Congrats to the winner of the Easter weekend giveaway. She is Amber Jensen ! Amber, send your address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. :-)
If your life includes a teen girl you love and care about, well have I got a treat for you!
I’ve asked my good friend and Proverbs 31 speaker Lynn Cowell to join us and chat about her brand new book His Revolutionary Love. Lynn has a passion for Jesus and for helping moms and teens connect with each other and with Him.
She is one of the most generous women I know and often serves out of the limelight. But when she is on stage, be prepared to be encouraged and challenged by this gifted and engaging speaker, who is now an author too! Now, bloggy sisters, meet Lynn:
As a speaker and writer with Proverbs 31 Ministries, Lynn Cowell lives in North Carolina with her husband of 23 years and her three teenage children. The Cowells enjoy being outside whether it is hiking, fast pitch softball or white water rafting.
Empowering women with confidence through Jesus’ radical love is Lynn’s heartbeat. She is very excited about the release of her first book “His Revolutionary Love: Jesus’ Radical Pursuit of You”; a study for young women.
Sushi, well worn sweatshirts and anything that combines chocolate and peanut butter are her top three favorites.
Now, watch a quick clip of Lynn telling of her passion for working with teen girls by clicking here. Be sure to come back for the rest of the interview and her great giveaway!
What prompted you to write His Revolutionary Love?
When I was 19, I discovered a side of Jesus I had never seen before. I had known Him as my savior, shepherd and friend, but I was still looking for more. It as then that I found Him to be the perfect, unconditional love I was always looking for. I found He wanted to be more than the God I served; He wanted to be the God I loved.
Years later someone I dearly loved was going through her third divorce, I asked Jesus why that wasn’t me. He revealed to me that falling in love with Him had filled my heart and completed me. I had discovered young that if a guy doesn’t like me it doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with me. I already had God’s approval and it had nothing to do with me. Jesus is crazy about me and that is enough. Spreading this truth is my passion.
What is your greatest desire for the girls who pick up your book?
My prayer is that each young women who reads “His Revolutionary Love” will discover the Love that has always wanted them and that this Love will fill their hearts for a lifetime. I hope they will find confidence, truth and power that will ruin them for a mundane life. I want them to be ignited with passion for Jesus that will revolutionize their lives with real change.
