Rhontina “Lynn” Burroughs takes her passions in thought transcending them to words that leap in emotion from her books. I was happy to have a sit down chat with her in discussing the importance of tapping into your creative genius.” Lynn” is more low key in person, but when she speaks of her joy in writing her eyes light up in way that lets you know that she has discovered her calling. She is the author of books Discovered Passion and Discovered Promises. The books are reflections of her thoughts in things many of us deal with regarding love, passion, pain, and hearing the voice of God in walking out on our purpose. They are a mix of short essays, poetry, and heartfelt thoughts. We probably could have talked all afternoon on that beautiful fall day. However, the time I shared with Lynn will always be one the interviews that I will treaure.
