• My name is Amy. This little corner of the world wide web is where I scratch out my inklings and ponderments in the fleeting quiet moments of the day. My not-so-quiet moments are spent being a helpmeet to my amazing husband of 16 years, mothering and teaching our two beautiful children (yearning for more), Bible studying, homekeeping, book reading, knitting, sewing, gardening, cooking, guitar learning, errand running, puppy training, health seeking, photo taking, volunteering, and in all of it ~ Christ following.

    As much as I strive to do all these things, and do them well, I fail. Miserably. All the time.

    When I sit overwhelmed, out of juice, and in need of encouragement ~ I pull out my Bible, inhale it's fresh heavenly scent, and know that I am just one day closer.
    One day closer to seeing Jesus' face.
    One day closer to true freedom.
    One day closer to real peace.
    One day closer to His rest.
    One day closer....

  • "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."
    ~ Frederick Douglass~
  • "Remember that children, marriages, and flower garderns reflect the kind of care they get."
    ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.~

    ~Kin Hubbard~
  • "Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted."
    ~Garrison Keillor~
  • "Mothers, please don't let the world rob you of the incredible joy of a life invested in your children. They are your mark on the world. They are your legacy, your testimony, and your contribution to mankind. Don't let some other woman steal your influence. Remember, 'The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.' That saying didn't just show up one day. That proverb is the result of centuries of observation. A mother's influence is unmatched."
    ~Voddie Baucham~
  • “Our Master has never promised us success. He demands obedience. He expects faithfulness. Results are His concern, not ours. And our reputation is of no consequence at all.”
    ~ Amy Carmichael ~
