Meet Amanda

Hello, I’m Amanda Medlin. 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. I love to read historical fiction and theology, listen to Ella Fitzgerald, knit, sew, refinish furniture, and drink coffee from pretty mugs. 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 the soil of their hearts.

This blog is a place where I reflect and share about our days. It’s a collection of my thoughts and a small glimpse into the story the Father is writing out on the pages of my life. I hope you will be encouraged and inspired as you journey with me.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
