After losing her parents at an early age she learned that life is difficult and filled with disappointment, liar’s, thieves and abuse. After spending many years on a course of self-destruction, angry with the God she blamed for taking her parents she was brought to her knees by a loving heavenly Father who had been there for her all along. Her passion is to empower women to live in freedom from the past and transformation for the future from the Father’s gentle hand.
Linnette is a professional trainer and coach and has worked for several Fortune 100 and 500 companies as well as owning her own successful Event Planning business. She has been in Children’s Ministry and Women’s Ministry for over 25 years. Her love for the Lord is communicated on and off the platform through her love for people and her heart for the hurting.
She lived in Iowa for most of her life but when her only child Linnea moved to Ohio with her husband and 3 beautiful children, she moved to be close to them and be an active part of their lives. Now calling Ohio home she has built a ministry in her work place, and has continued both her Women’s and Children’s ministry.
When she isn’t speaking or working she spends as much time as possible with her active family, Linnea, Matt and grandchildren Matthew, Abigail and Sarah. She has a passion for nature (where she says she sees God in everything), and music and coffee are her constant companions. She says she is the one that you pull up next to in the car and laugh because she’s singing at the top of her s lungs and her hands are often in the air! Her passion for life is to enjoy all the moments God gives her and to help as many people as possible to do the same.
