Who is Lyn - or better known as Murphys Mom?

I am Mom to two boys and Nana to two awesome grandchildren. And then there’s Murphy, my 4 year old, exceptionally smart Shih Tzu. (well, he does try to eat dots off a colorful throw.) You know the joke about older women having little dogs to be their companions? I’m afraid I’m becoming one.

I retired from the field of Christian Education about 8 years ago.

Let me back up a little. Since I was a little girl I wanted to be a teacher. Being one of six siblings along with being in a very dysfunctional family, I quit high school to help take care of my two little sisters 10 and 11 years younger than me and I’m happy that I did that. Our baby sister passed away a few years ago and our older sister passed away 15 years ago. I married and had two wonderful boys. I started volunteering in my young sons school and one day volunteered to help out in his preschool classroom. From that day on I Know what I had to do. Yes go to school. I started GED classes and excelled in them.

When I graduated from the GED program our instructor asked me if I would say a few words at the graduation ceremony. I said sure. Little did I know there would be hundreds of people there. It was held in Miami in a huge stadium. Another new discovery, I liked speaking in public Which certainly helped me in my years ahead in the Christian Education field.

Beginning college at 40, I excelled through the classes earning a Bachelor’s degree in Education and Human Services.

Now my adult boys sometimes get confused as to who the parent is. When I talked about Wealthy Affiliate they thought I really had lost my common sense.

When I became a wealthy affiliate my husband and myself were hit with emergency surgeries which led him to a year and a half of doctors, you know how that goes. Well again my adult children said mom why are you spending all this time learning something totally new about affiliate marketing? My response then was because I know I can do it. I like to write. I’m good at it. I will succeed.

My response now I is: I know I can do it. I like to write. I am good at it. I will succeed.

As This new year begins let us all stretch ourselves, reach out for help if we need it and I’m pretty sure a lot of us do need it. So you wanted to paint on canvas, take a class and do it. You’d like to be a life coach, do it. There are many good programs.

Perhaps none of these suggestions are your cup of tea and that’s OK. Still challenge your self: read a book, Do some journaling, gardening and just and being a good listener to our children, family members …WA members.

This is a glimpse of my profile. And today I’m a tad older I really haven’t changed that much. There is one thing that is going to change; I am going to work harder and smarter as a Premium Plus member of Wealthy Affiliate

Best to all of you!

Great to see that you've added some goals Lyn!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

What a great story and interesting background.
We must have been close to you last year about this time. We drove from Hot Springs Arkansas to Washington DC, stopping to visit friends in Charlotte. Then down to Wilmington, and across to Asheville, before driving back to Arkansas and then to our former home in Houston, Texas.

I look forward to following you, and I hope you will follow our adventures here in Medellin, Colombia. We are helping to establish the first Christian church for English-speakers here.

Well, if you are a prayer, let me ask you to add one more. We have lived outside the US since we retired at the end of 2015. We have learned a great deal about the benefits as well as pitfalls of living in Latin America. Along the way, we met many people who have found a home and a way to serve our Lord Jesus.

About a year ago, I started receiving "nudges" about sharing what I had learned so that many other retirees would see the opportunity to help fulfill the Great Commission. So I created a Facebook page titled "Live and Serve Christ in Latin America". I am in the process of writing and sharing stories, and I have asked many of my friends to share their stories. If you want to, and have the time, please check out and like this page and any posts you like. And pray that this information will get to the people who need it most.

And if you want to follow along with what God is doing here in Medellin, we have another Facebook page called Grace Church Medellin. (I'm also building a website on WA called gracechurchmedellin.com, but it is just in its infancy, and doesn't have much.)

We meet in homes (apartments) like the First century church did. Next week we are adding a second home group, and Lord willing we will add a 3rd around the beginning of May. None of us are preachers or pastors, but we have some experienced Christians who are all excited about how God is using us at this relatively late stage of life on earth.

Last week I got to baptize two new believers whom God brought all the way from Germany and Poland to be born again in Colombia. It was an amazing experience, and I can't wait to see what He does next! Our Facebook page has videos and photos of the baptism in our apartment pool.
