I wish you were my neighbor - I'd certainly enjoy getting to know you. Have you ever had dream, where in the dream you were doing something and it really felt like you were actually doing the activity in the dream? ... and in the morning you felt exausted because of what you did in your dream? In my dream I am looking for something, and going from room to room, closet to closet, and drawer to drawer - emptying it out and then putting everything back when I can't find what I am looking for I go on to the next room. In my dream my family follows me in my crazy search from room to room but not until I get to the garage (my husband's sacred room) does he ask what I am searching for. I tell them I am searching for God. Lori, I am searching for God but it didn't dawn on me until your video clip I'm looking in the wrong places, like in my dream - I am searching for God in people. God is in prayer, in the bible, in church. You know I don't feel foresaken or lonely, I feel God's power and love, and it scares me. That is a strange thing to think and say. It is a hard thing to even type - my youngest daughter is sick. She begs me, especially at night "mommy, please let me go home." I know God is suppose to be our #1 but I fall short of this, I love my family, my kids more. If God is wanting me to release her and say if it is God's will then ok... I could say it but I wouldn't mean it. I guess that is why I am searching for God, for answers, for a miracle...Thank for your videos. All of them.Peace, Dawn

Thanks for the great analogy. Now I just have to figure out how to listen!! what is the message??

The still small voice
Thank you Lori. You put it so well. I know that my God connection "GPS" works much better when I am quiet inside. I like to think that its like Elijah's still small voice rather than raging thunder. I also can't hear when I am arrogant inside!

great analogy of life!
i loved your little analogy... to wake people up. Listen & look for the signs, instead of walking around with blinders on! learn your lessons, and move on - don't dwell in the past. Just grow to be a better person.

I have a GPS but the one you speak of is far better than the one I possess. Thanks and Blessings,Doyle

Lori, you helped me several times
First I heard from you about souls which parted from us and have perhaps to go to Gehennom. You called it hospital for the soul. Unpleasant, but necessary. My husband had just died and I was worried about him. You helped me. Since then you won my heart and I like everything you talk or write about. Now I e n j o y yourMini-Lectures in the films. Thank you!
