When Lori Boruff ministers to those who may find themselves in a broken place, she does so from the heart of experience. Having spent years hanging on to a well-kept secret of rape, attempted suicide, and parenting two sons who chose difficult paths, Lori can relate to the hurts and hopeless feelings faced by women in ministry.
She can also help bring healing and hope into those same broken places- sprinkled with humor!
Lori’s life coaching experience and passion collide at Christian Communicator Conferences as she lovingly leads women through their fears to find the clarity and confidence they need to speak fearlessly and love abundantly as ambassadors for Christ.
She provides keynote addresses for Stonecroft Ministries, leads workshops and retreats, volunteers, and has been a guest on JCTV, CTN, Moody Radio, Cec and Me Blogtalk Radio, and My Journey of Faith Radio- as well as her own radio show Hope101.net.
Her book, Hope in the Ruins- A Rescue and Recovery Plan for Hearts in Crisis, guides women through fear, unforgiveness and unmet expectations to discover hope in the midst of the mess.
Lori loves living life together with her husband Rick where they reside in the quaint town of Aledo, IL. They are the proud parents of two adult sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and their fast-growing grandsons.
