Lynne is a published author, speaker, and coach. She co-led a Saturday workshop with the beautiful Carol based on Laurie Beth Jones’ book “The Path: Creating Your Mission Statement For Work And For Life.” I and a precious girlfriend/bridesmaid joined 14 other wonderful women with the goal of discovering a true filter, a personal mission statement for our individual lives.

My mission statement for the last 18 years was “to know God and make Him known.”

Today, I can write a more intentional mission statement. Now this is a working statement, but a great filter I will visit daily for a while:

My mission is to “praise Jesus by connecting and igniting servants of the local church to persevere with integrity, competence, and joy through personal spiritual growth.”
