Hi, I’m Lori Laws and I have Mitochondrial Disease – a Muscular Dystrophy. My body has been battling this disease for over a decade, but over time my spirit has learned how to soar with God high above my circumstances!

profile_Lori_125widthI love Jesus!  I love everything Jesus!  I really enjoy lifting up and encouraging others. You must know that you are never alone! It’s my passion to write about my personal experiences to make you realize that God is in the intricate details of our lives. I am here to share things with you, encourage you, and to let you know there is hope… especially if you feel this isn’t the place in life you envisioned for yourself! I’ve been there, and I know firsthand that it can be a dark and scary place.


I’m all about pointing the way, and sometimes that means carrying people to the only One that can truly turn the tides. That’s why I write and blog! And whatever happens next, I will give God all the glory! I will always give God all the glory!  Hallelujah!



I’d also like to share with you a video of my hometown at Christmas … Bethlehem, Pennsylvania…


I am strong because I know weakness.
I am compassionate because I have experienced suffering.
I am alive because I am a fighter.
I am wise because I have been foolish.
I can laugh because I have known sadness.
I can love because I have known loss.
