Phillip Yancey says that “every writer has one main theme, a spoor that he or she keeps sniffing around, tracking, following it to its source.” My spoor is “grace,” states Linda Teeple, author of The Nature of Grace: Ponderings On God’s Abundant Grace. “I write about Grace because I want everyone to ‘get’ grace. There’s a life-changing difference between understanding grace at the head level and experiencing grace at the heart level. God continually reminds me of his grace through nature--the nature of the great outdoors, the nature of the human heart, and the nature of relationships." Linda is a marriage and family therapist by vocation and a naturalist by avocation. She resides in Anderson, Indiana with her husband and her canine companions, Panda and Leader Dog puppy, Faith. Linda writes a weekly newspaper column entitled, "The Nature of Grace," which can be viewed at http://www.heraldbulletin.com.
