For decades, Linda Seiler felt like a man trapped in a female body and was exclusively attracted to women. Today, she is content in a female body and wholly attracted to men, offering a unique, compassionate perspective as one who has struggled with her own sexuality and gender identity. An ordained Assemblies of God minister, Linda led a team to pioneer Chi Alpha (XA) at Purdue University in 2007 and served as the XA director until 2020, when she stepped into a new role as a National Chi Alpha Field Specialist, training campus missionaries and student leaders in matters of applied theology and culture. Linda also serves as the executive director of ReStory Ministries, established to equip churches to address LGBTQ. Linda earned a PhD in Intercultural Studies from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary with her dissertation consisting of thirty case studies of men and women who were once same-sex-attracted and have experienced transformation. Dr. Seiler’s forthcoming book (Fall 2023) highlights some of her personal story in addition to the latest research from her PhD dissertation and ministry experience. Linda is an avid golfer, dark chocolate lover, and cat mom to feline Facebook sensations Bo & Tabby.
