Lynn Cowell

Lynn Cowell is a national conference speaker and author of several books including Magnetic: Becoming the Girl He Wants. Her passion is empowering our generation to become wise women who raise wiser daughters.

For the past 15 years, Lynn has taught women and teens to discover the radical love of Jesus Christ and build confidence leading to wiser choices. Her ministry has helped thousands of teen girls and their moms:

  • Develop a God-confidence not based on things she can lose
  • Replace loneliness, rejection, and pain with acceptance, affirmation, and approval
  • Make wise decisions leading them to reach their fullest potential
  • Create and stick to boundaries to protect the heart, mind, and body
  • Communicate in relationships in a healthy and positive way

Lynn is the author of Magnetic: Becoming the Girl He Wants empowering young women to choose to live out nine captivating characteristics—known as the fruit of the Spirit. When a young woman shifts her focus from a guy to the Guy, Jesus, he can become the magnetic young woman God created her to be; a girl reaching her fullest potential.

In addition to being a popular speaker for women’s events, her teen conferences bring life-change to hundreds of girls each year all across the country. Girls often come up to her saying, “How did you know that’s what I was going through?” Hearing direction and guidance on critical issues they face, Lynn encourages them to fall in love with Jesus and find the cause He created them for. (See if she is coming to your city on her “Speaking” page!)

Lynn and her husband, Greg, have been married for over 27 years and are the parents of three. They enjoy spending time together, especially when it combines the mountains, well-worn sweatshirts, or anything that combines chocolate and peanut butter. Lynn and her family reside in North Carolina. You can connect with her at and on Facebook at Lynn Cowell.

Lynn looks forward to hearing your heartbeat for your event and coming alongside to minister with you.

You’re More than the Women in the Mirror

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Confidence? Beauty? A woman overwhelmed by the Father’s love? Or do you see someone different?

In a culture obsessed with perfection, our sense of self-worth can be battered and tossed day after exhausting day. We were made for more!

Magnetic empowers a girl with confidence to make wise choices when it comes to guys. A confidence gained; magnetic is something she becomes.

  • Position yourself to not lose your confidence – even in the worst circumstances.
  • Build your confidence on the one thing that cannot be taken from you.
Passing By Predictable

Boring. Predictable. I know – you’re not supposed to say that about your faith. But it can so easily become true. It is good to be stable and consistent, but Jesus never intended for our relationship with Him to be boring.

It’s time to break up with boredom! In this full conference or one-session message, Lynn will not only challenge you, but will help empower you to:

  • Move past the mundane into the life Jesus called rich and satisfying
  • Become ruined for the ordinary and desire His extraordinary
  • Discover what is missing and how to find fulfilling in your walk with Jesus

5 Secrets to Becoming the Parent Your Kid Wants to Hang Out With

Leaning on nearly 25 years of parenting experience, Lynn will share her secrets for having the connection and communication you and your child long for! (And it may or may not involve jumping out of a plane!)

{Events for Young Adults and Teens}

You are Brave Enough

{full conference or single session message}

Every young woman should break out of the cultural definition of beautiful and break into God’s so she can reach her fullest potential. To do this, she must be brave! This talk/conference challenges young adults and/or teens to push past relationship drama to get to God’s best for her. To bravely make the switch from looking for the guy to becoming the girl. Young women will be encouraged and empowered to become the one God created her to become; a gutsy, God girl who displays His character and honors God.

You’re More Than Enough

{a full conference or single session message}

You see it; the undercurrent of culture threatening to pull you under. As her mentor or mom, you also see something she is missing: the full potential laying just under the surface of all her trying.

It’s time for her to break out of the suffocation of trying to becoming who God created her to be. She is more than she knows! Let’s empower her to be brave enough to make the move and discover who intended her to be! Together we’ll:

  • Figure out what a personal & growing relationship with Jesus looks like (and why she should want one).
  • Learn how to block out the noise to hear the voice of God.
  • Develop and stick to boundaries so she can reach her fullest potential.
  • Create confidence leading to higher self-esteem by discovering the love she craves.

Sessions can include:

What Others are Saying about Lynn

If you are looking for a speaker who will inspire your community to become the women that God desires for them to be, Lynn Cowell is the perfect choice. In our planning meetings in the months prior, Lynn shared her heart and her years of experience. Even though she was miles away in North Carolina and we were in Illinois, she helped equip our team with helpful ideas for marketing and planning our conference. The feedback after the conference was overwhelming with what a wonderful impact she had on not only on the teens, moms, step moms and grandmothers who were deeply touched to help the young women in their life stay encouraged to choose wisely and follow God’s path for their lives. God has gifted her with the ability to reach young girls with the message that our identity must be in Christ and not in what their friends, boyfriends or media is pushing on them.

Lynn Cowell is Proverbs 31 Ministries hidden gem and best kept secret.  Lynn has a God given gift to connect with and relate to teen girls and moms when she talks about Jesus’ radical love for us, purity, friendships, guys, and all the other sacred and messy stuff in between.  Lynn is making a huge impact in churches across the nation. Of all the conferences I’ve attended including nationally offered conferences, Lynn’s messages by far packed the biggest punch. Her words are God’s truth woven with her experiences from the wellspring of her love for Jesus and are conveyed in such a way the audience is left hungry for more and inspired to implement what they’ve learned.

Lynn is my sister in Christ, and I have the privilege of calling her friend. She has a contagious and passionate love for next generation girls.

Lynn speaks about what she lives in the same passionate and engaging manner as she does in a one on one conversation. Her messages come across in a very personal way. Lynn is able to capture and hold the attention of her audience through various mediums, but I think she is effective because she is real, passionate and transparent. That is what people respond to…She is one of the most engaging and effective speakers I have had the privilege of listening to.

Our speaker was amazing!! She spoke right from her heart, and was pertinent with our theme. She also deeply connected with much of our group. She is sensitive and caring and everything was wonderful. Thank you for your direction in helping us find her, and Proverbs 31 Ministries of course will be in our future again. I can’t say enough positives about you guys!!!
— Calandra Schanzenbach, Placerville, CA

Our experience with Lynn such a blessing.  As though she was sitting in a Starbuck’s over coffee, Lynn spoke to the girls in my daughter’s middle school candidly with the truth on their desire to be wanted and the one who could fill it.  Having them laughing on one hand, then seriously considering their future in the other, she challenged the crowd of girls to be radical in their schools by finding Jesus to be the filler of their “love gap” as she calls it.  It really impacted my daughter & her friends; I hope to have her back soon!
