About Us

No two women are exactly alike, but there are some things about us that are just true. We love deeply. We need each other. We lead. We hold things together. We stress out. We laugh. We give advice. We nurture. We seek answers. We aren’t perfect (and that’s OK).

Here at the LifeWay Women blog, we are women just like you. And we minister to women for the same reasons you do. We pray that our resources, our events, and this blog will be tools used by God to change your life, which will inevitably affect those around you, impacting lives one woman at a time.

This blog is for you! Join this community of women to find out the inside scoop on our authors, products, events, and more. We’re here to support you, too. Whether you need study recommendations, training advice, leadership tools, recipe ideas, or even a good laugh, the LifeWay Women blog is here to help and encourage you. Because we’re all in this together.

We would love to hear from you, so send us a message here!

Chris AdamsChris Adams, Senior Lead Women’s Ministry Specialist
Chris has helped pioneer women’s ministry as we know it today. When she’s not consulting, speaking, and training women’s ministry leaders, you can find her reading or spending time at the beach. Chris has been married to her husband, Pat, for 41 years. Together they have twin daughters, seven grandchildren, and a 7-pound Yorkie named Mo. A self-proclaimed chocolate connoisseur, Chris is famous around the office for her toffee, which she can never seem to bring enough of.




JUN_5500-bwMichelle Hicks, Editorial Project Leader
With a family of 5, Michelle’s “hobbies” consist of middle and high school ball games, school and church programs, college visits, and cooking dinner. Someday, when she has downtime, Michelle will start painting again. Until then, she writes with colored markers or highlighters to feel artsy. When Michelle isn’t busy with one of her three amazing daughters, she loves soaking up the sun, sand, and sea.

JUN_5537-bwPaige Greene, Director, Adult Ministry Live Events
Paige manages a team of event planners who implements some 30 Bible study events each year. Paige travels too much to have a pet, but she loves dogs and is quite the reliable dog sitter when in town. Like a plant, Paige requires regular sun and water and loves to be outside. She is also working on a Master’s in Professional Counseling. In her spare time, Paige is a fun aunt to seven teenage girls.

Mary Margaret Collingsworth, Event Project Coordinator
With a name as long as Mary Margaret Collingsworth, it’s no wonder this girl comes with tons of nicknames. When Mary Margaret isn’t coordinating women’s ministry training events, you can find her watching Florida Gator football, traveling with friends, or sitting on the beach reading a good book. Her other loves includes Mexican food (which she could eat every single day) and chronically harmonizing with whatever is playing on the radio (which happens automatically).



Becky LoydBecky Loyd, Manager, Adult Ministry Marketing
Becky bravely manages all of Adult Ministry Marketing at LifeWay. When she’s not wrangling a rogue group of strategists, writers, and designers, she’s cheering for the LSU Tigers or baking yummy treats. She has two cats – Gumbeaux (who has diabetes – bless his heart) and Dixie. This self-proclaimed pseudo-crafter makes frequent trips to Moldova in Eastern Europe and statshes multiple pairs of shoes under her desk.

JUN_5421-bwLarissa Arnault Roach, Marketing Strategist
Larissa spends her days marketing Bible studies and gets to focus a lot of her time on the LifeWay Women brand. After hours, you can find this newlywed in her little kitchen testing recipes on her husband. She believes Ecclesiastes 2:24-25 are words to live by: “There is nothing better for man than to eat, drink, and enjoy his work. I have seen that even this is from God’s hand, because who can eat and who can enjoy life apart from Him?” Larissa has an affinity for red lipstick and is always up for a new travel adventure.



JUN_5435-bwLinda Denton, Marketing Strategist
Linda is a Marketing Strategist for LifeWay Adult Events, including Living Proof Live, Priscilla Shirer Live, dotMOM, and Marriage Getaways. When she’s not creating marketing plans, this feisty mom of three is working in her yard or sewing something cute (she’s recently picked the hobby back up after a 10-year break). Linda is one of those extremely transparent people—you never have to guess what she’s thinking—and we love that about her. She laughs really loud, she tells it like it is, and she brings so much vibrancy to our lives.
