Meet Amanda

I am a wife to a farmer and a mother of three. I spend some days lecturing on everything psychology, and some days at home in my sweats, drinking too much coffee, dreaming of more time to read and write.

I’m really a hot mess, navigating life while seeking His face and direction.

I am passionate about how God saved my life and saved my marriage. Because of His grace for us, I am also passionate about extending that grace to others. I mess up every day. But thankfully, God loves me every day, and covers over my faults. He makes me beautiful. And He does the same for you.

I am obediently following God’s calling in my life to share how good He is. I am inspired by the beautiful people who are in love with Jesus and who desire to know God more.

I pray that what I share on this site will give you encouragement for where you are today.

I attend the Church of the Nazarene with my family, and this is what I believe:

I believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). I believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.

I believe man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally incapable of coming back to a right relationship with God by his own effort.

I believe the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places her faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for her sin.

I believe every Christ follower should live for Christ and not for herself. By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Spirit, every believer should mature and become conformed to the image of Christ. I believe it is the Holy Spirit that fills and empowers us to live a life conformed to Christ’s image.

I believe the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and through love, making Him known to a lost world.

Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,  was crucified, died, and was buried. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, and holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sings, resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
