All About Amy


This is a random box of my stuff.  I just grabbed stuff near my night stand that I thought represented me. (and of course the cat had to investigate)

I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a mentor, a volunteer, a geek and a woman of faith just to mention a few of the boxes I am in.  I have found I am most comfortable in my jeans and a T-shirt wearing ratty old flip flops.  I do have a pair of black flip flops that are my "church flip flops" that I try to keep in better condition.  I am a mom like all others that would like to be able to do it all, but I have thoroughly accepted that I cannot.  I have spent years as an advisor to middle and high school aged young people but am still completely unprepared for my own children to be adolescents.  I think that so much in life could be solved by responding and acting with love, and I think I need to take my own advice.  I am very good at creating and encouraging community.  Long ago I helped my husband lead recreation at several Presbyterian youth events and we have continued to serve in leadership roles at youth events.  Things I love: family, laughing, Disney, music, games of all kinds, the beach, the mountains, encouraging other people.

Hi Amy,
Is there an email contact I can get for you? I wanted to send you something that you might be interested in and your readers might as well.
