Hey guys!  Welcome to my blog.  This will basically be a mudroom for my stray thoughts and life updates.  Feel free to share any of my blog posts that you find interesting . . . because if you start a blog and no one is around to see it, did the trees make a sound in the river of your heart's ocean?  Exactly.

I'm not going to lie. The last six months have taken me down through there. I cannot begin to tell you exactly how difficult my life has been since accepting this assignment that God placed on my life. I know that I have been known to drop off the radar and then "pop out" with stuff, but what looks like a pop out to everyone else, looks like a "struggle" life to me. It looks like going to bed late and waking up early. It looks like a barrage of random attacks from Satan. It looks like me questioning whether I really heard God or if I'm just crazy. It looks like literally crying and wiping away tears as I type. It ain't pretty. No one around you, no matter how well-intentioned they may be, truly understands the hell that you're going through. If I don't know anything else, I know for sure that the devil did not want me writing this book. As a matter of fact, the battle had gotten so intense, that God put me on the heart of a prophetic woman all the way in Canada. The process often made me feel as if I was being punished for something. Her words were oftentimes the only things that got me through, and I used them as a reminder that God hadn't forgotten about me. She didn't even know I was writing a book.



So I pushed through. I'm not exactly sure who needed this book. I'm not exactly sure what the devil was hoping to stop by stopping me, but I know one thing...it must be BIG. At one point, I was literally begging God to "Let this bitter cup pass!" LOL! I know, I'm nowhere near Jesus, but y'all it felt like I was taking some licks on behalf of this thing! But I just kept going, because I knew there was victory on the other side of this somewhere. So please don't let it be in vain. Maybe it's for just a few people, and maybe it's for the world. All I can say is that I did my part, and now it's up to God to do the rest. I'm not going to lie and say I had a blast writing this book, but I will say that the book is dope, and even better than my first one. So dear Lord, get this book out to whoever Satan didn't want to have it. If You use this book to bless me, thank You. But even if not, it was a privilege and an honor to be trusted to go to work for You in this manner. - Lori

Alright so boom, the year is 2017. Sometimes songs get stuck in my head, and the night before, the first verse of "Wipe Me Down" dropped in my spirit and would not leave. I was up early and getting ready for an event with my line sisters (Oo-oop! DST, you already know!). I was just being silly thinking my friends on Instagram might understand my humor...MIGHT! I decided to share it to Facebook and that's where it took off. It was shared thousands of times and appeared on TheShaderoom and Worldstar Hip Hop. There were articles written about it on places like VH1.com, VIBE.com and Yahoo...and I was still in my PJs!! Lorght hammercy, I DEFINITELY would have changed clothes had I known a million people were going to see it! After this, people started calling me the "My God Today Lady." As crazy as it sounds, I have been approached by strangers and asked for pictures out in public. I even earned a "follow" from rapper Foxx A Milliyone who is the genius behind the lyric. What people didn't know is that I was going through a divorce at the time and had just signed off on my papers a day or so before. When I went viral, I felt like the Lord had reached down, picked me up, and said, "I just wanted to show you that I'm still with you no matter what." It's a pretty good story to tell during those awkward cocktail hours.

My first video blog! I discuss how I decided to choose fineness as a lifestyle.
