welcome

You've found a space that's all about ​honoring who you were created to be and living it to the fullest.

I firmly believe that every one of us is a unique creation, full of dignity, worthy of love, and called to serve. But too many of the forces in our culture suggest that our value comes from what we accomplish, that we ourselves are not enough, and that we are responsible only to ourselves. Through my vocation as a wife and mother and my calling as a writer, editor, and speaker, I hope to counter this destructive mentality and offer a life-giving alternative.

intro

seen and heard on

don't forget to say thank you:

If there's anything I've learned in my vocation as a mother, it's that being a mom does not negate my being a child of God. When I started to reimagine the phrases I said to my kids over and over (and over) each day as words from God my Father to me, His beloved daughter, I joyfully rediscovered my true identity. Each (short!) chapter examines one of these phrases, ending with reflection questions, a prayer, and a saint to call on for further intercession. A great solo read and an excellent selection for a book club!

Things I Never imagined I’d Do,
But That Turned Out Great

THe Podcast

Quote Me with Lindsay Schlegel celebrates the power of words to lead us to truth, beauty, and goodness. In short conversations about my guests' favorite quotes, I seek to glorify God and brighten your day.

Tune in to a new episode every Tuesday.

In a culture where Catholics can be tempted to believe that it is a case of either, or—either I can be a person of mature faith or I can simply go after the good things of this world—Lindsay Schlegel does not only share how both are attainable, but speaks from her own experiences of balancing her life in Christ with the call to marriage, motherhood and discipleship. Listening to Lindsay is encouraging, practical, and edifying.

I've had the pleasure of hearing Lindsay speak a number of times on various topics, and not only does she speak the truth in love and have some excellent insights, but she has the ability to connect with her audience because she speaks from the heart. A wonderful woman who lives out her faith with her husband and children in the day-to-day grind which is family life. In the midst of the craziness that family life brings, she models beautifully the gift of joy, which emanates from a life centered on Christ.

During Lindsay's talk, I could relate to so many of her stories and struggles (many with mutual laughter!) on her journey of being a mother and a daughter of God. I left with a new found energy, realizing we, as mothers, are not alone as we nurture the Catholic faith in our children and ourselves. Lindsay was funny, engaging, and very relatable. I am so glad I attended her talk and thankful to have her book to strengthen me as a mother and a woman!

Lindsay was a wonderful speaker for our Family Catechesis parents. Her message was relatable, humorous and down to earth, just what we need in faith formation these days.

Lindsay spoke at our Advent Women’s Breakfast. She made herself very available and was easy to communicate with about the details of our event. This was very impressive being she was nearly due with her fourth child! Her presentation was extremely knowledgeable about the topic we asked her to present. She is an original thinker and has many insights about the teachings of the Catholic Church. Her message was uplifting and affirming, yet gently challenging us to live fully in our walk with Our Lord!

There's no substitute for the shared experience of a conversation or presentation. Whether it's live with a group of hundreds or an intimate cross-country video conference, I am always grateful for the opportunity to connect with other women in real time.

For parents, I speak on "Being the Change You Wish to See in Your Home," and for women, I speak on "Having It 'All' as an Authentic Catholic Woman." 

I'm also happy to tailor a presentation to your group's needs.
