Hi, my name is Linda Throgmorton. This blog “Living by God’s Word – A Subject Devotional for Everyday Life” will be dedicated to spiritual help, inspiration and guidance.
Along with my Subject Devotionals, I will be adding God inspired poems from my “Poems of the Spirit” book, which was written in 1998. I will also be adding some newer poems that were not included in the book.
Be sure to follow my blog, as I will be adding new content regularly.
