Reflections on the Coronavirus: Hitting Close to Home
Regardless of where you stand on “preparedness”, the sheer disregard for community is against what we stand for as a nation. What’s more, it’s against what many of us stand for as Christians.
Thankful 30: Day 5
Day Five: I am thankful for VOTING 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 I took my daughter with me to hit the polls today. 10 important propositions we’re on the ballots for Texans to consider. I am so saddened that people often miss these elections because it isn’t presidential, therefore not important. Remember y’all: the president might sit in the…
Thankful 30: Day 1
Will I keep up with this? I don’t know. Either way I believe it is important to give thanks and reflect on good things during this season–and all the time. The holiday season has a tendency to raise spirits and stir up all the feels that other times of the year just don’t reach in…
The change from LAC Designs to Designing Lorri
While I’ve had success making a brand change on every other platform, Facebook will not allow me to update my Facebook page unless there is an official post on my company website. So here it is, Facebook, I have officially changed my company name to Designing Lorri and done away with my old logo and…
If You Aren’t Going to Open it, Don’t “Like” it.
Have you ever encountered someone that says “I saw you post about ___ on Facebook”, and you begin a conversation only to find out that they are basing their knowledge of a post entirely on the title and the little excerpt? Or have you shared a blog post and the number of likes on Facebook…
Blatant Ramblings: Lesson Plans and Education

It is a little frustrating that Common Core has plagued Pinterest and other places with its filth, I have to search and search for Classical…
2016 Republican Candidate Review
I am not going to talk about each candidate. I am not even going to analyze their standpoints, there are enough articles that do that. These are merely my opinions. If I did not mention them, they weren’t even an option for me to begin with. Night before last FOX aired the first prime-time Republican debate…
Pending Politically / Uber Thoughts / Puppy
I am working on a super long political post about the GOP debate. It will be up by Saturday night, however I have decided to take a break and get ready for bed…just for sanity. There are a lot of candidates. Some I have a more in depth opinion of and others it is just…
If you aren’t going to eat it, if it isn’t endangering you, don’t kill it.
I have the same philosophy on animals as I do humans. If it is not hurting you in anyway, or potentially going to hurt you—don’t kill it. I am from a rural community where hunting is standard. For many families, the deer that are killed legally during hunting season, or their cows that are slaughtered,…
“Well I wasn’t wrong…”
Politics, religion, taboo subjects for work. I value my friends that have stuck around despite disagreements; you help me to have no regrets about the friends I’ve lost or will never have, simply because they will not listen to my side of the story. Being silent is not something I believe in. Opinions and thoughts…
