Linda Grim is the youngest of eight children. She was born in Spokane, Washington but raised in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. As a child, Linda attended the Nazarene Church and was baptized. During her high school years, she served her local church as President of N.Y.I. (Nazarene Youth International), Captain of the Bible Quiz Team, and as substitute pianist. As a young adult, she wandered away from the church and returned after several years.
In 1986, Linda married Bill Grim. They have two daughters and two dogs. In 1998, God orchestrated a move to Houston Texas – a place she said that she’d NEVER live! Selling their California house and buying their Texas house on the same day was proof of divine intention. God truly has a sense of humor!
In 2000, she attended Kingwood College (now part of Lone Star College) and decided to pursue a degree in interior design. It was in one of those classes Linda met the adjunct professor/commercial architect who would one day be her boss. Being new on the job, Linda received guidance from her co-workers. She had an instant connection with one co-worker in particular. When her co-worker invited Linda to attend a Vineyard Church, she said “yes”. And, there she met Chris Ege (East Texas Aglow) who introduced her to Aglow International on the local chapter level.
Linda has been involved with Northeast Houston Aglow Lighthouse more than seven years. For the past two years, she has served as Prayer Chairman and provided keyboard accompaniment during praise and worship. As the newly established president, Linda is excited to be part of the next step in God’s plan for Aglow.
