Linda has a heart to heal marriages, but even more than that she has a heart to heal lives. She and her husband Marv have experienced the pain of a disrupted marriage and the confusion of wondering where God was in the midst of trauma. Their individual searches for God bring connection and healing to broken hearts.


Linda is available to speak on a variety of topics tailored to your groups’ individual needs.

Most Popular Topics include:

Separated but Not Divorced: Helping the Separated Heal Their Marriages

This workshop, which has been presented at AMFM Conferences , can be given to individual churches. If you would like Linda and Marv to teach staff or lay persons in your church about how to minister to separated people in your congregation, please contact Linda by email at linda@brokenheartonhold.com.

A Common Thread in Troubled Marriages – Assertive vs. Passive Spouses

Is it possible that you are too assertive or too passive in your marriage without realizing it? Linda describes an unseen negative undercurrent she has observed in ministering to couples, which has undermined many marital relationships. It’s not what you think, but it can be lethal and eventually sweep a marriage into the chaos of brokenness.

Finding Your Happy-Ever-After When The Fairy Dust Disappears

By the time we reach 35, many of us women find our much anticipated “happy-ever-after” beginning to elude us. Where did it go? How did we miss it? At some point the fairy dust disappears, and real life hits us hard – and it hurts. But it doesn’t have to defeat us. Those tough times can make us stronger. It can make us better persons. And our happy-ever-after may be waiting for us on the other side.

Detours on the Road to Success

We all have certain plans of our own, ideas of how we think we want our lives to go.

When our plans are interrupted, we become frustrated and annoyed. But sometimes there’s another plan that is bigger than ours, and better than ours.

This talk is appropriate for both men and women

Sitting at the Red Light

This talk is directed to men and women who are separated or dealing with a marital crisis that seems to have no immediate resolution. From the writings of Broken Heart on Hold, Linda brings a message of healing and hope for the brokenhearted.

This can be a talk for a single meeting or expanded into a weekend event that will challenge participants to grow in areas that can bring healing and change.

How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways.

We women were created to love and be loved. Yet sometimes that love we long for from others eludes or disappoints us. Linda Rooks, author of Broken Heart on Hold, takes us on a journey into the heart of love. Together we explore its sweetness, its mystery, its adventure, its confusion and its promise. Bring your mental camera. You may see pictures of love you didn’t expect, but will want to remember.

“How Do I Love Thee” can either be a one-time talk to a woman’s group, or a retreat for women. Retreat Sessions include: Finding the Unconditional Love We Want; If God Really Loves Me, Why Did This Bad Thing Happen?; Pictures of God’s Love: A Tour of Our Favorite Love Stories; Love’s Paradox.
