How do you pack nearly thirty years of living into a paragraph? The effort reminds me of how I have spent many of those years packing their accumulation into boxes to be unpacked in a new home.
The years immediately following high school are only worthy of note in that they belong to my own personal “Hall of Shame” and it was from their grip the Lord saved me in 1984. That year I did graduate from FSU, but, of greater importance, I married my dear husband. Steve was a pilot for 21 years in the US Navy, to whom we owe our tour of this beautiful country. In almost 24 years of marriage, we have lived in 8 different states and 12 different locations. While Steve has been a pilot both in and out of the Navy, it has been my privilege, in the midst of many moves, to educate our three children at home. Stacy, 21, is now a senior at Belhaven College; John, 17, is a senior and Luke, 15, is a sophomore in the Nott Home School. While the Lord has blessed us as a family with many wonderful experiences, the daily tasks of being a homemaker and both, teaching and learning with, our children have been the substance of my life. I wouldn’t want to spend it any other way. We currently live in the boonies of Mississippi, not unlike the boonies of Myakka in which I grew up. One of my favorite Bible verses is also, I believe, the summation of my life. I Thessalonians 4:11 says, “. . . to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you.” God helping, I have done so.

As I sit here reading about many great adventures, success in business, stories of the ones we love, and the ones we have lost, I wondered what I could say about my life in the last 30 years. Though time has passed and we have grown, the people I met those 30 years ago have made some impact on my life and have helped make me who I am today. Prior to graduation, I took a night course at Sarasota Vocational School, I earned a certificate in Travel and Tourism and landed a job that summer of 1979 with Florida Airlines as a ticket/reservation agent. In 1983 I married my "high school sweetheart" Kevin. We celebrate 25 years this summer. Kevin works at Florida Power & Light. He is a Line Specialist and plans to retire in the next 10years.Our son Nathan is 22, he is a Firefighter/EMT. Our daughter Rachael is 19, she starts her second year of college this fall. Her major is Political Science, with a minor in Spanish.
I left Florida Airlines and worked the next 18 years as a travel consultant with Sarasota Travel, Executive Travel and Far Horizons Travel. I have visited England, Mexico, Central America, Canada, the Caribbean and Hawaiian Islands, the Bahamas and much of the USA. The travel bug is hard to shake and Kevin and I hope to venture to new places in the future.
At present, I have a small cleaning service that keeps me plenty busy. I find joy and happiness with my husband and kids, and I am thankful my mom, brothers and sister are near. I hold my family close to my heart. Any regrets...nope not one! I look forward to seeing all of you!
LOHRI STEWARD WILLIAMS
After graduation I graduated from Manatee Junior College & the University of Central Florida with a degree in accounting. I worked at Desear's Appliances for several years after college & then married my husband Tim Williams (class of 81). Since marrying my husband Tim we have lived in Texas, Kentucky & South Carolina due to his time in the military. I have been a stayathome mom for 20 years. I have been a homeschool mom to my 5 children for 15 years. My children range in age from 5-20 years old. The oldest Benjamin is a USF junior & the youngest Emma will start kindergarten this year. I enjoy hosting a ladies Bible study a couple times of year in my home. We currently have lived in Plant City, FL for almost 9 years where my husband is a pediatrician. We enjoy our large family, sweet friends & living in our small town, & most of all getting to know Jesus better & better each day.
