About

Follower of Jesus. Seeker of truth. Conservative Anabaptist. INFP. Human. Translator. Teacher.

My name is Lori. I am a Kansas farm girl doing life in the town of Mae Sariang, Thailand, in Mae Hong Son province. Most days I talk Thai and English to my friends, and seldom do I have a chance  to speak Pennsylvania Dutch, my mother tongue. I spend my days teaching English as  foreign language to high schoolers.

Writing is an outlet for me. This blog is simple, and does not claim to be anything great or amazing. It only serves as an outlet.

I am a bit disorganized and lose things easily. I am the kind of person who goes through the buffet line at the local haystack benefit supper and comes out with a plate twice as full as the others. I am a night owl who just really likes animals and coffee and mountains and trains and rivers and words and translation and interesting people. And just life in general, I guess.

Wet socks, containers without lids, lost items, and people who turn up their nose at other cultures are things I do not enjoy. That, and bananas.

Poetry is another love of mine, and my first book of poetry was published 5 years ago, entitled, Echoes of Eternity. To order a copy of this book for $6.99, plus $2.50 shipping to anywhere in the States, please leave a comment below with your email address.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. We recently started an online Mennonite blog directory (https://themennonitegame.com) which is intentionally simple –just a list to help bloggers and readers connect. Would you be interested in adding your blog to the list? If so, you can fill out this form (http://goo.gl/forms/UnTbNnVaKaUKd4VN2) which asks for an affirmation of the ’63 Mennonite Confession of Faith, a square photo, and a blog description (50 words or less).

    You might also be interested in the facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/mennogame) where anyone can share their blog posts.

    Thanks for considering it! Tabitha

    P.S. I love all the photos you attach to your blog posts.

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog today with a post about Lucinda Miller’s memoir. I do have another reader from Thailand, but I’m pretty sure she does not have an anabaptist heritage! You website is very inviting, Lori.
