Say hello to Pearl Girl, Lori Wildenberg! Lori Wildenberg is the co-founder of 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting and loves speaking and writing about raising kids. She’s a licensed parent-family educator and certified teacher, passionate about mentoring parents. Since Lori, her husband, and four kids are perfectly imperfect, her approach to family life is real, honest, and warm-hearted. This style makes her a favorite speaker at women’s and parent events. In her seminars, she offers practical and easily applicable techniques based on living out 1 Corinthians 13 love. Lori is co-author of EMPOWERED PARENTS: Putting Faith First, a contributor to many other Christian books, a radio station guest, a member of The M.O.M. Initiative team, a curriculum writer for teacher development at the Professional Learning Board, and is co-columnist of Parenting Prose seen in Marriage Magazine.

Share a little about how you became a writer.
I’ve always loved writing but never pictured myself as an author. While I was teaching a parenting course, many of the parents wanted me to put the information into book form (I thought maybe they could take notes!) Anyway..that is exactly what happened. I used the curriculum I was teaching to co-author EMPOWERED PARENTS: Putting Faith First (Wildenberg & Danielson). I’ve been writing ever since!
Favorite Scripture or Life Verse?
My favorite piece of scripture is the well-known and well-loved 1 Corinthians 13.
What motivates you to write for charity?
Actually, writing for Margaret’s Mother of Pearl was my first experience writing for charity. I love the causes she has chosen for the Pearl Girls to support.
