Meet Lindsay Lammers

I was very fortunate to grow up in a Christian home and went to a Christian school through elementary school. I asked Jesus into my heart when I was in Kindergarten. I was in a Bible study with the same girls from 5th grade through senior year. I always had believers around me and it made it “easy” to be a Christian and to follow Jesus in the only way I knew how.

When I was 16, I was in a car accident that resulted in heart surgery during my junior year of high school and again my freshman year of college. As soon as I learned the severity of my condition I changed the way I was living. I still had my group of believers and community that supported me but I also was seeking a life outside of Jesus. I look back and I see countless times that the Lord protected me and worked in my life in ways I didn’t know I needed or wanted. He remained constant even when I didn’t seek him first. A friend encouraged me to give thanks, and seeking God with a thankful heart changed everything. I stopped making excuses for my actions and sought forgiveness and healing for the ways I ran from Jesus.

My renewed pursuit of Jesus has continued to grow and anchor me after college and in marriage. In 2016, my husband and I started our infertility journey, culminating with a beautiful baby girl in February 2019. At the beginning of this year, 2020, we implanted our second IVF embryo and had a miscarriage in March. Going through loss during COVID was lonely and overwhelming. God designed us for community and to share our joys and sorrows with others. This journey has been long and painful but I have gained more than I could ever ask for along the way. The grief has brought me to my knees again and again but I now have a more intimate relationship with the Lord, my husband, Kevin and those who have supported and loved us the entire way.

We implanted another frozen embryo in June and I am now pregnant. I need Jesus every single day all day to not live in the fear of loss. I know that loss is possible but that isn’t my truth for today. I’m fighting fear with the truth of who God is and His word. My prayer throughout our journey has been that others would find hope and see Christ at the center of our story. I will continue to put my hope in him and the confidence of his promises for me.
