Meet Lynda, Professional Empowerment Coach


After losing her 15-year-old daughter in a car accident in 2009, Lynda Cheldelin Fell was caught in a fog of grief. Just when she started to find her footing, her beloved 46-year-old husband suffered a disabling stroke. As she fought to restore hope, Lynda discovered that helping others was a powerful balm for her wounds—a catalyst that changed her world.

Turning her pain into passion, Lynda became an international bestselling author in 2013, and founded AlyBlue Media soon after. She launched Grief Diaries Radio in 2014, hosted the National Grief & Hope Convention in 2015, wrote the curriculum Managing Grief in the Workplace and co-founded the International Grief Institute in 2017. In 2018, Lynda created the Facebook Live show Moments of Hope, and joined forces with Zenspirations founder Joanne Fink to create Renew Your Light®. Lynda is a professional empowerment coach, international speaker, and certified critical incident stress management educator who has authored over 30 books on navigating loss and finding hope. She has been nominated for five national advocacy awards and holds four national literary awards for her work.​ Read her story here.
