Let Me Introduce Myself

My name is Lynette, I am also called Peace Still for those who are friends with me on Facebook. I also answer to Lyn, Nana and that lady who reads many books. I am 52 years old. I have 2 wonderful sons and 6 beautiful grand children. I live in the Pacific Northwest where the grass is green and water is all around.  I am a Seattle Seahawk fan to the tenth power. Go Hawks!

I am a writer. I have been writing passionately for 15 years. I have penned many words about life, love, and the love that Christ has for us all. I don't claim to be a scholar, but I will seek and conquer that which I need to learn and embrace. I write because God has given me a desire to encourage others to live their best life, in Him and Him alone. My desire is to visit women's shelters, help the homeless and support foster care. I had a wonderful foster mother Sylvia R Jones, may she rejoice in peace. I desire to encourage others to step out of the confines of their lives and see the whole world right in their hands. I write because I have a story to tell be it about my life or the lives I have imagined.

In 2003 I was watching a show called, The Starting Over House where IyanlaVanzant was one of the mentors. Visit her website at iyanlavanzant.com. I had never seen nor heard of her before this, I feel in love. In love with her passion and gift to encourage others to see past their pain and see healing along with living in that healing. Ms. Vanzant spoke directly to my brokenness and self destruction. She spoke into the dark places I thought would never come to light. Through her words I began to see a better way. I had the pleasure of attending one of her forums here in Seattle Washington and I was in the 3rd row, up close and personal. Tears flowing I wanted to run up on that stage and hug her and tell her how much she has helped me through her shows and books. Yes I am a reader too. If you can not read you can not write. I am like you. I cry, I become fearful, I have loved and lost, I laugh, I become angry and I also doubt. I say that I can relate to a bowl of broken glass, many small pieces, shattered. In all of that I know a God who did not give us a spirit of fear but a spirit of love. With that love, I desire to share with others stories that will open their heart. I desire to see others become whole and free from anything that has them in bondage. I can only do that by pointing to Christ with writing and motivational speaking. There are many wonderful authors and speakers who have penned many works of literature. I will be amongst them. I desire will be in the libraries and in places where others are hurting and in need of peace if it is only through words. I am called to write this vision and make it plain. Habakkuk 2:2.

In closing, I pray that you desire to support me in any small way you can. I pray that you will plant a seed and watch it grow through me and the words that I write. Becoming a self published author is no easy feet but I am ready for the adventure. Writing classes and conferences, editors, printers, copyrights, and so much more oh and marketing lets not forget the marketing.

I leave you with this quote. I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die and find out there isn't, then live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is. Albert Camus

Be Blessed
