Blog | Lindsey Smallwood

Lindsey Smallwood is funny and fun, a woman who loves God and knows how to tell a good story. 

A former classroom teacher, Lindsey served in full-time college ministry for years before getting her Master’s in Education. She is now a writer and speaker, mama to three boys and a member of the preaching team at her local church.

As a gifted communicator who loves weaving stories together, Lindsey crafts messages that bring fresh perspectives to timeless truths. Most of all, she likes pointing people to Jesus. Whether you need a guest preacher on a Sunday morning, a retreat speaker or facilitator, an encourager for your Mom’s group or a fresh voice in your college ministry, consider Lindsey.

Lindsey is a clear and engaging communicator. She has a great sense of humor - people are drawn to her and encouraged by her. I always learn from Lindsey.

Lindsey speaks with clarity and humor. She excels at preaching to large gatherings. Students still speak appreciatively of Lindsey’s advice, and I can clearly remember portions of her sermons years after the fact.

Lindsey is one of the most relatable and poignant speakers I've ever heard. She speaks from the heart and delivers a thoughtful message that encourages reflection. Our mom's group is eager to have her back!
