And ye shall know the truth,
Information on LAM
Life Application Ministries was founded in June of 1995 by Linda Lange. The basis for this ministry was from what God did in her life. She was brought out of fear, anxiety, stress, panic attacks and physical ailments such as irritable bowel syndrome, chemical sensitivity, candida, lower back pain, and stress related disorders. She now lives free from these ailments and wants to share her discoveries with you so you too can find hope and healing for your own life. Here is her testimony in her own words.
I had a desire to share with others what I have been through that lead to my total healing and deliverance from 30 years of anxiety, fear, phobias and panic attacks. I believe that if I can be healed in my mind, body and spirit, anyone can. So I began this ministry to share the truth that made me free. "We are sanctified by truth". (John 17:17) Sanctification is a process and every believer is on that road. We are changed from glory to glory. But some people may feel like they are stuck. Some feel they have somehow disappointed God. Some think God doesn't even care about them. Some think God loves others more than He loves them. I didn't know that this type of thinking kept me in that place of fear. I was one of them. I was wandering in the wilderness for over 21 years as a Christian before finding the truth I'll be imparting to you. It reminds me of the Israelites, it took them 40 years to make an 11-day trip because of their stinkin' thinkin'.
When I received Christ as my personal Savior, it wasn't the end, it was just the beginning because as a stubborn and hardened person, it was going to take an "act of God" to get through to me. And that's just what happened. I was a hard nut to crack, that was for certain, but God is bigger than the shell I created around myself. I was changed at conversion, no doubt about that, my heart was different, I stopped going to bars, drinking, smoking, and began sharing my faith. My family was shocked by the way I changed. I happened to be the "black sheep" of the family going down the wrong road. But since my salvation, my 5 sisters, my mother and father, aunts, uncles, nephews, and nieces accepted Christ as their personal Savior! That I believe was a MIRACLE! But for me, I was still bound by sin, but frankly, I didn't even know that's what it was - sin. I felt like I was trudging water, just stuck in one place and felt there was no way out. Once the years began to roll by, I wasn’t gaining much speed. I was stale in my walk with the Lord, I didn’t have much joy, and I was sick all the time. Oh, I attended church regularly and so forth, but something was missing. Something wasn’t quite right. I wasn’t living in the abundance the Bible speaks about. I wasn’t experiencing the "cup that runneth over". And I certainly didn’t have enough to give to anyone else to bless them as the Bible says we are to do. So I began my quest, and with that I started this ministry.
I wrote an auto-biography called "A Matter of the Mind." It took me three years to write because how do you conclude a book when it's about your life and you are still living? But the Lord gave me the final chapter, and in that chapter I share how I found my freedom. This book is also designed to help you write your own story. It incorporates what I went through and equips you to help you "go through" too. If you would like a copy of this book, please go to: Book Sales
How this ministry started: In June of 1995, I began holding quarterly meetings. They were comprised of guest speakers, singers, luncheons, fashion shows, and workshops. Although these things were fun and had some purpose, it wasn't what I felt I was supposed to be doing. I knew I was supposed to be doing something, but also wanted a ministry that changed lives, not just a ministry where people would go to be entertained. My prayer was answered! Through a series of events in my life, God gave me the ministry as it is today.
Three years later, starting in 1998, I began holding seminars and retreats teaching what God taught me. (You can read more about it in my testimony). I have seen hundreds of people find what they were looking for. I also network with a number of ministries that have the same goals because even though I do share a lot of the Word and what God has taught me personally, I only know in "part." However, I believe the "part" I am sharing is one of those pieces that could be missing from your life as it was in mine. I have seen people who have gone through the teachings and seminars change before my eyes, especially as we begin dealing with love and forgiveness.
The goal of this ministry is to help people find that "missing link" that "one thing" that will make all the difference in their world. And what is that one thing? That's what this ministry is going to help you discover in debth, but to give it to you in one line: To be restored in relationship with your Heavenly Father, with Jesus the Son, the Holy Spirit, with yourself and with others. (Matthew 22:38-40).
See, I thought I had a proper relationship with God already, but I didn't. After learning the truth, I realized I had a wrong image of God - I saw Him waiting for me to do something wrong so He could bop me on the head. I knew Jesus was my Savior, but I didn't have a solid relationship with Him because if I did I wouldn't have been filled with guilt and shame. I barely knew anything about the Holy Spirit, I didn't have any power as the Bible says we had as believers. And I didn't like myself much at all, not to mention issues with other people. I learned that these were the very things that robbed me from the joy of the Lord and all His blessings. But now my life has been restored in every area and I'm seeing the promises of God at work in my life!
Because of this life changing experience, this website was created to help you receive all that God has for you too. My goal as a teacher and minister; to help you receive God's abundant Grace (His love and approval) which opens the door to all the promises written in the Word of God.
I have also compiled a book of testimonials that people have written because of what we are teaching and how it impacted their lives. It's available to read when you attend one of the seminars. However, we now have a place on this website where you can share your testimonial so others can be encouraged. Please email your testimony to me and I'll place it on the web.
