Hi, I’m Amanda. Welcome to my blog.

I’m a homeschooling mama to 3, in love with the boy who used to sit behind me in the 6th grade. Phillip and I have been married 11 years and have three kids: Jack (6), Aidan (4), and our sweet little Kate (1).


It is my passion to live with authenticity, intention, and grace in every area of my life ~ especially as a wife and mother, as a follower of Christ, and as a finder and creator of beauty in the everyday.

I’m an old, creative soul who loves to read the classics, knit, sew, paint furniture, and I am currently learning calligraphy. Most days you will find me at home with my little ones, reading aloud and leading messy art projects, while gently tending to the soil of their hearts.

My best days are the ones where I find myself living at the intersection of faith, motherhood, and creativity, and I love to write about them here on the blog.

I hope you will be encouraged and inspired as you journey with me. Thank you so much for stopping by!
