About the Author – Timothy K. Lynn

Author Story

Timothy K. Lynn (1955-Present) was born in Chicago, IL and grew up with strong Midwestern ideals and values. As a young man, he was always encouraged by his parents to be a leader of men and to put his creative energies out into the universe. An an entrepreneur from the onset, he continues to not only express his creative spirit, but encourages all those that come in contact with him to “put up their antennas” and let the power of the universe come to them so that they might achieve their dreams and goals in life. Faith, self, family and his life’s work are the foundation for this new author who looks forward to continuing to express himself through print. He and his wife, Jane are blessed with a blended family of eight children and eight grandchildren.


Written by accomplished businessman Timothy K. Lynn, Next Step presents a faith-centered system for keeping one’s life on track and moving into an even closer relationship with God.

At an early age, author Timothy K. Lynn found himself facing adult challenges: at 16, Lynn had a wife and child, had dropped out of school, was on welfare and food stamps, and was working seven days a week just to make ends meet. At 16, Lynn had a singular focus: providing for his new family. Realizing that faith was central to having–and executing–a meaningful life plan, Lynn, through God’s grace, began to develop a system for keeping his life on track and maintaining focus. Inspired by Andy Stanley’s Starting Point, Lynn created a system centered on the four crucial components of faith, self, family and life’s work. That system evolved into Next Step.

An extraordinarily powerful book with a simple premise, Next Step provides a road map for navigating one’s way through life. Resplendent with Scripture, Biblical wisdom, and advice, Next Step shows readers how to make the next step a step in the right direction.

Presented in workbook format, Next Step has a dual purpose: Next Step functions as both a self-directed study guide as well as a guide for use with small groups. Filled with exercises designed to lead individuals and small groups towards developing a sense of direction, and receiving God’s grace, Next Step provides an enlightening look at the importance of a life centered on God.

In Next Step, Lynn addresses such crucial issues as time management, influences, faith, taking care of oneself physically, mentally, and spiritually, beliefs, family, finding purposeful life’s work, and giving back. Next Step also provides practical instruction by illuminating the importance of “big picture” thinking, reaping vs. sowing, setting–and reaching–goals, and staying out of debt. Next Step also introduces the concept of “lifeline goal setting”–an innovative strategy for setting and reaching goals. Moreover, Next Step sheds light on the most important dialogue in any person’s life: an open, ongoing and meaningful conversation with God.

A faithful companion for a life well-lived, Next Step is an inspiring, powerful, and transformative book. Brimming with wisdom, sage counsel, and instruction on finding balance, order, and meaning, Next Step is a thoughtful and thought-provoking guide to creating–and living–a life of meaning, purpose, and abundance.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Timothy K. Lynn is an entrepreneur, author and teacher, but above all, a man of faith. He has used the Next Step system for over 30 years. The Founder and Chairman of a successful company, Lynn lives in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago with his wife, Jane. He and Jane are blessed with a blended family of eight children and eight grandchildren.

“The Next Step by Tim Lynn has been a great tool that I find myself going back to when I need to reset. It has helped to remind me to balance faith, self, family, and life’s work. Now that I am in my 40’s the lifeline goal setting plan has helped me to plan and figure out what’s next for my life. The book talks about the fact that visualization is a big part of seeing and then achieving your goals. I kept a model Saratoga airplane on my desk, noticed it everyday and visualized my goal of owning one. Last year I achieved the goal and purchased the Saratoga! Tim Lynn provides the path to improving balance in life, achieving goals and accomplishing both in harmony.”
