By creatively using humor and life experiences, this book will exhort and encourage you to spend time with the Lord and listen to His voice (heartbeat). After 36 years of teaching, playing sports and several pets, Linda uses powerful examples of God teaching her His Word and conversations they shared. Chapter titles like, "World's Fastest Brake Foot," God's One-Liners," "You Can't Pull A Goat," and "God Uses Sump Pumps and Burning Bushes" will peak your curiosity. It is important to know what the Bible says and so scripture is used throughout. This book not only entertains but is a teaching tool. Linda grew up in Michigan where she enjoyed church activities and sports. In high school, she was a member of the National Honor Society and graduated in the Top Ten of her class. She graduated from Huntington College in Huntington Indiana in 1972 with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education. Before retiring in 2010, she taught school for 36 years with the last 13 being in juvenile corrections. In 2005 she finished her Master of Arts in Biblical Studies. The Lord has used Linda as an educator, exhorter, and encourager while ministering in church services, Sunday school, and women's ministries.
