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 mother, as a follower of Christ, and as a finder and creator of beauty in the everyday. Much like my decorating style, this blog is rather eclectic as I write about motherhood, faith, homeschooling, decorating, crafts and DIY’s.

I love color and creativity, Jane Eyre and Jane Monheit, and a plate of warm chocolate chip cookies before bed. I spend most of my days at home with my three little ones, reading aloud, making messy art, and planting seeds of faith in their hearts. And usually reheating a cup of coffee.

I like to think of this blog as a place where I am writing out the letters of the story of my life. I hope you will be encouraged and inspired as you journey with me. Thank you so much for stopping by!
