Everybody has a story. This is mine. Everything in my world seemed to be going great. It seemed as though the world was at my feet. But there was a merciless invader called Muscular Dystrophy that suddenly took over my life. I initially thought God had forgotten about me, or I thought maybe he was punishing me for the bad things I had done in my life? But I came to realize that what I viewed as a crisis...has actually been a catalyst for an encounter with the Living God... And my life now is a much better place!
This book is a memoir of radical change. You will learn all about the hopeless broken girl I used to be. It's out of that brokenness you will meet the woman I was destined to become. It's a story about learning how to make lemonade out of life's lemons. So take a journey with me and discover hope!
Here's what some have said about my memoir:
"Lori, I got your book! It is wonderful. So far (I'm only half way through), I can relate to nearly everything in it. It's great that your husband did an intro. He sounds like a great guy. I'm going to print it up so I have it for those times when I'm away from the computer. I'll probably underline and highlight some things too."
"Your book speaks about overcoming obstacles. It speaks about struggles through adversity as well as perseverance, sensitivity as well as insensitivity, pain and suffering, hope and faith. Ultimately, it speaks of your personal affirmations of God’s unconditional love!"
"I genuinely believe that regardless of whether ones limitations are in fact, physical, or emotional, everyone should read this AMAZING book, which inspires us to find God’s purpose in our lives."
"Blessing in the Storm is just wonderful. It will be a revelation to so many people that someone who is "disabled" can have so much joy. I pray that readers will see how Christ has worked in your life and want what you have in Him. "
"Lori’s memoir, underneath the surface, is not really about her struggle with Muscular Dystrophy, though it is the catalyst for every message in it. It’s mostly about her plight spiritually."
"Lori is genuine, honest, purposeful and direct with her memoir. It’s filled with day-to-day stories and experiences that have carved her into a beautiful woman of God, one who is still learning how to lean and showing others how to do so right alongside her."
