Originally from Toledo, Ohio, she grew up as the middle of three daughters to Robert, a hard-working factory machinist and Airforce veteran and Marilyn, a stay at home mom. In high school, she had a focus on theatre and music where she aspired like many young people to some day make it on Broadway, until she entered a relationship with Jesus Christ and and life took on new meaning. She graduated with a B.Ed. in Spanish, and an M.A. in TESOL and Bilingual Education and has been involved in various church ministries and short term mission trips to Mexico and El Salvador. In her free time, Linda enjoys Chrisian music, writing songs and poetry, reading, traveling and cheering on her favorite sports teams. Linda attends Lakewood Church where she has learned so much about who she is in Christ, His extraordinary grace and unconditional love which has brought and continues to bring much healing. It is her desire to share her experiences to help others discover the riches of God’s love and their worth and value as His children, created in His image with a divine destiny.
