A Heaping Heart Full of Humility
Linda shares personal experiences that have humbled her and taught her the value God places on humility. She discusses the differences between humility and humiliation, and the positive results that humility will bring about as we practice it in our own lives. Optional: Linda will perform an original humorous dramatization of a Modern Day Martha, from the familiar Bible story of Mary and Martha.
Clothed in Christ
Linda speaks to the hearts of women about how as daughters of the Lord we need to reflect our inner God-given beauty. We’ll discover how to adorn ourselves with the same spiritual “garments” worn by Christ. Optional: Also available is a humorous skit written by Linda entitled The Fashion Show, which may be performed by the women of your church as a fun and entertaining introduction to her talk.
Hope – God Can use Suffering for Good
A story of healing and hope from Linda’s own life, describing how God faithfully carried her through emotional and physical pain. Optional: An original monologue performed by Linda entitled, The Wife of Job.
As depicted in her book, Joshua’s Story, Linda tells how God intervened in the life of Linda’s third child, Joshua. Linda was at the point of death during the fifth month of her pregnancy. The specialist who was called in advised that her baby be delivered immediately, or she would not survive. A decision was made to leave the results to God. Linda was healed, and then informed that Joshua would most likely be born physically or mentally challenged. Linda and her husband, Gary, knew that they would love their child, no matter what his condition. The results were truly a gift from God.

Led By Love
Linda shares her journey of finding Christ as her Bridegroom with the loving intention of enticing other women to also become a “Bride of Christ.” This talk is aimed at both single and married women, yet fits in nicely with a wedding theme for your event.

You are in Control of Your Life: True or False?
