As a little girl Lori used an old wooden hay trailer to practice for the beauty pageant she dreamed of being in. Her story of achieving that dream over 25 years later is magical, but not without the trials and setbacks that every person can relate to.College, marriage, and a career working with husband Carl, kept her more than busy, as the dream lay on the shelf collecting dust. After nine years of marriage, Rachel and then Luke were born to the happy couple. Children change our lives in so many ways but nothing like the new mother was expecting. With the birth of both of her children, Lori had severe post-partum depression and psychosis. The illness left her physically, emotionally and spiritually bankrupt. What could such a broken vessel possibly have to offer the world or her little family? The only solution seemed to end the suffering by taking her own life. But in the midst of her greatest trial God reached down and performed a miracle in Lori’s life. Her story of how her life was restored to something that she had only dreamed of as a child, will inspire you to achieve something remarkable when you seek out God's doors of promise.
