About Me


I’m Lori and I’m so glad you’ve found me.  I am a blessed survivor who shares openly about my life and the faithfulness of God.

I live in a little town on the California central coast where I am minutes from the ocean and minutes from the mountains.  I married the the cutest guy in our church youth group and God surprised us with three amazing gifts; Jessica, Cory and Olivia.   In my life before kids I was a sixth grade teacher and part time assistant principal.

  1. Hi Lori, I am wondering how to check and see if I’ve missed any posts. I can only see the most recent one that I receive in an email message.

    1. Hi Carol. My blog site address is lorimargo.wordpress.com. If you go there you can see all the posts. Another thought is I could email you my post before this one (I think that might be the only one you missed =). If you want to email me I am at Lori_Margo@yahoo.com. I could then email you back. Thanks for being such an “encouraging follower” of my blog. Blessings!
