Encouraging Insights from Linda

Linda’s inspirational thoughts and real-life anecdotes tell of God’s loving care through thick and thin. You will laugh, you might cry, but most of all you will be encouraged knowing that He has everything under control.


Linda Handzel grew up with two brothers in a Christian home and began her personal relationship with Jesus Christ at a young age. Soon after she completed her college education, Linda noticed a handsome man in the young adult's Sunday school class. This young man named Michael noticed her too and soon asked Linda to go out with him. In only six months, Michael asked Linda to marry him, and five months later they were married. God blessed them with four children, whom Linda home-schooled from K-12th grade.

Just before their 24th wedding anniversary, tragedy struck the Handzel family. Michael was killed instantly when someone hit him on his motorcycle, and Linda had to deliver the news to her children: "Daddy's gone to Heaven." Through the dark days and long nights of grief, Linda has never been alone. God has faithfully led her through the many trials and transitions that were brought on by Michael's death.

Linda's public speaking ministry began soon after Michael died, and her message to women is that God loves us and wants to help us through the hurts, heartaches, and horrors of life. She shares both personal anecdotes and stories from the Bible, using them to illustrate that God has a perfect plan for each one of us.

Linda also carries a Bachelor of Theology degree, and that, combined with her God-given gift of ministering, speaks to the confidence and divine inspiration that enable her to minister to those seeking God during difficult moments in life.


"Just came from a retreat where Linda was the speaker. She is a wonderful speaker, sharing with us her heart and making us laugh and cry. If you get a chance to hear her, don' t pass it up."

"Linda is an amazing speaker of the Lord's Word! She spoke at our women's retreat today, and she was very moving, honest & humorous. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a speaker! I'm thankful to have heard The Lord's message spoken through such a bright source. May God continue to bless all that you are and do, Linda! I hope to see you again."

"As Linda was speaking at our ladies retreat, I was thinking of super heroes. I will call her God's Transformer as she transforms lives through her relationship with the Lord. She is open and honest in her presentation and really pokes at the heart and hits those places that hurt. She has triumphed over loss and helps others to triumph as well. I enjoyed her uplifting, heartfelt message that was sometimes emotional and hilarious."
