Do you ever wonder what the “full armor” of God really is? Do you have a hard time trying to figure out just how you are supposed to put this armor on and actually use it in this day and age?
Are You Ready? seeks to guide you through each element of God’s armor described in Ephesians 6:13-18. It provides insights as to what each part represents and how we use it.
In the “Making It Real” sections, each colored pencil drawing and story depicts a possible situation in the life of a “tweener” or teenager and the decision each has to make—to use the armor God has provided or ignore it.
One more thing. To honor the Lord for giving her the ability to draw, Lynn has hidden a cross in every colored pencil drawing. Can you find them?
Are You Ready?
About the Author and Illustrator
Lynn lives in Southern California with her husband, best friend, and soul mate, Gary, whom she married in 1968. They raised two sons, who are now both married and who have blessed them with four grandchildren. Lynn has worked with children and parents for well over 30 years, either teaching in the public school, leading in children’s ministry, or being a mentor/advisor to teenagers. Her love and concern for young people and teaching them about God has grown stronger with each passing year.
Finally, the Lord led her to use her artistic talents, lessons He had taught her, and her passion for young people to produce her first book, God’s True Love Revealed (already in its second printing). It included 23 of her colored pencil drawings of children and a timeless collection of messages for children and their parents. When Lynn had finished the last page of that book, touching on using the full armor of God, the Lord made it quite clear that she would be writing another book on how to actually use the full armor of God. This time, however, she would be writing to “tweeners” and teenagers. Again putting to use her drawing ability, experiences with teens, and the Lord’s leading, Are You Ready? was created seven years later. It is Lynn’s heartfelt desire that through these pages you will understand just how much the Lord loves you and will provide you with everything you need to survive your teen years and beyond.
