Lynn Benson is a compassionate, fun loving individual who loves spending time with family and friends, traveling, and baking cakes. One of her most memorable travel experiences occurred while volunteering in Uganda. A few days into the trip, she had a most unwanted visitor in her room during the middle of the night. A snake! Needless to say, Lynn gives every room she stays in while traveling, a complete once over.
Lynn has always enjoyed writing and finds it relaxing. She did not initially set out to write and publish a book; however, one thing she has learned is that there are numerous ways in which to tell a story. Her first book, By Faith not by Sight: My Victorious Battle Over Breast Cancer, was written to share with others her insurmountable strength and determination when facing adversity. She aspires to encourage individuals affected by cancer. No limits are placed on who she targets as readers.
Lynn’s parents have been her biggest inspiration. They played a pivotal role in raising her to become the strong, dependable, determined woman she is today. It is with their heartfelt wisdom, values, unconditional love, and discipline instilled at a young age, that she has been motivated to love and serve others.
Some of the many scriptures which have been beneficial to Lynn include Joshua 1:9, Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go; Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me; and Psalms 46:10, Be still and know that I am God… (NKJV).
