His Revolutionary Love – Interview with author Lynn Cowell AND Book Give Away!!!

I have found that in the Single Season there is nothing better than falling so deeply in love with Jesus! It really is the perfect romance. I have written about it previously here in my post Love In the Single Season. But even now, do you realize just now in love Jesus is with you? His love for you is so amazing, so deep and so intimate! And Lynn Cowell talks about this in her book which she just recently published entitled His Revolutionary Love: Jesus’ Radical Pursuit of You.

I had the privilege of interviewing Lynn Cowell about her book which I will share with you here. 

Brittany Ketter: Tell us a bit about yourself:

Lynn Cowell: I am an author and speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries; I have been a part of the team for three years. I live in North Carolina with my husband, Greg, of 24 years. We have three teens. We love anything we can do outside: white water rafting, softball, hiking as well as music of all kinds. I’m a big fan of sushi, well-worn sweatshirts and anything that combines peanut butter and chocolate.

 

Brittany: You said that you work with Proverbs 31 Ministries. How did you get into that? And what is the best part about that for you?

Lynn: Several years ago I attended Proverbs 31’s speakers and writers conference “She Speaks”. This was my first experience with the ministry. A couple of years later, I began to volunteer for the ministry doing data entry (which I still do!). At that time they didn’t have any one on their team who spoke to teens so I filled that niche.

The best part are the amazing women that are on the team. To have nearly 50 women on a team who get along great with no jealously or issues is really a work of God.

 

Brittany: Wow. That is awesome! What got you into writing?

Lynn: I started mentoring teen girls about 10 years ago. When the girls and I headed to the Christian book store to find a book that studied what Jesus’ crazy love for us, we couldn’t find one. I decided to write for the girls each week and would then email them. When I was done, I knew this was teaching that many girls needed thus the book “His Revolutionary Love”.

Brittany: Tell us about your book.

Lynn: In “His Revolutionary Love,” I help teen girls and their moms:

  • ·         Create confidence leading to higher self-esteem by discovering Christ’s life-altering love.
  • ·         Replace loneliness, rejection, and pain with acceptance, affirmation, and approval.
  • ·         Make wise choices that lead to a fruitful future, rather than becoming a victim to emotionally-based decisions.
  • ·         Shift faith in Jesus from just a parental influence to a personal, growing relationship.
  • ·         Learn how to discern the voice and will of God.
  • ·         Develop and stick to boundaries that protect the heart, mind, and body.
  • ·         Communicate with guys and other girlfriends in a manner that’s healthy and positive.

Brittany:  What was your greatest inspiration while writing His Revolutionary Love?

Lynn: Someone I love dearly was going through her third divorce. I knew she was looking to guys to fill the love gap in her heart. It became my passion to help other girls find Jesus as the Only One who can give unconditional love to fill her heart.

Brittany: What captives you the most about the love of Jesus?

Lynn: His love is absolutely perfect. Even knowing our deepest secrets, our darkest deeds and most disappointing moments it change the way He loves us. He doesn’t think we are the greatest one night and dump us tomorrow. He is exactly what we crave. 


Brittany: Tell us about your publishing process:

Lynn: It was so painful! If I had known from the beginning that I would experience 19 rejections over five years, I probably would not have had the heart to make the journey. Jesus knew that I needed this experience to learn humility, dependence on Him as well as time to hone my skills as a writer. It sure taught me perseverance!

Brittany: If you wanted to get one point across to your audience, what would it be?

Lynn: Love from a guy, whether it is a boyfriend or a dad, can never fill the love gap in your heart. 


Brittany: Seeing that your book is flying off the shelves, are there any future writing plans?

Lynn: Yes…I definitely want to write a companion book for girls to “His Revolutionary Love” as well as a version for adult women.

Brittany: That is awesome! I look forward to it! Thank you for being with us today, Lynn. It was a pleasure to hear from you about His Revolutionary Love. Thank you so much for sharing!

Check out Lynn’s website here for some awesome posts! This woman truly has a heart that is so passionate about God and for girls and women to understand in share in the radical love that He has for us.

Blessings!
