I have a secret you must know first thing: I AM NO EXPERT! Yes, you read that correctly, I’m a wife and mom sharing what I am learning in my life.

Here’s the short story on how Frog’s Lilypad came to be. In 2008, living in western Montana, I learned about blogs after coming across one while searching for a singing group. Little did I know the author would become one of my dearest friends and encouragements. When I started this site, my husband helped me with the name since I wanted it to be a part of who I am. (My husband’s elderly uncle gave me the nickname Frog before he passed away.) I spent several hours one day trying to come up with the name, but within a matter of minutes, my husband nailed it; he’s awesome like that! You can read the long story of THE BEGINNING OF FROG’S LILYPAD.

WHO I AM:

My name is Lori and I am a wife to an amazing husband. Momma to one mighty fine young adult who still thinks it’s awesome I look up at him when we are talking.
I am a girl of the 70s, and that means I’m a lot closer to 50 than I used to be. But, I’m okay with where I am at this stage of life. In fact, I shared a cute story about how I’m Living Life to the Fullest.


I taught school for 12 years before hanging up my ruler to fulfill the career of my dreams.  While teaching was a dream job for me, being a full-time wife and mother, caring for our home is my dream career. In fact, it’s not a career but a ministry I am called to do.
I could write a list a mile long of things I love, but I won’t. Here are just a few of those things: cooking and baking, knitting, flowers (yellow roses and daisies are my favorites), frogs, the colors green and yellow, and clean fresh smells. While I have many things I love, there are some things I dislike: wet socks, wet sleeves, clutter, horrible smells, whiners, and dishonesty.
