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.

Speaking Topics

{Events for Young Women}


For many young women their deepest desire is to be desired; to be loved, wanted, pursued. This deep desire can bring out their greatest fear; rejection. Questions spin in her mind: “How do I get him to like me? How do I get his attention? Why doesn’t he like me? What’s wrong with me?” all questions draining her confidence.

Boys — the overwhelming subject swirling in most teen girls’ minds. The need to have a boyfriend, whether real or perceived often becomes the driving force behind unwise decisions.

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

Magnetic helps young women:

  • Spot attractive qualities (strengths) she has and build on those.
  • Identify unattractive qualities (weaknesses) and help her move in a positive direction.
  • Change negative thinking that creates negative actions.
  • Replace rejection and fear; empowering her with confidence in who Jesus says she is.
  • Introduce girls to the power of the Holy Spirit & God’s word in their daily lives.

This event includes the talk “Are You Brave Enough?” as well as additional messages that can be chosen from those listed below.

Are You Brave Enough?

Every girl 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 challenges girls to push past guys and girl drama to get to God’s best for her. Bravely make the switch from looking for the guy to becoming the girl. Using the examples from the book of Daniel, girls will be encouraged and empowered to become the girl God created her to become; a gutsy, God girl who displays and honors God.

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!
