my story


Linda lives with her husband, Tim, in a little town tucked between the everchanging bay and the deep blue sea on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. 

Retired from private counseling practice and years of ministry leadership, she now pens PORCH, an online weekend newsletter and is devoted to nurturing her lively blog community at LindaStoll.net.  

Linda also serves as a Stephen Ministry Leader in her local church, and can be found counseling women in international ministry and designing innovative small groups as the need arises.

Her ultimate focus in this season is family, especially her six grandchildren, ages 12-18, who are the joy of her life.  
After Jesus, of course.

Linda holds an M.S. in Christian Counseling from Cairn University and a B.S. in Organizational Management from Nyack College.  She maintains board certifications in pastoral counseling and mental health coaching.

You'll find her beachcombing, pretending she's a gardener, ferreting out the best in e-book deals to share with her bookish readers ... and posting daily Scripture verses and other read-worthy items on LinkedIn.
