Lori grew up on a dairy farm in southern Minnesota. Lori’s passionate heart for animals, especially dogs, lead her to become a dog groomer for 20 years of her life. She operated her very own successful and prosperous grooming business. Around the age of 40, her passionate heart shifted from devoting all her time to dogs to time with people and began a career in the retail and customer service industry.
Lori left her full-time career as a retail manager in August 2019 when The VOICE Ministry was birthed. God spoke to Lori in Fall of 2012 giving her the name The VOICE Ministry. God gave VOICE an acronym which is Victory Ours In Christ Evermore. (1 Corinthians 15:57 KJV)
Lori experienced sexual abuse in her pre-teen and early teenage years. The sexual abuse became the very thing that lead her to her salvation with God the Father only made possible through Jesus Christ. (John 3:16-17 KJV, John 14:6 KJV)
Lori shares her faith journey began with forgiveness. She had not realized it began nor fully understood the power of forgiveness at that time, so that she too may be forgiven for her sins. Many years before Lori was saved, as a young teenage girl, she looked directly at the very man that sexually abused her, her father, and forgave him. One evening he came forward and apologized to her and immediately she was moved with compassion for him and forgave him. (Matthew 9:35-36 KJV, Ephesians 4:32 KJV) Lori remembers as if looking at him through her Heavenly Father’s eyes with an unconditional love. Lori and her father’s relationship always remained in love for one another. Throughout Lori’s life she has endured through many trials, tribulations, and storms victoriously. (1 Corinthians 15:57 KJV)
Lori confidently has said Yes and Amen to Gods calling for her life so that her divine purpose may be fulfilled. (2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV, Psalm 138:8 KJV) In training and preparation for an extensive amount of time, she operates in many of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:16 KJV, 1 Corinthians 12:7-10 KJV, Galatians 5:22-23 KJV) Her strongest Gift of the Holy Spirit is the Gift of Faith. She explains she literally clings to her faith in God and Thy Word of God. (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV, Psalm 119:105 KJV) Lori is Holy Spirit filled and lead by the voice of God.
What does The VOICE Ministry look like?
One evening Lori asked God in prayer, “What will The VOICE Ministry look like?” She quickly heard, “The Ministry of Jesus Christ.” Soon after Lori heard from God, “It will not be man-made.” This is a branch of the Church with no walls. (John 15:5 KJV)
The VOICE Ministry’s mission is The Great Commission that God spoke to her in a dream also in the Fall of 2012. In the dream she recalls a large body of water, soon after she was called to be an evangelist by her pastor. Suddenly, the word “GO” was largely revealed in the sky above, and was told “Lori, GO.” She awoke to Matthew 28:19-20 KJV.
God also revealed to Lori a divine assignment for The VOICE Ministry through His Word in Isaiah 61:1-11 KJV. The VOICE Ministry preaches and teaches Thy Word of God including repentance, brings healing to the broken hearted, proclaims freedom to the captives, brings deliverance to them that are bound and MORE, as it is written, Glory to God.
Lori’s surrendered heart and will is God’s heart and will to save and change lives, cities, and nations forever. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10 KJV) Lori and The VOICE Ministry takes no credit, she makes her point truly clear that she gives all the Glory to God and Jesus Christ.
"GO ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you, and lo, I AM with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
Matthew 28:19-20 KJV
