Malinda Luken

Malinda Luken

Malinda is a daughter of the King, saved by grace through faith in Jesus. In her own words, “I do not have an impressive skill set or brilliant mind, but a simple faith that believes that when I show up where God directs and yield my will to His, He will use me in some way, however small or large, to accomplish His purpose. It is my desire to be used by God to help show His love to those in need, so that, together, we might enjoy our relationships with Him and each other and bring glory to His name. I am a wife, and mother of three. I enjoy reading, helping, spending time outdoors (especially in warm weather and in the company of those I love), and travel. I count it a privilege to serve on the Bridge Ministries Board.”

She loves to write, cook, and listen to the hum of the refrigerator when all is quiet at night. She carves out time each fall to manage Hallelujah Toffee with her mom, Jeannie Burns, and their amazing staff of volunteers. She has been married for 15 years to her high school sweetheart and fellow follower of Christ, Craig. They have three young children, who God uses to bring them to their knees each day!
