When I was in about fifth grade, a new girl came to our school. I was asked to help her find her way through those first few days, which I was happy to do.
As a result, she invited me to her house. She had nice parents. But here’s the deal: while I stood in her home, amid all of the kindness extended to me, I had a spiritual crisis: I realized I didn’t really like the girl.
My name is Lori Doerneman. I live in the Wichita Diocese. I have been married to my husband Russ for 30 years and we have eight children.
Four years ago our son Mitchell announced that he wanted to enter the seminary. He was a senior in high school.
My thoughts at that time:
I hope you are doing SUPERBLY WELL TODAY.
Eric and I are knee-deep into about four different projects and we are respecting our need for PEACE and we are NOT pushing ourselves to get today’s podcast recorded, posted and such.
As I made that decision, you know what helped me? Fruit.
