Reared on a farm in South Texas, Linda earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Abilene Christian University and Houston Baptist University. She devoted 40 years to students with special needs and reared a daughter and son who are now veterinarians practicing together.

Linda was introduced to the world of publishing in 2007 by winning an essay contest that resulted in the Christian Writers Guild's Writing for the Soul Conference.

Beauty. Most of us can agree beauty is as subjective as beholders themselves.


What’s the origin of the well-known idiom, Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder? I looked it up.
