My name is Lori and I have been on staff at Hands of Hope (a PMC in Tucson) since 2006. I have a Master of Science in Professional Counseling and Addictions Counseling from Grand Canyon University, I am the Recovery Services Manager at Hands of Hope providing grief counseling for all types of pregnancy loss as well as abuse recovery, and I serve as the Chapter Leader for Deeper Still of Southern AZ.
I had an abortion in 1984 and first sought healing 20 years later. I attended a Deeper Still Retreat as well as the retreat training in Southern CA in 2015 and we had our first AZ retreat in 2016. I am divorced, my only child BJ is in heaven, and I share my home with dogs and cats. I love the desert SW, I enjoy hiking, being out in the desert and the mountains, and nature photography is a hobby of mine. My life verse is Gen 50:20 “You meant it for evil but God used it for good so that by this many shall be saved”. My passion is to see women and men healed, especially from the wounds of abortion.
The Southern AZ chapter is located in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, and we hold our retreats in a private retreat center in Hereford, AZ near the Huachuca Mountains.
You will be welcomed to our retreats by our amazing team of compassionate and well-trained volunteers who look forward to walking with you through the weekend. Take this time to step away from the responsibilities of your life, allow your soul to rest, and let yourself focus on your healing in this warm and peaceful environment. Our retreats are free of charge and include lodging and meals for the weekend.
