Writer, mama, musician, teacher, worshiper

West Des Moines, IA


Hey friend!

I'm Lindsey, and I have a passion for words—reading them, writing them, and dumping out 40,000 of them with friends over a coffee. I want to serve and love the women around me, especially those who need to hear they are seen, known, and deeply loved.  

I am married to Carter, my crush from church camp who grew up to be a children's pastor. Together, this heroically patient man and I have Vera and Barrett, two of the most majestic, darling creatures on earth. As a mama of two and three year olds, I revel in the simple pleasures of washing my hair once a week, sneaking dark chocolate so I don't have to share, and occasionally camping out at coffee shops to write while someone else wipes my children’s bottoms. In the evenings you can find me trying my best to make high schoolers laugh as a private voice teacher and choral clinician.

THANK YOU for stopping by, please consider yourself aggressively hugged by me. The good kind where no one feels awkward and we don't let go until we're ready.
