Skunk Tales is a book of true short stories written by a mother about her small family. These original tales teach valuable character lessons from her life experiences. In 2002 Lynn and her son Alex moved from Florida to Texas and lived at a retreat center in the hill country. Their new life in the country along with their passion for the open air resulted with them encountering animals of various shapes, sizes, and scents. These new, unfamiliar experiences proved to be novel opportunities of learning and adventure. What a surprise it was when they arrived at their new home and discovered a strange foul odor about their house! Later they would learn that they had some uninvited quests. The close proximity of wildlife challenged Lynn to look at her life in a more meaningful way. This period of reflection resulted in her desire to share with others chapters of her life. In Skunk Tales Lynn writes about how God miraculously guided and cared for her and her son and compares these lessons to their observations of the various animals they observed. Flash is the story about the day they were raking leaves near the pond at the camp and a fox ran into the brush and dropped its food. Later that day Alex rushed through his school work and Lynn reminded him of the fox they had seen earlier in the day and encouraged him to pace himself with his studies. This opportunity prompted them to study the habitat and behaviors of the fox and all the important lessons they could learn from its example. Digger is the story about curiosity and staying on task. During their evening camp duties Lynn and her son decided to stop working to observe a skunk they had spotted. The skunk dug himself into a hole. Lynn and Alex ended up with their own consequences from this adventure. They learned a valuable lesson from Digger the skunk about following their noses. You will enjoy over sixty beautiful illustrations in Skunk Tales which accurately portray the true events of the stories. At the end of each chapter is an exciting and delightful section called Pooky s Time Out. This is a very useful tool for parents to teach character lessons, motivate learning, and encourage families to spend intimate time together. Pooky s Time Out is rich with fun activities to do and idioms to learn as well as Scriptures and prayers to read and songs to sing. As a result of reading Skunk Tales you will gain a fresh perspective and appreciation for the many valuable and meaningful opportunities you already possess to nurture and inspire your loved ones. Family time will become filled with meaning and purpose as you make cherished memories of time spent together. Lynn shares the life-giving message of gratitude and trust and testifies of God s faithfulness even in the stinkiest situations. See more at skunktalesonline.com

What an awesome privilege to read your stories and to see the way you wove your faith in the Lord into your everyday life and the practical way you impacted your son with the Christian way of life. You glorified the Lord s love, faithfulness and power. Pooky's Time Out brings each story alive to the reader and gives parents practical ways to make His truths come alive in their lives and the lives of their children. The discussion questions are especially thought provoking and a great launching pad for a family to share ideas. The Scripture songs application idioms everything at their fingertips. I love the easy personal flow of your writing style. Using the idioms of our everyday language preserves the colloquialisms of our day. This book will be a great tool in the Hands of our God. I believe the Lord is smiling-very pleased and saying, well done my faithful servant. --Tina, Retired Elementary School Teacher
Skunks Tales is an encouraging devotional that is a pleasant reminder of God s faithfulness. The stories and situations affirm the importance of learning from every situation. I really connected with the stories. My favorite story was My Cup Overflows; it is a good illustration of how our Father loves us and provides for us in simple yet meaningful ways. I especially enjoyed the fun facts and trivia about animals, as well as the fun applications to each lesson. --Arielle Texas A&M Graduate
