I’m Amy, wife to Jason, a marketer of medical products who also happens to be a former minister. We’ve made our acquaintance with the joys and challenges of full-time ministry and know it’s a hard job. My two lively, creative, thoughtful boys keep me on my toes. Somehow we survived 8 years of staying home together 24 hours a day. My oldest is enjoying junior high, and my youngest is now in 5th grade. Yet, it seems like yesterday I was picking Cheerios up off of the floor.
For 9 years, before my duties as a mom, I taught at the elementary school I attended as a child. My fourth grade teacher mentored me my first year. This year I am returning to teaching at a local Christian school.
I spent several years working in women’s ministry both as a volunteer and as part-time staff. I relished my time with fellow moms when I had littles, and enjoyed pouring into the young moms as my own children grew. Most of what I know about leadership I learned during this season.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find yourself nodding and relating to my posts. There is always joy to be found in the middle of life’s mess.
