Lynn is from Northern Ireland, where she came to Christ as a young child in Sunday School. She studied English and Spanish at Queens University Belfast and then completed a P.G.C.E. before teaching primary school in the inner city. Having always had a love of language and a growing desire to study theology, she had the opportunity in 1993 to go to Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia, where she graduated with a Master of Divinity in 1996. These years were a wonderful blessing, where one of many high points was the opportunity to focus on the biblical languages. Since then she has worked as theological editor at Rutherford House in Edinburgh, and latterly as a freelance copy-editor for various Christian publishers.
Lynn is married to Mal who is Welsh, and they worship at Christ Church Edinburgh. Together they lead a weekly adult fellowship group, and Lynn leads a ladies’ Bible study.
