Planted By God to Display His Glory -Isaiah 61:3


I’d love to meet you and share God stories with you!Linda Crawford

But just a warning—I’m a hugger, and if you have personal space issues, I’ll invade your comfort zone! 🙂

Here’s why—I just can’t be an ordinary “speaker.”

God has miraculously transformed me from a shy, fearful, “never good enough” girl into a woman willing to step out and share my real self and my real life (not just the pretty parts) in order to give God all the glory.

I’ll probably wear my bright red shoes, but I may not wear the “right” lipstick color or stick to a script.

also might jump into the kitchen to help prepare the meal, or ask to help put up decorations before your event.

That’s because I want to connect with you in real life, not just look at you from a platform.

Expect the unexpected if you invite me to share a story, lead a retreat, or give a training workshop.

We’ll laugh, cry, praise, learn, pray, and share together.

That’s right, you’ll have opportunities to share too, because it’s not all about me, it’s about US.

And it’s so beautiful when the women of the body of Christ join together to display the beauty of Christ in us!

So let’s color life beautiful and share real life, real love and the real hope of Jesus!

I can’t wait to meet you!

Linda Crawford

Comforting Women in Crisis

Divorce, depression, adultery, abuse, miscarriage, cancer…there are women in crisis all around us. But do we know the best words to say? The best things to do?

This practical, interactive workshop will give you the words, actions, scriptures and insight you need to effectively minister God’s love, healing and comfort to women in crisis.

You’ll learn from real life stories of women who have been there, discover new ways to reach out in love, and take home practical tips on how to respond in the most helpful ways possible.

Based on the book, Comforting Women in Crisis, this presentation can be formatted for a 1-2 hour overview, or half day intensive workshop.

 NOTE: This is a great ministry training workshop, but is designed for ALL women, not just those involved in women’s ministry positions.
