I love doing life with this man!
Hi! I'm Lori Kay Ziegler and I'm happy you stopped by today. I write about the wonderful, interesting, complicated journey of being a parent of adult children. When I became the mom of Nick and Kati, a passion was ignited inside to master my new role in life.
Now that Nick and Kati are grown and married, I'm learning that I need to embrace new habits and practices along the way so that our relationships will continue to thrive. I'm passionate about many things, but especially about building and enjoying a strong relationship with my adult children and their new spouses.
I'm not in a hurry for grandchildren, but if I end up with that blessing, I know I will be passionate about building strong relationships with my grandchildren as well.
Everyone has a family. Enjoying great relationships in that family takes grace, creativity, and humility. It's work I love and I'm happy to share what I learn along the way.
You can also read about our adventure as missionaries if you start at the beginning of my blog.
I promised my kids several years ago that I would write about our adventure of living in Africa for 14 years. Nick was born in Nairobi and Kati in Johannesburg. They have a lot of their own memories, but I wanted to fill in the stories from those early years in Kenya and South Africa. I'm not sure Nick knows he lived in a converted chicken coop, for example.
I grew up in a small town in Michigan, lived in Africa and at the moment am settled in San Antonio, Texas. I marvel at my journey every day. If I hadn't moved to New York City in 1983 and studied the Bible my life wouldn't be anything close to what I enjoy now. My faith in God and my decision to not simply read the Bible, but do what it says, shapes every part of my life.
