Hello, and welcome to Pieces of the Journey! I'm Lori, and I'd love for you to come and experience pieces of my journey as a military wife, mother, writer, singer, and person of deep Christian faith. Sometimes the road is easy, filled with straight paths and lovely flowers. Sometimes the journey halts for practical needs like tying boots or eating lunch. Sometimes the road stops at a breathtaking view. And sometimes the journey is hard, every step a battle, muscles aching and breath burning, but the desire to press on to the end is overwhelming. My ultimate goal is to live my life in such a way that others are encouraged, inspired, and drawn towards Jesus.
