Lori Josifek has worn many hats in her life as a wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, choir director, artist, and writer. Devoting her life to teaching music, writing, and poetry, among many subjects, Lori has freely spread her wealth of arts to children outside the conventional education system for more than thirty-eight years.
In her university years, Lori pursued a career in education and earned a teaching credential but did not stay in the public-school system long. After marriage and having four children, her goals refocused to providing home education to her children. Under her discipline, they earned a structured and full education beginning with music lessons around the piano every morning, Bible study and academic principles following, physical education in the afternoon, and “homework” to be completed before the next day.
During these years, Lori was inspired to start a children’s choir whose presentations ministered at elderly facilities. When her children graduated on to higher education, Lori continued to teach writing classes to homeschooled children in the community.
Her writing is succinct, yet thoughtfully artistic as she paints a gentle message of her testimony of faith in her storytelling. Many of her stories and poems are inspired by her love of nature and the numerous pets who enriched her family life over the years. Lori lives in Nampa, Idaho with her husband and enjoys crocheting, camping, cooking, gardening, and spending time with her family.
