Seeking Higher Ground…
Hi! I’m Linda, thanks for visiting my site!
I’ve been married to my best friend, Mike, for over 30 years; we live in Southern California and have three grown children. I homeschooled our children beginning in 1994, from kindergarten up through high school. My homeschooling journey ended when our youngest graduated from high school in 2011.
During my years of homeschooling, I taught various classes for different homeschool programs and a few private classes in my home. Most of the classes I’ve taught have been upper elementary history classes and Jr. High and High School literature and composition courses. In 2000, I went back to school to finish my Bachelor’s degree, and in 2007 I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a BA in English. After retiring from homeschooling, I continued to teach weekly classes and tutor, and to help my husband with his growing lawn care business, but now have a new full-time career as an administrative professional.
For those who want to know, I am a Christian of the Reformed Baptist persuasion, and our family is very involved in our church in Ontario, CA. In my free time I love to explore new books, exercise, and watch movies with Mike or my mother-in-law who lives with us. We’re having fun getting back into rockclimbing again now that the kids are raised.
To God for my husband and three kids; for granting me the patience and diligence to teach them at home over the years; and for the many opportunities I’ve had to grow and learn through my teaching experiences.

Wow didn’t know you were Reformed Baptist!
Have you not noticed how many books by reformed writers I recommend? 😉
I should have noticed!
Hi, Linda! Great site! I also graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a BA in English! Awesome college and wonderful dedicated teachers. I would like to submit a book for review; would you please send me your submission guidelines? Thank you and have a blessed day!
Hi Mary, I receive many requests every month for book reviews and am very selective about the ones I will post here. For one thing my To-Read list is ever growing and I can only read so much. Also, you may have noticed my site has a specific focus, that being Books I believe every Christian should read. That doesn’t mean every book I publish a review on will necessarily meet that criteria, but I limit my reviews mostly to works of non-fiction, history/biography, and classic literature that I feel are profitable for Christians to read. For the most part, I really don’t do young children’s books (although I have shared a few), nor contemporary secular “self-help” books, fiction, romance, or sci-fi. You may certainly email me about your book, but as I say, I am very careful about the books I agree to read and review because 1) I feel I owe it to them to read it promptly while I have so many others I want to read soon, and 2) if I don’t care for it or don’t want to share it on my site I feel bad.
