Hi there, I'm Amanda. Welcome!
I've been writing online for 10 years, and just love connecting with women through written and spoken word. I hope your time here leaves you encouraged and full of hope, as you walk the road set before you. I am passionate about seeing women thrive in their roles, feel a part of something bigger than themselves, and accept the gift that is Christ. Because I just don't know how I'd do this life without Him.

I have been married for 17 years to an amazing guy, and am the mama of 8 awesome kids through birth and adoption. Life is never dull, but is often exhausting, yet rewarding. I never imagined for one second that I would be the mom of a large family. Not. One. Second. But here I am. Obviously God's ways are so much higher than mine.
I'm crazy about British television. Obsessed is more accurate. Can we all have a good cry now that Downtown Abbey has ended?
Coconut anything is my favorite.
I love tea and coffee.
I love to own and collect books, though I have a hard time finishing them.
School supplies are one of my love languages. New boxes of crayons especially.
I lived in Alaska for 30 years, and have just moved with my family to North Carolina. So I'm working on my love for all things NC in an attempt to match my love for my home state.
I've recently come on staff at Proverbs 31 Ministries on Lysa TerKeurst's ministry team. It's a dream come true and I'm just loving it.
