Lyn Holley Doucet (Author)

Lyn Holley Doucet is a spiritual director for various retreat houses and the Diocese of Lafayette and is an award-winning author of many books. Doucet grew up on a cotton farm in north Louisiana as one of four children. She was active in the Methodist faith until her marriage, when she converted to Catholicism and has many fond memories of growing up in a loving church community. Coming from a family that includes Methodists, Episcopalians, Baptists, and those of no organized religion, she is very comfortable with diversity. Lyn holds an undergraduate degree in speech and English from Louisiana State University and a master’s degree in education from the University of Louisiana. After working in the public schools for twenty years with special children, she has taken up composing, and leads a liturgical ensemble at St. Joseph Church in Milton, Louisiana. She has taught Artist Way and creativity courses at the University of Louisiana’s leisure learning center and hosts a radio program, "Water From Stones," on Radio Maria, the international Vatican radio station. Her programs combine storytelling, biblical readings, humor, and her own witness in an informative and entertaining format. She also directs people in prayer and Ignatian spirituality at meetings in her home. Doucet lives with her husband Dee, a contractor, in Maurice, Louisiana.
