Review by Bob Lawson I've greatly enjoyed hearing Lynn singing her songs, including two here that I knew from Robin Mark CDs I'd heard earlier, 'Be Unto Your Name' and 'How Great Are You Lord. These are songs you want to share with others. Although this CD features what I would consider very personal songs, the great musical settings inspire their use with congregations, too. Our pastor really likes The Message and so several weeks ago we included 'God Is Light' in the service and he was thrilled. Our praise band has taught it to our regular choir and we believe it will be well-received. The title song 'The Diamond Turns' is, I feel, in the spirit of such earlier pieces by Lynn like 'Once More (There Is A River).' It's very powerful. BIO Lynn DeShazo is the author of some of the Church's most loved worship songs of today, many of which have been featured on the live praise and worship recordings produced by Integrity Music.

Her songs have also found their way onto countless other worship recordings, including independent productions as well as the works of artists such as Michael W. Smith, Kim Hill,Fred Hammond, and John Tesh. Lynn has been involved in worship ministry on the local church level for over twenty-five years as a worship leader, a songwriter, and a musician. Her songs have been sung in worship throughout the Body of Christ since the early 1980's, and she has been an exclusive songwriter for Integrity Media since 1989. Lynn has also produced ten of her own music recordings to date. The latest CD was released in 2007 (MORE PRECIOUS THAN SILVER - the Songs of Lynn DeShazo). Lynn travels frequently as a guest worship leader, instructor, and minister to a wide variety of churches, retreats, and conferences within the USA and abroad. As a psalmist in the Body of Christ, she helps connect worshipers to the flow of God's Spirit, bringing times of refreshing and healing to God's people.
