So, this is us, the Armendariz family. We live in rural New Mexico where we grow produce and raise cattle and sheep. My name is Lora. I’m a Christian author, speaker, wife, and mother who spends her days growing vegetables, caring for livestock, doing dishes, and loving my family. My husband, Jovani, works hard caring for our land and animals. Our daughters Adela (age 8) and Micaela (age 6) like to stay busy feeding dogie lambs and chasing cats. We are also proud to sell naturally grown grass-fed beef and lamb as freezer beef through A & G Family Meats.

My Blog, The Beautiful Day Project. The Beautiful Day Project started a six years ago when our twin girls, Isabela and Micaela, were born into the world three months too soon. God took our little one, Isabela, home to Heaven and Micaela began her life with a traumatic brain injury that resulted in cerebral palsy, vision impairments, and serious developmental delays.
These changes in our life scared me. Our lives had been on such a different path. Our first daughter, Adela, was born when we lived in Argentina. We had happily lived and worked on ranches in Argentina, Australia, and Russia. We loved our life and had never planned the changes that happened after the twins were born.
Determined to not just survive, but also thrive, in our new circumstances, I started the Beautiful Day Project. I know God is all around my life and His fingerprints are beautiful when I become still enough to see His work.
Join me at my blog as I share our journey with parenting and growing in faith.
I love connecting with new friends around the world through Facebook and Twitter. Oh, and I Pinterest, with a giggly heart, about whatever takes my fancy.
