Better - NOT Bitter!
Linda Isaiah

Satan had her on his hit list. He thought a traumatic childhood, sexual abuse and a series of devastating life experiences would derail her destiny. But God had another plan.
He instead turned her misery into ministry.

This anointed Woman of God is passionate about equipping women with the essential tools for victory in every circumstance. She willingly pulls back the curtain of her life and with transparency, shares her journey of heartbreak, healing and hope. In her practical, straightforward and humorous style she infuses hope in the hearts of her listening audience.

Linda was ordained as a Pastor on March 25, 2015, at The House of The Lord Church, where Bishop F.J. Johnson is the senior pastor. She has been married to Rev. Erroll L. Isaiah for 34 years and is the proud parent of a 12 old son, Erroll II.

Minister Linda has a passion for children and women. Because of her passion, she has launched her own Women’s Conference entitled “Unleashed Hope” through LCI Ministries, where she is the Founder and President. Her purpose is to win the world for Christ, one woman at a time.

Linda has been featured on TBN, and is a conference speaker, workshop leader and life coach to many. Minister Isaiah is a certified Grief Recovery Specialist and has completed a course of study at Logos Bible Institute.

She enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling and reading.

For Such a Time as This
Anita Gutschick

Come get to know Queen Esther, Lot’s Wife and Rahab; three women that demonstrate the power of women. Experience their struggles, decisions, fears. Join them in laughter and lessons. See how God can use the most unlikely woman to do great things; an orphan and a prostitute. In the case of Lot’s Wife see how by clinging to the past she was derailed from the future God had planned for her!


For every performer, there’s a key role and a key moment, and for Anita Gutschick both came in 1998. She had been performing character sketches of biblical women for years but had decided that she was more interested in pursuing a career in secular theater. Yet on that key day in 1998, a woman in the audience came up to her after a church performance and said, “I really need to thank you.” Confused, Anita just nodded. After a moment’s silence, the woman added, “I’m Lot’s Wife.” Her husband had recently died of cancer, and Anita’s performance of Lot’s Wife helped her summon the faith to look forward to the future. This experience convinced Anita that God was calling her to full-time ministry with Women of the Bible.

Since then, Anita has performed Women of the Bible over 1,000 times (and counting!) in more than 36 states and the District of Columbia. She has appeared at small and large churches, women’s retreats and conferences, denominational gatherings, youth groups, and even birthday parties. Along the way, Anita has traveled tens of thousands of miles to bring the stories of biblical women to today’s audiences.

Anita is an accomplished actress with a resume that includes roles in many community theater groups, including the Colonial Players of Annapolis. She is known in the greater Baltimore/Washington, DC area for her extensive stage work as well as her work in radio and film. She has studied acting, voice, and movement.

Anita has been a member of Christians in Theatre Arts, The Network of Biblical Storytellers and the Religious Conference Management Association. She is active in her church, has served as a deacon, and has participated in Bible Study Fellowship. In 2004 she took a Walk to Emmaus – De Colores!
