About the BLOG
My name is Lindsay Morgan Snyder and this is my blog, I named it “Putting the Pencil Down” because I find it is easier said or typed on the top of a blog than done. I want to discuss the struggle, the grace and the expectant heart of a moment by moment surrender to the One who Created the Universe, the Author and Perfecter of our Faith, writing His story for you and I, as we put the pencil into His capable hands and walk forward with Him, step by step……. moment by moment!
This blog is about the struggle of Letting God be God…. trying to stay in the moment, be present, instead of planning our life away, stopping to BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD, instead of waiting and wishing for the next “thing”……vacation, a spouse, a spouse who loves better, a baby, a grand-baby, a different house, the weekend, the end of the work day. Whatever it is, we just want and want and want the next thing…. We forget that God created the Universe, the entire Universe and He wants a relationship with each one of us, He has a plan and purpose for our life, if we would just TRUST Him and stop trying to control everything we would see as He leads! I am talking to myself here, it is a moment by moment choice I have to make to give the pencil back to my Maker, the One who created me in my mother’s womb and knew me before time began, who planned and purposed my life already. Put the Pencil Down Lindsay….. Put.it.Down and just TRUST.

A little bit about me!
I am long winded, I tell super detailed stories, I love airplanes, I am from Ohio, lived in Atlanta, GA for 8 precious years where I met Jesus and moved to Los Angeles kind of on a wing and a prayer believing God for some reason wanted me here. I love adventure and I write because it heals my soul, and my prayer is that reading it will help heal yours!
I write a lot, see other writings here: Lindsay’s Professional Website
I have a bunch of sisters, not all biological, but all from God!
My dream is to travel around the world to many different cultures, sit with the people, tell them about Jesus and write their stories for the world to read!
I was a hot mess for 31 years of my life, stumbling (literally) in and out of bars and clubs in various cities around the country. I KNOW God meets people where they are, because I distinctly remember a specific evening in a bar in a bathroom where I thought to myself “is this really it, is this what life is about, surely, it can’t be” I was probably having my first conversation with God, I don’t think I realized it at the time, but I look back on the moment and believe God was there and was listening. It was many more years before I finally listened to what God had to say and then the journey began, my love affair with Jesus. When you live 31 years in desperate need of love and then find it, you just can’t stop talking about it. That’s me and Jesus!
I hope you know Him and if you don’t, email me, I would be excited to tell you about Him!
