Lori Jackson Owner, Curator & Author

I’m Lori, the face behind Choosing Wisdom. I believe wisdom goes beyond being smart or having just basic knowledge.  It is the culmination of experiences that help us become. While each of our challenges is unique, we all have the opportunity to choose how we will react, learn and grow from those experiences.  My journey has taught me that I don’t have all the answers, but I do have a voice to share what I’ve learned. Choosing Wisdom began as a vehicle to follow my dream of writing and has evolved into a means of sharing my ah-ha moments. I’m not sure where this journey will take me but I’m here to enjoy the ride – I hope you do too.

I have a passion for the family and feel blessed to have raised our four children with a supportive and loving husband and friend. I love spending time with my family, biking with my husband, reading, and of course writing.

I love words. Words can change your perspective – they can uplift, discourage, enlighten, or burden you. I am honored to serve as Lori’s editor on Choosing Wisdom. Sharing our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is a delight and privilege. I’m currently gaining my own nuggets of wisdom as I mother of two children with an age difference of almost 9 years. I have a passion for life-long learning, reading, cooking, and eating. My husband is my soulmate and best friend – and most likely the only one who could put up with my shenanigans.

Hey there! My name is Krista Palo. I am the owner and creator of Evolve.

Change is possible.
