Hi there. I’m Amanda.
And honestly? I’m just me. I love Jesus, first and foremost. His joy fills my soul and He is the only reason I am who I am and I do what I do.
I’m a writer, a thinker, a dreamer, an adventurer.
I love music – singing, playing guitar, ukulele, and piano, and blasting music in my headphones.
I like books. I like knowledge. I like accomplishment, and perseverance, and goals.
I’m a coffee drinker, a chocolate lover, and I’m rather fond of pizza.
I’m a student, a sister, a daughter, a friend, and sometimes just that blonde girl you’ll meet who wants to exchange soul-stories with you, and hear what God is doing in your life.
I’m a highly extroverted introvert, I love people, and I want to give people hope — that same hope that’s treated as nonexistent by the fallen world we live in.
And what I get to do here, on this blog, it absolutely floors me.
I love being able to use my words to encourage, to inspire, to lift people up, to share a little slice of my soul. To help others understand the grace that impacts my life so prevalently on a day-to-day basis, the love of Jesus that gives me a reason to live, to write, to sing.
There are many layers to who I am. I’m serious, I’m ridiculous, I’m emotional, I’m passionate, I’m visionary. But I want you to know that I care about you.
No matter what you’re going through, no matter what messy battles you’re fighting right now, I want you to know that you’re not alone. I want you to know that Christ is the One who makes you good enough. I want you to know that you can have so much joy, right where you are, because of this Jesus who died for YOU.
I originally thought this blog would be all about me. But it isn’t, and I don’t want it to be.
This blog is about all of us, what we face, and the One who has overcome all of it.
It’s about how we can live the Christian life in freedom, and grace, and radical joy.
It’s about hope, and developing a deep friendship with God and allowing Him to work in our lives because of what He’s done for us.
Thanks for coming along for the ride!
