Lina Abujamra

Lina Abujamra Womens Retreat

Capacity: Open!

Lina Abujamra started blogging before everyone and their brother had a blog, and back then, her mother and 3 other people read what she wrote. She threatened to quit every 2-3 months but was glad she didn’t because eventually, a publisher from Moody Publishers found her and she got to write two books, "Thrive: The Single Life as God Intended", and "Stripped: When God’s Call Turns from Yes to Why Me?".

Even though she makes a living taking care of children as a Pediatric ER doctor, her main passion in life is to tell others about Jesus and the love He has for each of us, which she does through her ministry called Living with Power.
