I’m Lori-Lyn.

I write stories

and pray with paint.

I write about love and my spiritual creative life. I write about liturgy and my journey with church. I write about Mary, the mother of God, and Mary Magdalene, and women’s issues and women’s voices. I write about art-making and intuitive listening and the everyday sacred. I write about my practice and faith but also my struggles and doubt. Everything I write is something I need to hear. My words, just like my paintings, are conversations with God, and you are warmly invited to join in the conversation.

“My session with Lori-Lyn was deeply reassuring and inspiring – a warm homecoming for my spirit! At the same time, our conversation was also quite practical and helpful, and I came away with some concrete practices and ideas for moving forwards. I loved it that while Lori-Lyn very skillfully weaved her own spot-on intuition and intelligence into the conversation, she also invited me to trust my intuition and spiritual power. She is wonderfully kind, easy to talk to, respectful, and truly gifted. I treasure our conversation and look forwards to the next one. I can’t recommend her work highly enough!”
