“Church staff will identify with The Donut Theory, and church members will be entertained and enlightened.” —Reverend Gerald W. Nelson, retired ELCA pastor
“These folksy meditations (part narrative, part advice) express the messy mix of human and divine in the church administrative experience, by one who’s been there.” —Sara Dyrud Bryan, former church secretary and pastor’s wife
“After reading The Donut Theory, I gave it to my church secretary. The next time I saw her, she said, ‘I found myself laughing out loud … many of the stories could have been written about my office!’ ” —Gwynne, Sun City, Arizona
“Linda’s meditations are rich in learning experiences and are reinforced by her faith and ability to find humor in any situation.” —Shirley Cunningham, LCSWW, spiritual director, and author of Chasing God
