I’m Linda Molitor, your new intern. I’m so excited to spend the next year here at St. Paul Lutheran in Stillwater doing ministry together.
I’m a second career seminarian spending much of my first career involved in raising my sons and working in various administrative jobs. The advantage of being a second career person means that I have a lot of life experience to draw on and am not afraid to try something different. This is my final year of my degree program so once the internship is completed I will be ready to take my first call.
I attended college at Augustana in Sioux Falls getting my bachelor’s degree in Sociology in 2008. I’m not a lifelong Lutheran but married into the faith 27 years ago and fell in love with the message of grace and love that permeates the church’s doctrine. Over the years, I have been involved with several different congregations and enjoy seeing what churches have in common and how they differ from one another.
I’m a native of the Twin Cities and grew up in Cottage Grove. I currently live in East St. Paul with my sons near the 3M complex. My family has moved around a bit and we have also lived in Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Federal Way, Washington and Grantsburg, Wisconsin. My two sons are grown with my youngest, Eli, being 18. He is completing his senior year at Harding High School in St. Paul and planning on going on for training in a computer career. His older brother, Peter, is 22 and works at the St. Paul Midway Menard’s. Peter is still exploring what he wants for his career. We also have a dog, Midnight, who is a mixed breed about the size of a cocker spaniel and has been with us for 15 years. We are looking forward to meeting you and being part of your faith community for this next year.
