Today on the TBB podcast is my very dear friend Linda Paulk.
Linda is married to Bob, a captain in the Naval Reserves, and are blessed with two children.
Linda defines the word thrive this way, “you know you are following God’s will for your life when you know you are in touch with who He created you to be, and you are using the gifts that He gave you, all for His glory.”
For years, Linda felt her identity was defined by corporate success. But twelve years ago, she left a position as CEO of a large corporation and began to walk a new journey, a spiritual revival, where God began to help her define who He made her to be. As God began revealing His plan for her life, she realized He had a much bigger plan than she had realized.
God used multiple people to show Linda she was putting Him in a box. She began a slow journey of letting go of fear, knowing fear is not of God. After much prayer, Linda moved forward into full time ministry as the CEO of Sky Ranch.
Linda and I talked about marriage and what she felt has been the most challenging time during their marriage. She felt that, by far, becoming empty nesters has been the toughest. She and Bob found a great resource, His Needs, Her Needs: Building an Affair-Proof Marriage: Willard F. Harley a study guide and book which has been life changing.
In our interview, Linda shared with me some valuable advice, “Become aware of who you are and don’t be afraid to know who you are and who you are not.”
I would encourage you to check out Sky Ranch, an incredible christian family camp. They are in the business of making Jesus famous and leading youth and families to know and follow Christ.
Here’s my interview with Linda Paulk.
