What Others Are Saying…

Dr. Linda,

We are ever so grateful to have had the pleasure of hearing you speak at our BOMiCON event this past weekend! We have heard nothing but wonderful things from our campers about your presentation 🙂 You are the epitome of fearless!! Thank you!!

Boramey Hem, Events Coordinator, Bombshell Fitness

“Linda Travelute spoke to our group about “Fear Busters” and wow did I gain a lot from this topic.  We all have fears of one thing or another, and she got me thinking about my fears in a totally different way.  She said “think of the results, not the fear”, and yes, this is something we all should know, but not something we think about since “fear” is the only thing on our mind.  I highly recommend Linda and will use her again for future presentations.

Sharon Owen, President of Central Florida Association of Legal Administrators

“The people of City Point Church had an amazing weekend with Dr. Linda Travelute. On Friday and Saturday she was the guest speaker at our Sozo Sisterhood Ladies Conference. Our women were deeply ministered to as Dr. Linda brought God’s principles clearly but yet with simplicity. We enjoyed her humor and our ladies commented that she was very approachable. Immediately following the conference, I had several women ask when she would be coming back for another conference!

On Sunday Dr. Linda shared in both services and many came forward during the altar call to find help in their spiritual walk. Having Dr. Linda here at City Point was definitely a “God thing”, and we look forward to having her back for future events. If you are in need of a speaker that will challenge. encourage, and bring hope to your people, I recommend Dr. Linda Travelute.”
