Some Very Good Words to Describe Miss Lynn:
IDEALISTIC: On the day 9-year old Lynn Hickernell was selected as captain of a gym class kickball team, she knew just what she would do: the first members chosen for her team would be the classmates who, like her, were usually picked last. As the teams assembled, she ignored the quizzical facial expressions and continued to select smaller, less-coordinated 4th graders, instead of the stronger, faster students who quickly made up the opposing team. She knew that her team might not be obvious victors, but if they worked together, they could show the other team what they could do–which turned out to be lose. Badly. By a score of approximately 25 to 0. And while it wasn’t much fun to lose that spring morning, many years later it made a good story.
UNPRETENTIOUS: Miss Lynn knows we are all still learning (she even wrote a song about it), so she’s not worried about telling stories to try and make herself look cool. The fact that she thinks being cool is overrated is one of the driving forces behind the music she makes and The Good Words Podcast.
ZEALOUS: She loves so many things! Music! Doughnuts! The color yellow! And WORDS! She loves words so much that she created a whole podcast about them. You can find The Good Words Podcast on iTunes, on the Good Words Podcast Website, or many other podcast providers.
TRANSIENT: Even though she’s pretty down to earth, Miss Lynn also spends a lot of time traveling, making concerts with kids and adults all over and working on The Good Words Podcast. You can find some of the places she’ll be by looking at the calendar.
AMBIVALENT: Miss Lynn has very mixed feelings about social media in general and her involvement in particular, but if you are so inclined, you can find her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
UBIQUITOUS: But even though she can only be in one physical location at a time, you can find her all over the Internet! In addition to all the places mentioned above, find her music on iTunes, and CD Baby!
