In my 25 years of full time ministry, I have never worked with a more loyal, gracious, wise, insightful and inspiring colleague as Linda.  Whether it was counseling, coaching, challenging, or equipping, she was always ready to come alongside anyone who had a desire to go from where they currently found themselves to new heights in line with what God wanted to do in their lives.

Linda is a developer of leaders and it shows in everything she does.

Linda has dealt very effectively, as clients demonstrate healing, in areas of depression, anxiety, grief, and dealing with great hurts.  She is a woman of great integrity and integrates her faith well into her discipline.  

Linda is one who practices that which she believes and is one of the best counselors I have seen in 50 years of serving as a senior pastor.

No matter what season we may find ourselves in, we sometimes need someone who can hear our story, our heart, and offer wisdom, discernment, and compassion while challenging us to move forward.  Linda brings her training and life experiences together to provide such a listening heart.

Her life experiences have tested her faith, her character, and what she knows so that she can hear more clearly those who seek her help and journey with them to healing and wholeness.

In getting to know Linda over the years, I've been so impressed with her compassion, kindness, godly insights, integrity, and amazing ability to see to the heart of every matter.  She's developed so many incredible gifts as a counselor, not the least of which is the ability to listen in a way that makes you feel as if she's been your friend for years, even if you've only just met her.

For anyone seeking help and direction, she is a standout in her field.

As a pastor, I counsel many who are distressed and broken in spirit.  After meeting with them several times in the Word, they respond positively and get back to living a victorious life.  Other times I am hard pressed by the challenge to minister in an effective way to those who need a consistent and deeper biblical counseling with multiple sessions.

Your ministry has provided that extra help.  I have sent many to you because I know they will receive professional Christ-honoring wisdom.
