Even though she retired in 2005, Lynn still loves to write. She had another book published in 2015 titled “Separated Lives.” The book is about her helping a young man search for his birth parents – a “sometimes tearful journey with unexpected twists and turns.” At 83, she still wishes she could work as a nurse but she tries to keep busy in other ways.

Book Reviews

Are you a fan of genealogy or an amateur sleuth? This book is a short glimpse into how Lynn helped her sons friend track down his birth parents through perseverance and the internet. With the help of Google and several genealogy sites and other genealogy hobbyists Lynn was able to track down Ryan’s birth parents.

I found Separated Lives highly engaging. It’s a short book, but what could be more filled with natural emotional highs and lows than someone trying to uncover, or to take the lead in helping someone else discover who they really are and where they come from, the journey to find their roots but also answer the mysteries and questions of selfhood, which we all have?...

What a fun little book! Each chapter is a story/devotional that made me think and smile. It's the type of book I like to read before going to bed! I plan to give several as gifts.

What a blessing his book was to me. I started out just reading just the first chapter then found myself not wanting to put it down. Often in our lives we miss the important lessons. Going from childhood to adults, then raising our own children. This book made me look at the whole picture. Our lives are important enough to take the time to beieve in the powers that be. Each day will be full of triumph or tragedy but with faith we will all be stronger for it.

Lynn also liked being able to pray at work. But the thought of giving a devotion made her nervous. Knowing she might be asked by the Rev. Dr. Greg Wilcox, she wrote a few devotions just in case. “He caught me one time by the coffee machine and asked me if I’d give devotions and I couldn’t say no,” says Lynn. After she gave her first devotion,..

My oldest son got me interested in rock hunting when he was about 12 years old. He and his best friend had me drive them to various natural locations to hunt for different kinds. They collected them and also made jewelry from some rocks.
