God has been leading me to understand what it means to live with Christ at the center, trust in His goodness, discover what matters most, and prioritize my life accordingly. The universal call to holiness shapes my decisions and desire to support others.

about amanda

Married for 20 years, my journey has entailed discovering the beauty of the sacrament over time as we grow alongside each other with all the joys and challenges inherent. As I have learned more about the Catholic vision for marriage, it has helped me to reflect on avenues for growth in virtue as I live out my vocation day to day, moment to moment. 

"Beloved, let us love one another."
(1 John:7)

vocation of marriage

Being a wife and mom has shaped my experiences as an adult. Throughout the different ages and stages, my 6 girls have stretched me and taught me about myself, life, and the beauty of becoming. 

The gift of life. So much gratitude. 


My career in education has included K-12 experiences, with a focus on language and literacy, as well as my current position as a teacher educator. In these roles, I have been able to discover many of my passions and then see connections to the bigger picture of life. Learning to discern when to invest and when to set limits in my career has been a big part of my journey.

Nurturing growth. Maximizing Potential.
