Hi there! I’m Amanda. I’ve been married to the most God-centered, fun, servant-minded man for the past four years. We have a beautiful, three-year-old daughter with an incredibly sweet and curious heart and are currently in the process of pursuing a domestic newborn adoption.
I have my degree in social work and worked at a pro-life pregnancy medical clinic before becoming a mom. My husband and I live in a quaint, small town in mid-Missouri where we are the directors of a thriving campus ministry. This is a full-time job to say the least, but our unique situation allows me to disciple and develop college-age women while still having my daughter with me at home, which I absolutely love.
I believe life is an adventure that should be lived intentionally and am discovering more and more that this is a daily decision, which requires both resolve and conviction. Oh and I’ve also learned that living this way is often way harder than it sounds. It’s all too easy to get so busy and distracted with the “demands” of life and then in turn to lose perspective of what actually has value. This applies most importantly to my pursuit of God but also to things like how I do relationships and manage my home and time. In each new season I’m greatly stretched as I learn what it looks like to be faithful to that which God has called me. After all this is where true, abundant life is found…
