Hi there. I’m so glad you stopped by.

My name is Amy. I’m a writer and a reader, a wife and a mom. But first, and foremost, I am a follower of Jesus.

My husband, Jason, is a pastor, and we’ve been in ministry together for more than a decade. In 2012, we planted a church in Ozark, Missouri, and in 2016, we made the heartbreaking decision to close the church.  In 2017, we moved to the Nashville, TN area to serve in a friend’s church. Then in 2019, the Lord opened a door for us to pastor again, in Vermillion, South Dakota at Cornerstone Church.

I’ve been homeschooling my two sons, Caleb and Garrett, since 2016. We never expected to be a homeschooling family, but when I felt like God asked me to pull my oldest son out of public school and teach him at home, I obeyed, and it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

I’ve always loved writing as a way to work out my thoughts, and this blog is a place for me to share things on my heart–things I’m learning about the Lord, about raising my children to serve him, about how to build a healthy marriage, and anything else that that really matters to me. My writing has also been featured on (in)courage, The Mighty, The Grace Mask, Eurasia Community and in the quarterly devotional, God’s Word for Today (published by GPH).

Thanks for stopping by–I hope something here ministers to your heart.
