Linda A. Hillman is affectionately known as Lin, to those she serves. She is anointed to prophesy, preach and teach the gospel of our Lord and Savior. Born in Phoenix, Arizona in August of 1968, Linda is no stranger to life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups. Her sheer determination to share the good news at any cost, no matter what it takes, has allowed her to overcome some adverse situations. Linda kindly reflects on these times as; “What the devil meant for bad. God has definitely turned it around for good. For the very thing that was suppose to take me out has kept me in the game and qualified me.” She has adopted the saying that God can and will do, I am a living witness. Her favorite worship song is Welcome IntoThis Place and she relates to He’s Been Faithful in her everyday life.
