Oh, he was slick!
He found a perfectly legitimate reason to get my number. He called to discuss the Perspectives class that we were taking. He hung around me and my friends in class.
Then he did it in the smoothest way possible – he asked me out to dinner and invited my two friends along. He was smart. I was so much more at east. And even though only T could make it (since W was sick), I was so much less nervous about it. I was going on a date! Read the rest of this entry »
I feel led to begin telling a certain part of my story that started in this new season. One I waited for for a very long time.
And I will admit that this is a lot harder to share than I thought it would be. I started to write about it, but had to stop. Not because this is a difficult time in my story, but because of the depths of my heart that I have poured out to the Lord over it. Read the rest of this entry »
I took that step. I was obedient. I resigned from my job and moved into a different rental. Everything familiar had changed. So… now what, Jesus?
But He didn’t give me the next step. All He said was, “Rest.”
Well, not what I was expecting, but if that’s what He wants I’ll do it. Read the rest of this entry »
Once upon a time…. That’s how all of the good stories start. The ones where the main character is about to have a significant part of their story told. One where there are trials and challenges for them to overcome, and they learn more about themselves and the strength that resides in them.
So I guess that I could start this new season of writing that way – “Once upon a time…” – since that’s when the new chapter of my journey began. Two years isn’t that long, but in some ways it can be an eternity. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here, huh? I guess that you could say that life has been busy – but I know that’s not the main reason. really, it has been because I’ve been in an intense season of growth, change, and learning. And sometimes you can’t put into words the things that you need to express while in the midst of that time. Though I pray that I will always have a heart that is willing to grow, change, and learn. But I feel like now I am coming out of that concentrated season and that God has released me to begin writing again. Read the rest of this entry »
(This is a message I sent out the ladies in our small group – our topic this month is on prayer and is based off of what was shared with us in our last meeting and the handout that was given to us. View that here: Prayer – Mary Lynn 2.6.14)
I hope that you are all having a good week and staying safe in this snow! I feel a bit like I have neglected my duties last semester, but God has given me a season of rest. So I guess that was rest from writing, as well. But I feel like I might be released to write again, so hopefully I can be more consistent this semester. With that being said… let’s talk about our topic of the month: Read the rest of this entry »
The church I grew up in has a tradition of honoring high school graduates each year. When I finally found myself in that place, the pastor we had at the time said something very sweet to me. Though there were quite a few of us graduating at that time, I was the only one there who had been involved in the youth group and other activities during my high school years. He said that as he was praying for me, the song “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus” came to his mind, and more specifically the lines from the second verse that say “Though none go with me, still I will follow.” Read the rest of this entry »

We just had a most refreshing Staff Retreat last week! Now I’m about to embark in a couple of weeks of intense ministry and travel. I have briefly outlined it all in the attached Update. Please be praying for me as I minister to various groups and individuals. I covet your prayers on my behalf!

Lately I have seen two separate concepts floating around on the internet. One, to keep your straw in your soft drink (pop), turn the tab around and insert the straw through the hole. This prevents the straw from popping out of the can every few seconds.
Two, to keep your drink bug-free, Read the rest of this entry »
