary’s Lamb Wasn’t Little

“MARY HAD THE PERFECT LAMB WHOSE FLEECE IS WHITE AS SNOW!” So, let’s be sure we get this straight. Mary did not have a little lamb, but the virgin gave birth to the perfect male spotless lamb, born to die. The one who took our place, served our sentence and rose from the grave to … Continue readingMary’s Lamb Wasn’t Little

Desires of the Heart

We all have desires, some are good, they are a delight to us, to the Lord and to others. Other desires we’d prefer to take a hike, tied to habits and attitudes that take over and weigh us down. Then still there are more that we might not even realize. Did you ever stop to … Continue readingDesires of the Heart

Make A Move

We’ve moved so many times in our marriage. Last count was five. We’ve always bought the fixer-upper, moved in and given it a whole new look, settling into our new home. Our last move proved a little different. Before pulling the trigger we actually paused to think on why we were moving and it really … Continue readingMake A Move

Amazing Grace in Full Color

Oh, I love to sing. Just ask my family. An ole’ favorite took my heart to deep places this week with just this one line ~ Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. Most all of us are familiar with this song, but do we rest in this word? A … Continue readingAmazing Grace in Full Color


I have so many notes; throughout my journal, on notecards, necklaces, framed, typed, taped up, on chalkboards, you name it. Think on all the notes you post as motivators. They are reminders, positive suggestions, words of comfort. All of them, an effort to lift you up and keep you going. Right? Today I hear the … Continue readingFootnotes

Hi! I’m Lori.

Behind any of my words is a girl who has not always walked the straight and narrow. One who has hit some dead ends, sharp turns, heartaches of regret and challenges. Behind any of my words is a heart that desires to share the windy road; for us to know and discover God’s ultimate desire. That whatever path we find ourselves on, it’ll stir us and lead us home to His safe embrace.

Life is better when we travel together.
