I drive a minivan and wear sensible shoes…most of the time. But my husband calls me “lead-foot Linda,” I love red shoes and race cars, and I’m passionate about helping women pursue God with no speed limits.
A transplanted Maine native (and diehard Red Sox fan), I have also lived in Vienna, Austria where I fulfilled a life-long dream to sing like Julie Andrews on a mountainside outside of Salzburg (yes, the hills are still alive after my performance). And as unlikely as it may seem, I have a cache of trophies from my younger (much younger) years as a professional rally car co-driver. (I don’t think my mother has recuperated from that phase of my life yet.)
As a writer, I’ve been privileged to author Bible studies and women’s ministry resources with Group Publishing since 2005. As much as I love writing, my “real” career has been working as an occupational therapist for over twenty years helping people rehabilitate from injuries or illness. In addition, I have had the honor of leading national small group and volunteer ministry training workshops, women’s retreats, and prayer ministries. My two Bible studies: Finding Balance and A Taste of Freedom are available from Group Publishing.
When I’m not driving too fast, dreaming of the Sound of Music, or hugging my furry dog, husband or daughter, (not necessarily in that order) you can find me here, squeezing words out of my toothpaste tube of a brain, or out in the sunshine dreaming of climbing one of the majestic Rocky Mountains in my backyard.
