About Alynda

Photo by Val Cannon Photography

I am Alynda and I’m absolutely thrilled you are here. I wish we could curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee and some yummy muffins to talk about our hearts. I love learning what the Lord is doing in my friends’ lives and how He’s moving and shaking things up. He’s really shaken much up in my life in the past two years. Whew!  I have such hope in Him and I hope you know He loves you with an intensity a mother can’t even rival.

A few things about me you might want to know…my husband and I live in Dallas, Texas with our two youngest daughters. Our eldest daughter and her family (I’m a Grandma, y’all!) live in a town nearby. Our littles attend a classical collaborative Christian school, so I get to homeschool them two days per week. I absolutely adore books and read as much as possible. I’m a huge grammar nerd!

I was an English teacher before our two youngest came along. Books were the things that got me through a pretty rough childhood. They can transport us to magical places if we let them.

I am intensely passionate about helping other women achieve healing from sexual abuse/assault and am a lay leader in a ministry at our church. I love speaking with women about the healing the Lord has for them in all areas of their lives. I adore making friends (sometimes to my introverted husband’s chagrin) everywhere I go.

In addition to guest posts on other blogs, I write monthly over at the marriage ministry, A Wife Like Me. I’m fortunate to be the Editor of the website Faith Beyond Fear where believers share their experiences of reaching beyond their fear into their faith in Christ. Along with other women with a heart for ministry, I encourage a group of women Seeking God in the Hard Places on Facebook. Come join us!  I’m a member of ACFW and Word Weavers, International.

I hope you and I will become dear friends! I am praying the Lord’s goodness over your life, my new friend!
