My name is Linda Wilson. I began writing in grade school and wrote during my teens to help deal with my life experiences. Journaling helped me to understand my thoughts and feelings toward those experiences and filling blank pages with words gave me an opportunity to safely express those feelings about myself and the people around me.
I believe the written word has the power to challenge our way of thinking. The writings, whether shared as a fiction story, non-fiction testimony, or a memoir can inspire change. Writing allows a reader to have 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. As I grow in putting my words together and expressing my thoughts, I hope the impact you experience is positive, thoughtful, and hopeful. My desire is to help people as I share personal experiences, tools and insight I have 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.
