Laurin Boyle – Editor

I’m first and foremost a follower of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, striving to learn more and grow closer to Him. I am also a former public middle school English, Reading, Social Studies teacher now spending my days trying to figure out where God needs me to go next! I’m privileged to help edit the work of the awesome writers at The Relevant Christian Magazine (trcmagazine.org) and to help author-friends with beta-reading and editing their work. I’m honored that I get to lead a Bible study and play librarian at my little church in southwestern Colorado. I love to serve God, meditate on His Word, take photos, be crafty, jot down random thoughts, and crochet poorly.
