Closest to My Lullaby Bear

This is the closest I've come to my lullaby bear without initials or postage

5 Ways to Survive Adversity

5 things to survive adversity

Never listen to your doctor
Keep your deepest thoughts to yourself
Always smile-even when in pain
Wear makeup and nice clothes-beg, borrow, steal, thrift
Always have a game plan-but don't necessarily act on it 

Peace and love,
Lori Jean

The only hit song I made on my OWN Finally Ready for the World!!

Like Rebecca Campbell I too dimmed my light and hid my talents a secret!

I found my gift revealed to me in my mid twenties driving down the road in my car when an entire book came to me. I let it go to other obstacles in my life.

I found my voice after realizing it wasn't Madonna's echo when doing karaoke! To my surprise and astonishment kept that to myself too!

So Put Up by Lori Jean   Finally ready for the world!!

I also want to thank Carrie Green for giving me inspiration to continue!

Bit of Happiness

Political Glamour Pop??!!

You know I'm tired of being followed around politically with threats to me up all the way back since I'm a child. Yes, I am, was, maybe now cute!! Go live your life and your actions on your own! I've got mine to say to you!!!

You use me
You choose me
To make your way
I'm not a dream
I'm just s girl
Go your own political way

No time for games
Always have to run
Brush my teeth
Put in my lip gloss
Hurry, scratch, snap, pop,
Hop away from you.

Become a Successful Singer After Raising Your Kids

I had to wonder when I decided to write this if I would be alone in this. Searching Google I found to be-so here I am.

Ultimately I had never liked taking orders from someone else or being told I couldn't do something. Much training has also brought me to never use the word can't but to instead find out how. This is how I created my own label using three different names and trying things differently each time.

Being a single mom, I had made the choice to put any of my desires on hold. When I decided to return to school and loving, always connecting, and seemingly easy to me music appeared to be. So I chose music. I found I could throw together my first album in a matter of months-with no previous experience in a relatively rough draft for the most part except for a couple of the songs with a strong lyric theme.

Now apparently there is a business to all this I had thought. Great! I love business and the business end of things. Rules I don't know to live by in an industry I don't know-even more perfect. This was my beginning to my successful career as a singer!! Check out my work and feel inspired.

Lori Jean Song Being Featured on Beyond the Dawn Radio

A surprise song of mine will be played during their fantastic show starting at 4:00om pst Monday the 14th of Sept 15'. I don't even know which one it is!! My relentless recording and submitting payed off. I knew it would go one way or the other. I had to shake things up if I wanted to go forward. I have been getting more radio AirPlay as a result. It could have gone the other way. #iPhonerecordingartist

Lori Jean Lullaby Bear is Up!!

Sleep My Darling Angel, the lullaby that I wrote, is in the bear. All you have to do is push the belly and the song will play. There is an on/off switch as well. The voice box is in the bear's back placed in an opening. Takes 3 AAA batteries that are not included. Can only sell in bulk right now, sorry. (Looks of the bear may vary but will always be cute, lovable, and cuttable.)

Short Paper-Endings and Beginnings

I hope my teacher doesn't mind me sharing this. Last assignment for class Adv Creative Writing. I want to say I love Ned and Tim before you start reading this. These feelings in this were temporarily all perpetuated through me out of insecurity-same for the teacher-he just had to do his job-and he did a great one at that.

I learned at times I wanted to give up-right up to this class with writing. I doubted myself as a writer feeling I had fooled myself into trying to be something I'm not. I kept getting caught up with personal experiences and couldn't find my way back to me, who I was, and the form of writing I had before I was shot in the head and left with permanent neurological damage in 2011. I had written and published several books up at Barnes and Noble previous to this. This was the final chapter of where I would go with writing in this class, or even finishing this degree. I had reached the final line and was now turning back looking over my shoulder. I knew the headphones on my ears gently pressed against the foam came so easy and comforting to me and felt this was a cheat way out of an intellectual career listening to music. But what I ended up learning was that I was a songwriter for sure, found my best teacher-though I hated him sometimes-knew I had to get past that line-hated Ned Euphorya and Tim Cheatle too at times-my best colleagues to my fear of failure and rejecting help-but now know I'm going to be a damn good songwriter. I even opened up to my singing with more confidence and accept myself more now than ever. I learned to accept myself and my fate-though I still spurn-that's natural for me.

I would like Steven Tyler to take in this role for me of Pia's records. I think this would help other adolescents with their dreams and become a role model for them and I think he'd get a kick out of it. As a woman coming out for others, my success would prove you can do anything and still persevere even in the worst of conditions hanging on to your limbs literally at times-had other pertinent injuries to my back and arms. A comedy is a good place for this personal story of mine where I had never thought I could complete one with so much clarity with my my point. I was so pleased. I have always loved comedy and that it allowed me to connect with my family this way in some true family events. I would be very pleased to be led into directing with this given genre.
