Lori Wildenberg, mom of four and wife of thirty-one years, has a full resume when it comes to parenting and family living. At one point she had four kids, five and under! Because one of her young adult children struggles with same sex attraction, she’s discovering the balance between parenting with grace and truth, and living in the tension between heartache and hope. Lori, co-founder of 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting, has more than twenty-five years experience working with children and parents. She’s an author, national speaker, co-columnist of Parenting Prose found in MARRIAGE Magazine, and a licensed parent & family educator. She has spoken or led workshops in Colorado, Minnesota, Texas, and California. Soon Illinois and Florida will be added to the list! She weaves transparency, warmth, and gentle humor into her realistic approach to parenting kids today.
Groups such as MOPS, PTAs/PTOs, parenting conferences, small groups, and women’s clubs have invited Lori to deliver her message of empowered parenting. Her faith in the Lord combined with her love of parenting and passion for teaching are poured into her 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting courses and presentations. She’s also available for parent consulting and preschool-elementary teacher in-service training. Lori has contributed to many Christian books: Pearls of Promise Devotional, Mother of Pearl, Facing our Fears, Overwhelmed, A Cup of Comfort Devotional, But Lord I was Happy Shallow, Mom Overboard, and 12 Great Choices Smart Moms Make. She is a team member and writer for The M.O.M. Initiative , the Professional Learning Board, Faith Village, and the Pearl Girls Blog. Her co-authored book with ministry partner Becky Danielson, EMPOWERED PARENTS: Putting Faith First is endorsed by “Christian Parenting Today” and “Shine” magazines.
Lori and Tom attend WaterStone Community Church in Littleton, Colorado. Along with their teen and young adult kids, Lori and Tom enjoy snow skiing, hiking, and water sports. The Wildenbergs and their labradoodle live in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
