Motherhood

Introduce yourself as if we were on a coffee date! Tell us about yourself. Would you be drinking coffee or tea? I would definitely grab a cup of coffee and say, Hey! I’m Amy! I was born and raised in Memphis, TN and now live in a tiny town near there with my husband Stephen […]

“This is a story that revealed the Father’s goodness to us all:  My baby belly was small and I was just beginning to show. I was halfway through this pregnancy, at only 21 weeks when my water bag broke. I didn’t even know that was something that happened, let alone what it actually meant. So, […]

“I just want to quit.” -me (and most likely you)

From Peer to Fear I remember sitting in my ninth grade Sunday school class hearing about peer pressure. The example was someone standing on a chair trying to pull another friend up onto the chair with them. No matter how hard she tried, it was much easier for the friend on the ground to pull […]

There’s probably a woman out there who loves folding laundry and scrubbing dirty dishes, and I am not that woman. I don’t naturally love cleaning and picking up every single day. With me, my two year old and my husband under one roof, our home gets messy in the blink of an eye. It sometimes […]

It is no surprise that post birth our bodies change drastically. Along with that physical change comes an added spiritual change. Raising children is no small task. It has been argued that motherhood is by far one of the most important tasks on earth, because we as mothers are shaping the future leaders of the next generation! In my own heart I carry a deep conviction that these days with my little boy are meant for greater purposes— for kingdom purposes. But in order to truly grasp that and live it out, I have to put my “mom pants” on. Let me explain.
