It has been my priviledge to serve with Linda Upton at the First Baptist Church in Garland, Texas for five years now. She truly desires to live out the precepts of Scripture and live as a bride pleasing her Groom. It is my prayer that your relationship with Jesus Christ will either begin for the first time or deepen in scope as as you read and engage with this book. I know that much prayer and effort has gone into it by the author. May you never be the same after you complete Beauty from Ashes. We have an awesome Bridegroom! May you become a beauttiful princess bride.

Dr. Greg Ammons, Senior Pastor & Author
First Baptist Church, Garland, Texas

I read both of Linda's books.  I am  convinced that one of the reasons we find it difficult to trust the Lord is because we don’t have a clear concept of His love for us. In Beauty from Ashes, Linda shares her journey with the Lord through a very difficult and dark time as He gently, yet powerfully, brought her to victory and an unshakable faith in His love for her. Scripture by scripture, her interactive book will help you develop the intimate, deep love your Savior wants to have with you.  In Brick by Brick, Linda chronicles the long process of physical healing from a terrible accident. She shows us how her Bridegroom never left her side and guided her through every painful step.  His faithfulness inspired her to further, more fervent, work for His kingdom.
