About Hermana Linda
Hermana means sister in Spanish and Linda is my name. I was born in late 1960 to a mother who had traveled around the world and had been impressed at the baby wearing she saw in Africa and Japan. While in Japan she purchased the baby carrier in which she is wearing me in my avatar. By the grace of God, I trusted Jesus as my personal savior in 1983. He gave me a husband in 1987 and 2 sons in the early 1990's. All glory to God.

    Linda….Your link to Samuel Martin’s new series “Who are the Christian advocates of corporal punishment (spanking) of children? – part 1” doesn’t exist (according to the response I get when I click on this link). Just thought I’d let you know there is a kink somewhere.

    I love the appellation “gutter theology”! That is the best description yet for the Pearls’ teachings.
    Thanks, once again.
