In honor of Beth’s upcoming birthday, Beth invites her long-time mentor and friend, Lynn Ortel. Lynn has a beautiful way of always encouraging, always building other up and ALWAYS bringing every conversation back to the glorious love of our Savior and friend Jesus Christ. Every moment of this conversation was so special that we are giving you the complete uncut version.
Lynn is and has been a mentor to Beth for over 27 years. Their friendship has been an incredible blessing bringing encouragement and always uplifting Jesus. Lynn has a passion to experience the real and relevant God. Her life’s mission statement is “to live a life of love” (see Ephesians 5:1-2), and she has traveled globally to share about this God who makes all the difference in our lives. Lynn is currently serving as the women’s ministries director for the Arizona Conference, and she has previously served the Adventist Church in various conferences in communications, family ministries, women’s ministries, children’s ministries, and ministerial spouse’s association.
Lynn is married to Mike, and they have three outstanding children and six wonderful grandchildren. She was a registered nurse when her children came along, and then she chose to be a stay-at-home mom until they outgrew homeschooling and went to traditional school. For about eight years, she cared for three developmentally disabled women in her home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In later years she earned a bachelor of science in psychology and a master of arts in counseling, and became a licensed professional clinical counselor.
