Christmastime is typically festive and cozy, merry and bright. But there’s a heavier side of the holidays that many people, unfortunately, know all too well. My guest for today’s episode at The Messy Table is the witty and bighearted Lindsay Torres—who’s bravely shedding some light on her #MeToo story, as well as sharing how she continues to find healing and forgiveness after sexual abuse.
“God takes a mess and makes a masterpiece.” —Lindsay Torres
Lindsay is a mom of two boys, police officer’s wife, pharmaceutical rep, and just a down-to-earth, hilarious, she’ll-have-your-back-no-matter-what type of friend. I can’t imagine the pain she’s waded through over the years, but it’s an honor to witness the mysterious way in which “God takes a mess and makes a masterpiece.”
No matter your story or background, Lindsay’s imperfect journey will remind you who you are and shift your perspective toward the things of God. So grab your coffee, pull up a chair, and join us!

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
‘Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens, “It has come at last— salvation and power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth— the one who accuses them before our God day and night. And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.’ Revelation 12:10-11
