Hi there, I’m Kristy Lynn.
Simply Good Reading (SGR) is still a work in progress, so if you want to drop a suggestion or book title my way, I’m listening! You can always reach me at: [email protected].
Why Do I Write About Reading?
#1. I love books. I try to learn something new every day so I can be a better person. Reading well is an important avenue to living well, + I want to inspire as many people as I can to do both those things.
#2. Reading doesn’t come easily for everyone. I experienced this personally as a mother of two incredibly creative, dyslexic kids. In fact, only one of my five kids was an intuitive reader. The others took either a little patience, or tons (and years) of patience + hard work in order to learn to read. This blog is a space that I hope will offer encouragement, ideas, tips + inspiration for anyone struggling to teach a child to read, or wanting to read more, or better, themselves.
How Often Do I Read?
What Do I Do Besides Read?
Well, I’m a pastor’s wife.
I also homeschool my five kids, so being a mom is really the main thing I do besides reading (+ cleaning + laundry).
I write a lot too.
In fact, I love writing as much as I love reading.
I manage three blogs, including this one, + work as a content creator at FWMoms.com.
Oh, and I enjoy working out + running. (Sometimes I also sleep.)
I’m a personality junkie. (Type 1 on the Enneagram, INTJ according to Myer’s Brigg’s.)
I can type about 60 wpm.
I have two daughters + three sons.
My oldest child graduated from Classical Conversations in May 2021.
I’ve been married to Jeremy for nearly 20 years.
Rainy days are my favorite.
What Do I NOT Like to Do?
I pretty much avoid talking on the phone unless I have to.
Sewing + anything tedious drives me crazy.
Sadly, I stink at gardening, although I adore plants and flowers.
Balancing a check book is probably my least favorite thing to do in the world. (I’m so grateful for online banking!)
