Linda is an only child who grew up an army brat. She survived and waded through the aftermath of the Joplin, MO F-5 tornado. Linda took care of her mother through her battle and subsequent death. She's the director of a children’s ministry, also worked on grant writing, and mentors many women younger than her. She's a wife to Kevin, mother of two grown sons, Taylor and Garrett, and a “music-loving artsy-craftsy” kind of gal glittering up the world wherever she can. She completed her degree in Graphic Design in the latter part of homeschooling her sons from Kindergarten through High School. Linda enjoys conversation and a good laugh with friends over home cooked food that she has made.
