“After my dad died, my world shattered. I longed for attention, something to fill the huge void.”
Meet Lynsi Snyder, President and Owner of In n Out Burger. Lynsi was left without direction or purpose at the young age of 18 when her dad died unexpectedly. She tried everything to assuage her grief, but nothing helped, including a string of failed relationships with men. Even though she was now closer than ever to being in charge of the massive burger chain, she couldn't shake the massive grief that had overtaken her.
My Dad Died and I'm Scared
Scared to death of being alone and desperate for relief, she rushed into a string of bad marriages. Cheating as well as being cheated on, she was abused, ignored and disrespected, used and manipulated time and time again.
As she struggled through her last marriage, she was finally introduced to the true love of Christ, and immediately was made new, whole, and finally conquered her fear of being alone. As her faith strengthened and her life because authentically fulfilled, she met the man of her dreams who eventually became her best friend, her husband, and the father of her children.
Her story runs from desperation and grief to joy and fulfillment, and although she still misses her dad, her life is now a narrative of God's redemptive power for anyone who follows Him. This is that story.
