Gaye Lindfors

Regional Director

Gaye Lindfors finds God’s uncommon grace in everyday living. She loves to laugh, and isn’t afraid to poke fun at her own mishaps. From growing up in a small farming community to living in the big city, she loves the stories that came from observing life in the real world. In her blogging and books, and when speaking at conferences, retreats, and women’s events, Gaye delivers humor, inspiration, and hope.

Gaye has the ability to easily relate to the everyday joys and messiness her audiences and readers experience. She helps women develop a deeper faith life while finding God in all of it.

Her successful corporate career includes serving as Senior Vice President for a college president, providing human resources leadership to a team of 11,000 airline employees, and serving as a resource for media outlets on both workplace and faith issues. She has an M.A. in Industrial Relations.

Author of the book God, Girlfriends, & Chocolate, Gaye serves as the Midwest Regional Director for Christian Women in Media and is past-president of the National Speakers Association—MN Chapter.

Gaye loves music, books, Haagen-Dazs ice cream, and laughing out loud until it hurts. She and her husband Steve live in St. Paul, Minnesota.
