Lyn Asks the August Question — 18 Comments

  1. You’re unusual. Just make yourself look at the person and don’t think of anything but them! Give it a try. So many people don’t listen!

  2. I would like to learn how to truly listen! I want to go better at letting people know they are valued by how I listen.

  3. I would love to learn the true names of flowers and how to arrange them. I think giving and receiving flowers has become as lost as writing a letter longhand and sending it in the mail. Flowers warm the heart and put smiles on faces. The colors and shapes speak to the senses and lift the spirit.

  4. This is a two-fold answer… If I could learn anything, what I would love to do is be a travel photographer. Go places. Take pictures that make others want to go there, too.

    BUT… I also want very much to re-learn watercolor painting and pencil sketching. Over two decades ago, I lost all confidence in my talents. I haven’t drawn or painted since. I want to start again, but am not sure what it would take.

  5. I would like to learn how to surf. Love the ocean and feel closer to God there as I’m so small in comparison. Have viewed the ocean but would love to experience it. Of course, would need to learn to swim first lol.

  6. I LOVE music and would love to learn to play the piano, just for myself, and playing to worship the Lord!!!!

  7. I would love to learn to work rehabilitating manatees that have been injured. Such beautiful creatures!

  8. I would like to learn how to sail a sailboat. I have always found them beautiful to watch just gliding across the water. Also I have always wanted to learn Spanish but haven’t taken the time and effort to learn. If you don’t keep using it, you tend to forget too much of it to understand Spanish speaking people you might encounter.

  9. I would love to fluently speak French. Although I took classes in high school and college, there’s a lot I’ve forgotten. If there’s ever a chance to travel to France or a French-speaking destination, I want to be able to fully understand the language. An added bonus is that it’s a beautiful language.

  10. I would like to skydive. I’m not an adventurous person, but the idea if jumping out of a plane and seeing earth from above appeals to me. Of course my husband would agree only if he could get a motorcycle, so this is not going to happen.

  11. I would love to learn American Sign Language. It is so beautiful put to music and song. I’ve seen it done in several church services. Beautiful and what a wonderful worship experience. If I didn’t have a “tin ear” I’d love to be able to play the guitar. I took lessons many many years ago but couldn’t tune it properly. My dad played “by ear” and could play anything he heard one time. Alas I didn’t inherit his talent.

  12. I would like to learn more about genealogy. I have worked on both sides of my family and have more that 70,000 names in my data base. I have been doing it for over 60 years and love it. I have been to seminars and workshops but I still would like to learn more. It’s so interesting when I read a book and run across one of my much older ancestors name. I have enjoyed your books, Lyn, for many years. I’m an avid reader and end every day with at least a couple of hours of reading.

  13. I would love to learn how to type Braille. I started twice, but, as they say, “life got in the way“ and I never finished. Yes, I used a computer, but where the letters are and what keys are used to make one letter in Braille is totally different. I’ve wanted to do this ever since I saw a friend’s mother typing Braille about 50 years ago. At that time, of course, she was not using a computer, but had a different kind of typewriter. I would love to volunteer to type books into Braille so the blind would be able to read them.

  14. I would love to get some really good cameras and learn how to take great pictures. I love to travel and take a ton of pictures on my phone, but it’s just not enough

  15. I would learn to play the cello. My best friend growing up played and I fell in love with the sound. Music brings peace to my soul. Making beautiful music brings me closer to God and I would love to learn another way to do this.

  16. I want to narrarate audiobooks! It has been something I have wanted to do for a while now but can’t get the courage to spend the money on everything yet. If there was no cost I would do it in a heartbeat. I absolutely love reading and always give different voices to the characters in my head so I think this would be perfect for me.
