When Lori began her public speaking journey, her voice wobbled so much people thought she was about to cry. (Maybe she was.) Training and practice enabled her to conquer her fears and share the messages God gives her with poise, confidence, and wobble-free delivery. She loves empowering reluctant and fearful speakers to do the same. As the author of three (soon to be five) devotional books, including Refresh Your Faith, Uncommon Devotions from Every Book of the Bible (Our Daily Bread Publishing) and the 2016 Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year, Hungry for God … Starving for Time, Lori knows it’s crucial for writers to become speakers.
Lori’s a women’s ministry speaker, author, editor, blogger, minister’s wife, and healthcare professional. A contest-winning Toastmasters International speaker (Advanced Communicator Gold, Advanced Leader Bronze), Lori loves to use stories to impart spiritual truth. As a Christian Communicators graduate, she’s served as the keynote speaker at Women to Women retreats, church events, military wives gatherings, and homeschool conventions in the United States, Japan, and Mexico. A popular conference speaker, she’s served on faculty at Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, Florida Christian Writers Conference, and other conferences across the South.
Encouraging, inspiring, and entertaining are the words people use most to describe her. You’ll find Lori pondering the marvelous and the mundane on her blog, Hungry for God. . . Starving for Time (www.lorihatcher.com). She and her pastor/husband live delightfully close to their four grandchildren in Lexington, South Carolina.
