Hey There! I’m Amy.

I’m passionate about educating about spiritual abuse and advocating for those who have been hurt in faith communities. My husband’s experience working for a Christian organization brought us face to face with spiritual abuse. You can read about that here. I also occasionally write articles that encourage women in their Christian faith and share what I’m learning about raising my kids, following Jesus and making life simple, connected, and meaningful.

If any of that grabs your attention, you can subscribe here and you’ll get my posts and an occasional email from me!

My articles have been featured in The Huffington Post, Scary Mommy, For Every Mom, and at Christine Chappell’s page.

I’m a follower of Jesus so you’ll see posts about faith and how I love the local church but still feel like quitting sometimes. I’m a mom of three kids. Some of them struggle with mental health issues. I have learned a lot during the last several years about ADHD and OCD and I share some of that here.

  1. I start to describe myself as a “child of God”. At least I tell myself that is the most important identification I have. Some times I get overwhelmed in the things I do that seem to define me. some of the things I do I would not want to define me. You are a child of God and also a very good wife and mother- as well as an exceptional daughter. You are precious and loved. Keep up the great walk! I love you!

  2. Hello! My husband and I will soon be moving to Nashville. I originally found your blog when he applied last summer to work for Dave Ramsey. But God had other plans and that door was closed, we were fine with it and moved on.Less than a year later and we’re moving there after all!
