On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Linda Wood Rondeau about developing patience as a mother. An award-winning author, Linda serves as both senior editor and acquisitions editor for Elk Lake Publishing. A veteran social worker, her published novels examine the complexities of human relationships. Most of Linda’s work is contemporary fiction. However, she has published both speculative and non-fiction.
Her anticipated release of I Prayed for Patience God Gave Me Children is a second edition and will launch on or about Mother’s Day 2019. Her blog, Snark and Sensibility, hosts writers of various genres. She manages a Facebook page, Having the Prime of My Life, a positive look at aging issues. Linda resides in Hagerstown with her husband of 40 years.. Connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
“I draw from Jesus’ example when he washed the disciples’ feet. We’re called to be servants, whether we have a Ph.D. Or not. And moms are servants,” Linda says. “There’s two kind of lists: Your list and God’s list, and they don’t often match. God doesn’t call us to do things without equipping us to do that tasks. We can ask God and he will give us the wisdom to take care of the situations that seem well beyond us.”
