Linda Green-Bennett Biography


About Linda Green-Bennett

Linda Green-Bennett is a native Oklahoman who grew up in a small town in Southwest Oklahoma, graduating high school in 1989. Linda married her high school sweetheart, Nik Green, in January 1992 and they have three daughters; Cortni, Brooklyn and Morgyn. Linda and the girls suffered the loss of Nik, an Oklahoma Highway Patrolman, on December 26, 2003, when he was murdered by a meth addict who was manufacturing on the side of a rural County road.

Accepting Christ during a church revival at age eleven, Linda knew that depending on Christ after the loss of Nik was her way to survival.  As a former public educator, she has made it her personal mission to minister to others by sharing God’s love through her testimony, educating about drugs, encouraging others through losses, and serving in church and community.  She has successfully fought for change in state and national legislation and continues to speak to school groups, civic organizations, share her testimony, and lead ladies or youth group conferences. Linda founded a non-profit, STOMP (Standing Together on Meth Prevention), in 2014, and is the retired director of the organization.  She feels that God continues to open doors of ministry for her and she has a burning desire to make a difference in other’s lives by insisting that making good choices is key to living a joyful and healthy life.

 Linda and her girls relocated to Jacksboro, Texas after she met her second love, Dennis Bennett in July 2005. Like Linda, Dennis had lost his first wife to cancer, so she became a second mother to his three children; Carly, Colby, and Cason.  Together, Dennis and Linda became the “Bennett Bunch” to locals.

Unimaginably, this sweet family suffered again when Dennis’s life was taken in a tragic car accident on February 28, 2019.  Linda has been left to face sorrow, be a single parent, and has had to embrace life as ‘widowed' once more.  Through it all, she has allowed The Lord to carry her and her children through these life changing events. She stands on Truth, refuses defeat, and continues to walk in victory through our Savior, Jesus Christ.
