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 now been married 11 years and have two boys, Jack (6) and Aidan (4), and our sweet little Kate, born November 2013.


It is my desire to live with intention 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 – whatever projects I am into or the things that are on my heart.

I love authenticity, color and creativity, old books, coffee in pretty mugs, keeping my hands busy making and my mind busy learning. Most of my days are spent at home with my three little ones where I do my best to nurture them and plant seeds of faith in their hearts while we learn and create together.

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!
