Hello! I’m Lynn.
I’m just a regular girl who grew up in North Dakota.
I discovered a love for writing in sixth grade, thanks to Mrs. Triska at Pioneer Elementary. I was a bit of a science nerd. So I went to college, got a degree in biology and met my husband, David. I remember sitting across from him at Mazzio’s Pizza thinking this was the man I’d spend the rest of my life with.
We got married, moved to Texas and I worked in molecular genetics for six years, which was a blast. When I became a mom, I had the amazing privilege of staying home for a while with our two busy boys. They are all grown up now. I love every crazy minute of being a boy mom!
I rediscovered my love for writing during the most difficult season of my life. There was a betrayal in my marriage—the virtual infidelity of pornography addiction. I pretended and coped for many years, but Jesus met me in the pain and gave me the courage to face it. Writing helped me reconcile my reality. I learned in group therapy that the way I expressed my recovery journey resonated with other women. I released my book, Keep Walking, 40 Days to Hope and Freedom after Betrayal in 2016.
Thanks to Jesus and therapy, my husband and I made it to the other side of addiction and trauma together. We both knew early on that we would share our story. We want people to know there is hope. Light shines in the darkness. We joined a public speaking club with our knees knocking, but I discovered another love. I was created to speak life.
In an unexpected twist, my husband and I were invited to co-pastor Restoration Covenant Church in Round Rock, TX. Neither of us saw that coming. Whether I am sharing our restoration story, teaching truth from the Bible or providing a practical workshop, one of my favorite things to do is write, plan, practice and deliver words of hope.
I’m so glad you stopped by,
