This month I am revisiting what I challenged myself to do last year…take one photo of my children each day for the month of February and post them here in black & white. I’ve gained so much inspiration from other photographers who are also Mommies, and I hope you will join me and you will […]

He has a box of his own toys at our house, blocks that the big kids set up for him so he can knock them down. Teething rings. An odd looking cup that he carries around and puts a play spoon into. Usually it is just he and I in the afternoons his mama is […]

  • Linda Mae Churchill - I so love reading your blog. You have beautiful photos and inspiring words. Let God use you to encourage others, especially those you are not in direct contact with. God has given you this desire to write and so just do it! Let the words flow through you whatever they might be. Be honest and people will continue to read, be awestruck and inspired. Keep it up Amy. I will continue reading. <3ReplyCancel

  • Juanita - Amy, I SO look forward to each and every one of your posts! You are a fantastic friend, a wonderful example and I value your honesty. How many of us feel exactly this way and yet are afraid to voice it…because of how we will be perceived…because we might shatter an image that we work so hard to create…because…well there are a thousand reasons. I am working on this myself and I never would have thought this was a struggle for you and yet that gives me hope! We have so much to be thankful for and we have a hope, that so many don’t have, but the truth is, this is a daily struggle. If only we could see ourselves as He truly sees us, as an amazing work of art, that He put thought into and lovingly created. I truly am praying for that revelation, not just as head knowledge, but to REALLY know it in my heart…I will pray it for you too. Love you friend!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah - You have so much to give, so much to say! And so do I! I love this post Amy, well done!!! <3 you!!!ReplyCancel

  • Amy - Thank you for responding!! I love hearing your hearts as well. I think it is even more so for stay at home moms. Bind together….follow the Lord’s leading…and obey when He says to be real. That is what my goal is right now.ReplyCancel
