My name is Linda and I first started writing in grade school and continued into my teen years to help deal with my life experiences. Journaling gave me the ability to understand how to handle my thoughts and feelings about those experiences. Filling blank pages was an outlet to safely express feelings about myself and people around me.
I believe the written word has the power to challenge our way of thinking. The writing, whether shared as a fiction story, non-fiction testimony, or a memoir can inspire change. Writing allows a reader to get a glimpse into the difficulty or inspiration of someone else’s struggle. As they gauge their own reactions to those of the person they are reading about, it gives them insight in similar circumstances. Where there is insight, there is a possibility of understanding and compassion.
Writing can be a very intimate process. As a writer opens their heart and expresses their thoughts vulnerability is present. I pray that as I grow in putting words on the page of this blog, the impact you experience as a reader is positive, thoughtful, and hopeful. My desire is to help people as I share personal experiences, tools, or insight I gained along the way to healing.
The greatest change in my life came when I accepted Jesus Christ. I am constantly learning how to surrender the hurt and pain I experienced in the past and allow forgiveness to flow into healing. I am thankful for the knowledge of His presence at work in me and through me always.
