and I have not had the chance to meet face-to-face, a connection was formed from the first time we read one another's blog.
Lynn has a way of writing all her own. She pulls you in with her anecdotes and
transparency. Funny and poignant, Lynn will inspire you to move to the next
level with your heavenly Father.
(1) Tell us a little about your family and growing up years.
I grew up in
the mountains of North Carolina and upstate of South Carolina.I was blessed to
grow up in a Christian home and I’m still very close to myparents and sister.
She just moved five minutes away and I’m loving havingher nearby!
(2) When did you know God was calling you to write?
I only started
writing a few years ago, but I felt sure of my calling atthe Blue Ridge
Mountains Christian Writers Conference in 2010.
(3) Who is a person that is making and has made a strong impact on
your life, and why? I’ve
been blessed with many wonderful role models. Right now, my children are making
the biggest impact on me. They keep me on my toes—and on my knees.
(4) What is your life verse?
I don’t have
just one. But related to my writing, I love Psalm 138:8 ~ TheLord will fulfill
his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, enduresforever. Do not forsake
the work of your hands.
(5) Other than Jesus, what Bible hero would you like to talk to?
mouth, big mistakes, big impact for the Kingdom :-)!
(6) What in depth Bible study would you recommend to my readers?
I love Beth
Moore, Kay Arthur, Priscilla Shirer, and just recently discovered Kelly Minter.
All of them have wonderful Bible studies that are perfect for women of all
(7) Tell us of how you came to a saving relationship with Christ?
I can’t ever
remember not knowing about God, but I do remember the night Iaccepted the
sacrifice Jesus made for me. I was four. I remember the conviction I felt and
that I refused to go to sleep until I had asked Jesus to forgive me of my sins
and come into my heart. And I remember the peace that flooded through me when I
knew He had.
(8) Please give a word of encouragement and hope to my readers who may
be struggling today.
When I’m down,
it’s the Psalms I turn to. Right now, it’s Psalm 119:132that I’m dwelling on.
Turn to me and be gracious to me as is your way withthose who love your name. I
love this - and maybe some of you need thisreminder today - that God’s usual
way of dealing with us is to be graciousand merciful.
