These stories portray a smorgasbord of interesting, humorous, inspiring lives of chilling tear slinging accounts of a few people integrated into the life of the writer. In the life of the writer, mountains and valleys have been more frequent than level plain. From Mississippi to Chicago, the author tells of her desperate intent to do the right thing which periodically landed her in muddy waters. Young, naïve, and in love, she was determined to fly high like an eagle but with blurred vision landed her just to the left of her target. God was always there.
As the valedictorian of her class, she tended to make poor choices by listening to the voice of a different drummer. She pursued God and a life with Him who continued to rescue her from the awkwardness of her life. Guided by the best, lured by the complacent and partnering with the slothful created tension at the head of each family unit. That with her hazy sight versus God’s perfect vision was always greater than her ability to fly.
Dig in with the author and see how God rescues her on every turn. There are BONUS biblical interpretations of three stories and a poem.
She was reared in the rural South where Crossroads Church of God, Farmhaven, Mississippi, became a training base for developing skills in singing, speaking and leading.
As an adult, Linda became more interested and involved in speaking, writing and storytelling. Her involvement in ministry qualified her to be ordained by the state of Illinois later in her Christian journey. She now preaches, speaks, tells biblical stories, original stories, African American History stories, fairy tales, and more. Linda was twice privileged to tell at the Goodman Theater in downtown Chicago. She has told for the National Association of the Church of God which is held annually in Pennsylvania, the Festival Gatherings of the Network of Biblical Storytellers International and NBS Canada; as the resident storyteller for the Church of God state convention in Illinois, many libraries, churches and more.
Linda earned a Master of Arts degree in adult education from National Louis University. She has earned many awards including "Toastmaster of the Year," and subsequently competed and won the five-county region’s competition. To further crafting her skills, she maintains active memberships in several local, national and international storytelling groups.
