Linda S. Ingham graduated from Pierce Junior College, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1976 with an Associates in Science Degree and was a legal secretary until 1985, working primarily in the area of criminal and corporate law/litigation. During those years, and in being driven by a passion for music, she also held the Music Director position at Colwyn Baptist Church, gaining knowledge from courses at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey. In that position, she organized the music program, directed three choirs and wrote and taught music theory classes.
In 1985, through a heart transformation, Linda switched careers and went into full-time ministry and has ministered in various ministry settings, including prison ministry, women's residential ministry and now Life Awakening since 2003. iIn 1993, she graduated from the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation, Laverock, Pennsylvania, with a Certificate in Biblical Counseling and Advanced Certificate in Counseling. She also graduated, in 1995, from Philadelphia College of the Bible with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Bible and Leadership and was elected to Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.
In 2003, she began ministry at Wellspring Garden Ministries, now called Life Awakening, and became the Executive Director in 2005. Since that time, she has written the book, God Moves Mountains One Pebble at a Time, the Healing Journey of Naomi Stoltzfus, the Toolkit for Victorious Living and her latest, Life Awakening's Journey, from a small prayer group to the Gospel Process Declaration Ministry. Linda also authored all of the Gospel Process materials that are reflected in this website. The Holy Spirit taught Linda the Gospel Process wherein people can apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ to sin and pain so that they experience the Gospel’s power to become freed and healed from sin and pain no matter how deep they are lodged. Linda has spent endless hours taking people through this Process and can testify to its life-changing power. She believes everyone needs to apply the Gospel Process because everyone struggles and deals with sin and pain.
Linda believes that the Holy Spirit is a person’s primary teacher (I John 2:27) and has learned and is continuing to learn to trust Him to lead her in the various aspects of her life and ministry. She has lived a full single life and, certainly, like everyone else, has had her own sin and pain to deal with in this journey called life.
In the fall of 2012, Miriam joined Life Awakening as a volunteer facilitating Bible Studies with the residents.
A short time later, she became Linda Ingham's Executive Assistant when the ministry moved to their New Holland location.
As the Director of Development and Education, she has been instrumental in developing the courses and the publications of all Life Awakening's printed materials.
Miriam also has the vision to create the LA Academy, where the courses and materials will be accessible online for people around the world.
Her love and devotion for Life Awakening are evident in her tireless efforts to think of a new creative way to share the message of the Gospel Process.
Miriam is full of ideas and loves executing them.
Miriam has 42 years of ministry experience serving with international & national ministries and the local church. She has also served as a board member.
She desires to bring glory and honor to Christ’s name in all that she does.
Chelsea joined the Life Awakening team in March 2021 as the Assistant to the Executive Director. In this role, she completes anything that Linda Ingham asks as well as managing LA's social media accounts. She is highly gifted in administration and finds joy using that gifting for the Lord. Chelsea and her husband, Cory, lead Freedom Church, a micro church, in Ephrata, PA. They are also in the process of starting a new non-profit organization, Unlocked Closet, that will serve the local foster and adoptive community. This is near and dear to their hearts, as they adopted both of their children from foster care. She also serves as a board member for House of Hope and Restoration. In 2010, she graduated from Millersville University with a BSE in Music Education and received a Certificate in Bookkeeping from the US Career Institute in 2020. She is currently pursuing a Graphic Design Certificate through the New York Institute of Art and Design. Chelsea is so excited to work with Linda and be part of Life Awakening! She can't wait to see how God expands this ministry and how He utilizes her giftings in all of it.
When I was a little girl, God placed a special love in my heart for children. I had unique relationships with them throughout the years in the various seasons and experiences of my life. My passion is to develop a ministry for children to walk in the freedom and wholeness God has for them. Please pray as we are in the beginning stages of adapting the Gospel Process materials for children.
