My name is Amanda. The basic facts on me: Nashville resident, oldest child, married to a redhead, former middle school teacher, cheap wine connoisseur, extrovert, meme enthusiast. However, the reason I write a blog isn’t really to make myself interesting. I’d take up unicycling if that were the goal.
The reason I write is because God loves me, and he loves you too. It’s just that accepting his unconditional love, really letting it sink deep to change your identity and thoughts and relationships, is so much harder than it seems. I I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent more of my life caught up in shame and ideas of an angry God than I have really getting to know Him. I know that I want to share the beauty and kindness I’ve seen in Him since I’ve begun to take Him at His word. I want to be honest about how wrong I get it sometimes. I want to be a voice reminding you that there’s hope on the other side of fear. That the truth really does set us free and bring us to life. That God wants to love us in a way that breaks into the places we think are unlovable and carries us into healing. I write because we’re all on that journey, and I want to walk with you.
