NEW YEAR, NEW SERIES
Hi, friends! Kayla here, and on behalf of the Upside Down team, we're excited to kick off the new year with a series of in-depth conversastions with each co-host.
First off? Lindsy Wallace. It's her birthday week and we're so stoked to celebrate our resident tea-drinking, Jesus-loving, protesting, homeschooling mama.
She's a force to be reckoned with (in the best of ways) and Kristi and I had a blast talking with her. There's only so much you know about someone from tiny squares on Instagram, and Lindsy is the type of person who, the more you get to know her, the more you want to have coffee (or tea!) with her. She has the most interesting stories, but she's so effortlessly cool she doesn't even really how interesting she is. (And she's probably embarassed that I said that. Sorry, Lindsy. Sorry I'm not sorry!)
Our conversation flew by and I've even found myself listening a second (and okay, third) time, laughing at the way her first date ended in her now-husband getting arrested (believe me, you just have to listen) and shouting "Amen!" as she talks about her faith journey. I was riveted as she shared about how God revealed himself as she was listening to Howard Stern on the radio when the planes hit the twin towers on 9/11. I know you'll feel the same. (And she spent a year living in her VW van so...goals.)
Lindsy is one of my most-interesting friends, and we're all so thankful to get to have her at the table as we discuss what it looks like to take up our crosses and follow Jesus. She works with InnerChange in an incredibly under-resourced part of Miami. She has joined her neighbors to advocate for fair-housing. She's a mom via foster-care adoption, birth, and international adoption. She homeschools. She writes. She's basically someone you want to have on your team, and we're pretty grateful we get to have her on ours!
Take a listen, and let us know what other questions you have for Lindsy. You can also find her on Instagram and Facebook.

One of our awesome listeners (here's looking at you, Ryian!) suggested a private Facebook group for Upside Down listeners, and we are absolutely loving it! We're blown away by the different ways you are humbling loving your communities and families, and we're so thrilled to make connections with other men and women living this Upside Down life.
