When the evening news reported a dead baby abandoned in a local dumpster, Linda Znachko’s comfortable life changed. She was suddenly convicted—God was asking her to provide a dignified burial for this tiny lost child. Linda said yes. She had no idea where that first small yes would lead.
Linda found herself in places she never dreamed she would be: at the graveside of the child of an abused mother; by the side of a mother fighting for her lost child; and at the funeral of a Texas stripper who died two days before her baptism but left a legacy of love behind. When Linda stepped out of her comfort zone and into these implausible places with people she was unlikely to otherwise encounter, she discovered the life she never knew she wanted—a life of saying yes to God whenever He asks.
Today, Linda has a ministry that gives children a name in life, and dignity and honor in death. When she shares her stories of broken lives redeemed, other broken people respond, and so the ripple effects of that long-ago yes continue to spread, touching lives that yearn for healing, and underscoring the fact that every life matters to God.
I loved this book. I love non-fiction books that tell a person’s story and how God used them in ways they never imagined. This book is just that.
Linda is such an inspiration. Her complete obedience is totally amazing. She simply listened to the call of Jesus’ voice and did what he told her. It is incredible how God brought other believers into her life to stand beside her.
Her ministry is so much more than it first appears. She is truly ministering to these woman and offering them a peace that can only come for Jesus.
If you want to read a story of hope this is a must read.
A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
