Who Am I?

  • My life as a wife, mother, and child of God. I can tell a good joke, but only at my own expense. I can tell ya how to parent, but only by first failing. And I can tell you how to get to Heaven, but you gotta get there on your own.

He & Me + 3

I loved hearing your answers. You are adorable.


You are toooo cute and that was a ton of fun!

Great interview! I too struggle with consistency when it comes to parenting. I think we all do!

Thanks for sharing this with us!


Fun to see you "in person" again! Give me a shout next time you head up to Fargo!


Amanda, I had such a good time with you yesterday!
And stop with all the "excuses." You're adorable just as you are.
See you tonight!


Shut up! Love it.
And you look so pretty without make-up and hair done. Me on the other would make you cringe.


You did great and look wonderful (but you're right I couldn't tell your eyes were blue, must've been the lighting). I think it's natural to be afraid of who we really are because most people are not faced with ourselves on a regular basis. I don't like the way my voice sounds when I hear it recorded, bleh! But, and I know you already know this, God isn't capable of creating anything ugly (and that goes for me and my little problems listening to myself) so quite talking negatively about HIS creation.

Besides, you know we all think you're cute already so who you tryin' to fool anyway?


Just for all you "I am mommy" followers: I have known Amanda for around 10 years. Her husband's family and my husband's family are very close friends. Just so you know, yes Amanda is for real! She is ALWAYS this kind, generous, sweet and CREATIVE. Many years ago, my husband and I needed to be in the cities early one morning so Chad and Amanda were gracious enough to let us stay at their house the night before. We got in late and Amanda was already in bed, I don't even think she had children yet. Anyways, on our bed in the guest room was a cute antiqued tray with sides, with bath towels rolled for each of us, a little basket of goodies (hotel shampoo and conditioner, homemade soap from somewhere, and other toiletries). The nicest was a handmade card apologizing for needing to go to bed at a normal time, and welcoming us to her home and telling us to make ourselves at home. Also included was where the orange juice in the fridge was and some pastries on the counter. I still have that card and was so warmed by a simple yet WONDERFUL gesture. I love that what you see is what you get with Amanda and love that I know she's a part of my life! Thanks!


I liked it..didn't notice the fidgeting at all! You looked very natural in front of the camera. Your genuine sweetness comes right through!! I will be at the Mom's event tonight in B'ville (where I grew up by the way). Looking forward to it!


Loved it! And I decided I'm your favorite ;) Army wife who also is living in Germany native Kansan who's been reading you since the days of AOL J'Land! hehe! (Tried covering all!) Oh and I really loved the comment from your real life friend Angie! Soooooooooo sweet!


I HAD to watch this with Maya. She (and Dane) were very enamoured with the video. It was GREAT! And you are COMPLETELY and TOTALLY who you are in your blog. I LOVE it. I will have a post all about our little get together soon (as soon as we get a picture together! Good Grief! What were we thinking, or NOT thinking?)
Seriously, I can't tell you how excited I am to get to know you! OH, and I checked out the blue cake you took to the Andersons. I LOVE it!


That was very nice, you should make a Q & A vlog a regular event on your blog :)

So much fun to see this side of you! i can tell that you are the 'real deal'. Thanks for sharing Jesus in the video!!



HEhee!! I always like seeing video clips of you, Amanda! You seem like the exact kinda person I could hang out all day with: GENUINE.

And I just saw in your LinkWithin below about how you did a post featuring some of your best commenters. Well, dern-it-all if I didn't have a draft going of the same thing right now, thinking I was totally original in my idea! I think - we think alike, sista!! =-D Great minds. Great minds INDEED!!! We need to hang out sometime. It's not that far, right?


Enjoyed "meeting" you and learning a little more about you from this interview (and from Angie!). Your blue eyes may not have come through clearly but your heart of gold certainly did. You are truly a wonderful and talented person. As for struggling with some parenting challenges...we all have at one time or another. Trust in God and in your instincts and as long as the love is consistent, all will work out.


Bravo! Awesome interview, and I love your accent!


I loved this interview! You did a great job!

Love love love love you.



Great interview! I have a quick question though...what settings do you use on your camera when you take shots of your children? I would love to know!

Thank you for any information :-)

What a great interview! Great job. I'm sure it was so much fun to meet face to face!


loved seeing you in real life! everytime I have a comment from you I get excited and tell my husband, "AMANDA commented today!" haha. seriously thanks for taking the time to read our blog and leave comments. It's always nice to open up the blog and see that people have commented. I really enjoy your blog!


I came over from Karen's blog. You looked great and it was a wonderful interview! Looks like you and Karen had a great time together!
