About Lynn

After spending forty-three years as an interior designer, Lynn Walker Gendusa was ready to retire to a hammock somewhere overlooking the blue ocean. Except God had other plans. Within a few weeks of putting down her tape measure, she picked up a pen. Her first story was published in the LaGrange Daily News in LaGrange, Georgia, her former hometown. Within a few more weeks, she became a weekly columnist for the paper, writing essays about faith, America, family, friends, depression, joy, holidays, and the other stuff of life. Her work soon spread across the country to other publications that loved her relatable down-home stories that are laced with inspiration as well as frankness.

Lynn has compiled many of her columns into these pages after readers encouraged her to do so. Her mission is to always inspire and remind us of life’s abundant blessings. She believes, “Every day reveals a new story, a new bend in the road, and a clearer understanding of our journey.”

Lynn currently resides in Roswell, Georgia with her husband David. She is the mother of three children, two stepchildren and three grandchildren.

Let Us Move On November 4, 2020 - By the time you read this, the goblins of Halloween and the ghosts from this election year will hopefully not haunt us.  However, no matter what the results of November 3rd reveal, we must move on. Some of us will undoubtedly not be happy after all the votes are counted, but we must abide by the majority's decision.  After all, it is America.  We might want to settle down and remember that we elect a President for only four years.  We have the option to redecide our decisions in a mere 48 months. Sure, a lot of damage can occur… Read More
We will not pass this way again October 28, 2020 - October 2020 is drawing to a close.  We will not pass this way again, yet I doubt any of us will forget this autumn. I suppose in 200 years, people will still tell the story of the year when our planet stood still trying to tame an invisible viral menace and much more. This fall, fires consumed much of the west, and Greek named hurricanes flooded the coasts.  Violence erupted in our streets, and hate groups flourished across our land.  An unsettling cloud covers our country, filled with uncertainty and fear. We gather with our loved ones and pray we… Read More
Sensitivity is not a Crime October 21, 2020 - When I was a little girl, my parents would often say, "Lynn, you are too sensitive!"  Yes, I would cry at the drop of a hat, and my feelings were hurt regularly.  Bullies frightened me, and I despised when whispers floated in front of me.  I hated strife, ridicule, and injustice toward anyone. I did not like, understand, or enjoy possessing such a fragile nature.   Being too sensitive was a cross I knew I must bear for the remainder of my life as if it were a cosmic defect in my character. "Grow thicker skin!" Friends would say.  However, all… Read More
The Pink Sunsets of October October 7, 2020 - When I sat in the dental hygienist chair last week, she attached what I call the "bib" around my neck as they all do.  The paper bib was adorned with a pattern of pink breast cancer ribbons scattered across its surface. I have been so consumed with worry over COVID, fires raging throughout the west coast, political upheaval, and protest, the pink ribbon suddenly startled me.  My mind flew back to an October nine years ago, when my daughter celebrated her 38th birthday.  The family trip was planned to coincide with her big day.  All of us gathered at the… Read More
WELCOME! May 20, 2019 - Welcome to my new site! Here you will find stories, both old favorites and new ones which I will change often. I will also write a post when something strikes me or I need to share important news. You can send me a note, a question, or a request. I would love to hear from you! In the meantime, keep reading, be inspiring, and change the world with kindness. Blessings, Lynn Read More
No Matter What, Be Thankful November 18, 2020 - On Friday, the 13th day of November 2020,  someone famously sarcastically exclaimed, "What could possibly go wrong?”  Even though it elicited laughter, the truth is, most of us recognized we might want to avoid stepping on cracks in the sidewalk, breaking any mirrors, or walking under ladders.  Today, we are fatigued from worry, sadness, and in many cases, loneliness. Many have lost loved ones due to the pandemic and others, have lost jobs and income.  We have suffered the slings and arrows of a bitter, contentious election that disrupted many relationships and hardened our hearts.  Now, it seems as if… Read More
