Lindsey Friel is originally from McComb, MS, and graduated from SMCC in 2007. She then moved to Hattiesburg, and while attending school at Southern Miss, became pregnant with her daughter, Lilee Grace. Knowing she needed to provide for her little girl, she entered the workforce in women’s health, where she walked hand in hand with women fighting their toughest battles ever, breast cancer. It was there she found her passion for serving other women.
In 2011, the Lord spoke to her very clearly stating she would speak to thousands of pregnant women. She wrote it down and hid it in her heart not to be thought of again. She went through many struggles as a single mother and gained much understanding of the needs unplanned pregnancies present. Her desire is to be exactly what she, herself, needed in her darkest times.
It wasn’t until recently when she pulled out an old notebook and saw that promise God gave her, written down in black and white. It looks a little different than she assumed it would be back then, but Lindsey now knows exactly what that vision was about and can see how she is walking it out daily. Being a post-abortive woman herself, she knows firsthand the uncertainty these women face. She has walked through the wilderness and come out on the other side, finally finding the Hope that only Jesus Christ gives.
Lindsey attends The Springs Church in Collins, MS where she serves on the Women’s Lead Team. She currently lives in Petal with her husband Chris, and has three children, Daniel, Lilee Grace, and Laney Case.
