Lori and Stand2Serve
It was in 2013 that Lori and Robin, Founder of Stand2Serve, first met. Lori's talent as an original musician and songwriter, mixed with Robin's passion for writing poetry and organizing, led to the creation of their original groundbreaking album "Limitless". Friendship, talent and love of God and America and those who serve are the inspiration for these unique creations.
The beauty of Lori’s vocals and songwriting was born from a life filled with challenges. The emotion and sincerity you hear in her voice are from the heart. All of us will face death and God at some point in our lives, but Lori faced this stark reality at the young age of 24, as a mother of three small children. Few people can take the raw emotion of facing one's own mortality, and still stand firm, with an unshakeable faith in God and His goodness.
Lori poured all the pain and emotion she endured with her illness and life's adversities into songs of praise and worship to a Mighty God and Risen Savior. It is Lori’s faith and trust in God and His promises in Christ that we see her strength and inspiration shine brightest.
God's promise of eternal salvation in our Lord Jesus Christ is why we "rejoice in all circumstances" - even a pandemic or personal illness. Because we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.
Lori overcame – she is victorious in Christ.
The Apostle Paul said in Romans 8:37: “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”
