Linda born and raised in West Michigan. Lin has an Associate Degree in Occupational Therapy Assisting, but shifted gears to raise three sons and two daughters, homeschooling them for most of their elementary-through-high school years. In 2006-2007, along with Randy and their two youngest children, she completed YWAM’s Discipleship Training School with a correlating short term mission outreach to India. Over the years she has worked with children in many capacities, including both special needs and main stream, in both secular and church settings, from infants through high school. She has tutored students of various levels in a variety of subjects for seven years within the home school community. Best of all, Lin is Grandma to three amazing grandsons, two of which have come to the family via adoption from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Her heart’s passion is to teach young children – to inspire them to love to learn, but above all to lead them to know and recognize the character and voice of their Heavenly Father and to help them experience the joy of walking and talking with Him at a young age. She wants to help children embrace their uniqueness, value, and birthright as children of the Living God.
