Lore Cottone was born and raised in Kentucky. Although her family attended church, she was the first of her family to begin a personal relationship with Christ. When she was 13 years old, Lore gave her life to Christ at a church camp. She attended Liberty University and pursued a Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Kentucky. Lore enjoyed working in the adoption field for some time before marrying the love of her life, Michael. Lore and Michael have been married for 29 years and have four sons, Graham, Jake, Titus and Blake. When children came along Lore was blessed to be able to stay at home with them for almost 18 years. At that time God gave her the opportunity to be the founding Executive Director of a pro-life, non-profit ministry in Austin, TX. After six years, she was then led to leave this position to begin writing a book about raising her oldest son. It is Lore's great hope that God will use their story to comfort and inspire many. Michael and Lore now live in Dripping Springs, Texas and attend One Chapel church in Austin, Texas where Lore serves as the Groups Pastor.
