First Lady Linda Willis
A lady of style and elegance, First Lady Linda Willis has faithfully led The Lighthouse Church of All Nations in Alsip, Illinois alongside her husband Pastor Dan Willis since its founding in 1977. She is the proud Mother of Melody, Rachel, Holly & Chad and Grandmother to eight grandchildren.
Involved for many years as the leader of the Christian Education Program at The Lighthouse Church, First Lady Linda’s heart has always beat passionately for children and young people. After transitioning leadership of the Children’s Ministry to her daughter Rachel, she created a Youth Arts Workshop called Youth.Org. This group engages countless teenagers in dance, drum-lines, poetry, hip-hop, music, drama and more, which they present weekly at worship services and events throughout the city and nation.
An accomplished artist and interior decorator her influence is seen throughout the halls and rooms of The Lighthouse Church and her prolific inspirational writing has fed souls during her devotions and teaching. Her latest venture was starting her business, Three Sister’s Beauty. An organic collection of body, hair, and skincare for the entire family. As she says, “It started in a box, I dubbed my favorite body butter and from there created my private collection. All organic- in my 3 favorites: Shea butter, Cocoa butter and Coconut oil and vitamin E; it’s the number one seller in the line. People began to favor it for their skin and hair usage. Amazing! I never dreamed people would love it so much! I personally needed a better product. My heart’s desire was to do something for my three daughters that would be a lasting legacy for them to enjoy.”
Many lives have been changed by her gentle and loving leadership and hearts touched by her grace and strength.
