Lynda McAndrews

Steward

I first opened my heart to Jesus at the age of 14, but it would be another 40 years before I chose to walk daily with the Lord. I have 2 grown up sons and a 1yr old Jack Russell called J.B. and I enjoy reading & writing poetry.
I grew up in New Brighton and lived in Wallasey until 2017, when the Lord led me to Hoylake, and in 2018 He led me to St Luke’s. The highlight of 2018 was my full immersion baptism. Since then I have grown closer & closer to our Lord.  St Luke’s is a big part of my life, and I feel blessed to be part of such a loving family.
