Hi, I’m Amanda… a stay-at-home mom & military wife. My goal at this point in my life is to be a supportive & loving wife, teach my children about our beautiful Catholic faith, and most importantly keep everyone alive while doing it! I also a fiery drive and hunger to immerse myself in everything about being Catholic, I just can’t seem to get enough so I keep going, taking in everything I possibly can in my lifetime!
Living the military life can be a bit crazy at times but I am so lucky to have a wonderful family, amazing friends, and a supportive community. Without these things, I’m positive this experience would be much harder! My husband is a wonderful man who, although away a lot, always makes us feel loved and appreciated. We use our time apart to work on ourselves in every aspect of life and to rekindle some of the romance, that is so easily lost while living your day-to-day life at home, by writing letters and remembering all the things that are important to us and our relationship.
I taught elementary school for 5 years before leaving my profession to stay home with my first born. It was a very difficult transition for me and the first few years were quite hard, to say the least. Thankfully with so much support and my new interest in my Catholic faith, I was lead to a place where I am quite happy and fulfilled in my newest profession (mommy) even though it wasn’t something I ever had a strong desire for as a young woman.
So here I am, 8 years of marriage to my best friend & soul mate, a mommy of two children who keep me on my toes morning, noon, & night, and just running (ok more like jogging, or even walking) through life blindly and groping for anything to help me survive today and be a better person tomorrow!
XOXO, Amanda Joy
