For every abused woman, and for every truth teller that can't be bought off. For every believer who relies on the faithfulness of God and trusts in the Lord through trials. This is positive reinforcement.. but it is a cry for help and justice and for continued prayer to survive this ordeal!! God Bless Her!!
Linda's story really pulls back the curtain to reveal the many jaw dropping and painful moments that she has had to endure from people and an institution that is known quite differently from the outside. It also reveals God's love, provision, guidance and protection during the most difficult times of her life. And I enjoyed the narration, it really brought the story to life and causes you feel the heartfelt issues of the moment. Good job!

Any additional comments?
It brings to light an epidemic in ministries of all kinds. Linda's experience may be a "poster child" on a road littered with similar stories. It's a travesty to Christianity and it's potential in a world that increasingly rejects the Bible and anyone who teaches from it.
