Linda E. Clementson has been a Christian since 1986. The Lord has opened doors where she is able to tell her story to many womens' groups. She has seen many women come to faith in Christ. Linda was physically and verbally abused by her father for the first Twelve years of her life. With a low self image, Linda got involved with many harmful things. Pregnant at sixteen, she chose to have an abortion. Alcohol grew to dependence and was the first thing that the Lord removed from her life. Linda lived her life with little restraints. She was trying to cover up all the guilt she felt over having an abortion and the terrible life that she was living. Nothing could take those feelings away. Fishing was the only thing that gave her time away from constantly thinking about how she had ruined her life. Thankfully, one day while watching an evangelist on T.V., it was as if he was talking right to her. She soon found herself on the living room floor, crying like she had never cried before. She was asking for Gods' forgiveness for every evil thing she had done. Jesus Christ was there to meet her. He let down his fishing pole full of love, forgiveness, and grace. Linda finally took the bait and has never been the same.
