“Children have such a unique relationship with God and faith because of their capacity to just believe … and we all have something to gain from experiencing that alongside them,” she said recently.

Lindsay moved to Columbus from Raleigh after she was married in 2007. Her husband, Joe, grew up in the area. They have two children, ages 6 and 5. She attended UNC Asheville and received a degree in environmental science. She is active on the board of Tuesday School and enjoys volunteering in art class at Tryon Elementary. When she does manage to find a little time for herself you can usually find her knitting!
