How do you describe yourself in a nutshell? I wear many hats and could use those to describe myself : stay-at-home Mom, wife, daughter, attorney-by-training, adoptive mom, adoption advocate, control freak, and family photographer. Ultimately, I am a weak human being, dependent on a mighty, powerful God, trying to follow Him in everything I do. I fail all the time. I am constantly on my knees, surrendering my life, over and over again.
My life is NOT what I thought it would be. It is better, far better, because His plans are greater than mine! I praise God for His direction, even when it was temporarily painful, because it has brought the greatest joy and most incredible blessings. Two of those blessings are my amazing husband, Jonathan, and precious daughter, Abigail, both of whom you’ll hear a lot about!
Oh, and I should probably share my name. I’m Amanda and I am so glad you are here today!
