About Lynne M. George

This journey began when a strange twist of faith turned a once healthy, young grandmother’s world completely around.  She became permanently disabled with a debilitating back injury as the result of an automobile accident in 2003.  Her pain was 24/7, and on a scale of 1 to 10, the pain registered 15.  She had endured unrelenting back and leg pains which did not allow her to sleep, sit or stand.  She could not do small tasks such as opening doors or picking up a simple item.  Her independence was diminished.  There were times when she was on the verge of giving up, but her parents reassured her that with God’s grace, things would get better.  She learned to persevere, endure and press on for the sake of her family, and, most importantly, for her son, daughter-in-law and their two young children.  Ironically, her younger grandson, Brandon, seemed oblivious to anything.  At a stage of her suffering, she discovered something different about Brandon.  Her once precious, responsive and energetic grandson’s temperament had changed.  Soon after, he was diagnosed with autism.

Lynne's quest is to help other families with this same plight. God has given me this gift! Blessed and Be Blessed
