Lynn DeShazo is the author
of some of the Church's most loved worship songs, many of which have been featured on
the live praise and worship recordings produced
by Integrity Music.
Lynn is best known for such songs as "More
Precious Than Silver," "Lead Me to the Rock,"
"Turn My Heart," "Be Magnified," "Be Unto Your
Name," "Stand Up and Give Him the Praise," "In
Your Presence, O God," and "Ancient Words."
Her songs have been performed by a diverse and
distinguished group of worship leaders and
vocalists that have graced the popular
Integrity's Hosanna! Music series from its
inception. They include Leanne Albrecht, Rita
Baloche, LaMar Boschman, Scott Wesley Brown,
Travis Cottrell, Brian Doerksen, the Women of
Faith worship team, Bob Fitts, Kent Henry,
Graham Kendrick, Robin Mark, Don Moen, Marty
Nystrom, Ross Parsley, Randy Rothwell, Paul
Wilbur, and Kelly Willard. Her songs have also
found their way onto countless other worship
recordings, including independent productions as
well as the works of artists such as Fred
Hammond, Kim Hill, Israel Houghton, Michael Neale, Michael W.
Smith and John Tesh..
Lynn has been involved in ministry on the local church level for over thirty years as a worship leader, a songwriter, and a teacher. Her songs have been sung in worship throughout the Body of Christ since the early 1980's, and she was an exclusive songwriter for Integrity Media for twenty-two years. Lynn has also produced ten of her own music recordings to date and a book, More Precious Than Silver: The God Stories Behind the Songs of Lynn DeShazo.
Lynn still travels occasionally as a worship leader, and still writes a few songs, but finds herself more often in a teaching role these days.
Lynn is a native of Alabama, and still resides in Birmingham. She is also a graduate of Auburn University and the Christian Life School of Theology.

Spring/Summer 2017 Update
“First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
I Timothy 2:1-4 NASB
Whoa...I am really behind on posting updates! I was actually alive and well in 2016, but didn’t post a single thing about my “goings on.” I didn’t even get a blog entry posted in 2016. I guess I was too riveted on the unfolding presidential election year drama here in the USA. What a year 2016 was, eh? Against the odds, Donald J. Trump rose above the political fray to become our nation’s forty-fifth president. A lot of folks are happy about that, and perhaps just as many are dismayed, but our mandate as Christians remains the same. We are to pray for those in governmental authority.
As for me, I am feeling a profound need for a re-tooling for the days ahead. Even the soft case for my guitar is wearing out and literally losing its “zip.” So one new development for 2017 will be a redesigned website and some fresh content. Check my site for the new look in the weeks ahead.
