A lyrical poet and writer, Deborah Lynn expresses and interprets life through words. Her ability to clear a path,Headshot#2 restore a vision, encourage hope and give voice to spiritual truths found in the minutiae of the everyday is a gift to those struggling on their own paths. In this book she transmutes the darkness of pain and suffering into a tangible experience of hope for her readers.

Drawing upon a deep well of lifetime experience salted with the gift of being able to make a spiritual connection to joy through the pathways of pain, Deborah is not afraid to peel back the cover of her heart, and in doing so, enables others to find the courage to connect to their own.

Deborah Lynn lives in Wayland, Massachusetts with her husband and the lively memories of raising their five children scattered throughout her home in pictorial array. A late-blooming gardener with a love of, and respect for, nature, she laughingly says that she could only raise one thing at at time, children or plants. After decades of child rearing, she reconnected with the artist within and has poured out the words, thoughts, knowings and feelings of her heart, distilling a life of caring and seeking into the beauty of a phrase that will catch at your heart.

Deborah shares her love of life, nature, spirit and insight through her writing and photography. Her personal journey has taken her into energy and healing work as a Reiki Practitioner, where she has become an advocate of Reiki for Alzheimer's and Caregivers.  She continues to seek and thrive and grow, sharing her journey step by step as she goes.

Deborah Lynn (Strafuss) is the owner of Crystal Reiki, a Certified Reiki Master and Teacher by Libby Barnett, RMT, MSW, and Level III Shinpiden Reiki Practitioner and Teacher by Frans Stiene, co-founder of the International House of Reiki.  She volunteers for local memory cafes, is a certified dementia practitioner (NCCDP), an Alzheimer's advocate and a member of the Alzheimer's Impact Movement.
