With Mother’s Day approaching, we are beginning a new series on The First Things Podcast called, “Matters Of The Heart”. In this series we will hear amazing stories from women who have led with their heart and given their best to care for the people God placed in their lives. 

In this episode we will hear from my friend, Lynelle Mackechnie, or as I call her, Mrs. Mack. Mrs. Mack has spent her life valuing the lives of those among us who are often overlooked and often not treated with dignity and honor. We say this is the time of year that we “honor” our mothers, my guest today has demonstrated with her life that the commitment to honor those we love goes much deeper than gifts and cards.



“Honor widows who are truly widows. 

But if a widow has children or grandchildren, let

 them first learn to show godliness to their own household and to

make some return to their parents,

for this is pleasing in the sight of God.” 1 Timothy 5:3
