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.

The power of prayer.


That's great! I had a high risk pregnancy and I know how awful it is, so I'm so glad you don't have to go through all that now. What a relief! FYI, I did say a little prayer for you when I read your last few blogs.

amber hurd

It stinks that you had to worry all this time over a doctor's mistake, but I am glad it was a mistake. God is good all the time.

Carrie @ Martin Manor

OH my! How could they make you worry and fret like that! I'm so happy that things are going just fine! It's scary to think they could make a mistake like that! Good grief!

I know you are thrilled beyond words! Many more blessings and happiness to you!

Take it easy! :)


Whoop whoop! AWESOME news!! What a blessing. Sometimes God just does that to us to bring us back to Him - to see how we react - where our heart are. I love how you ran to Him....and I'm thinking He does, too. :-)

Michelle Andrews

That is great news, Amanda. I am ecstatic for you and your family!

LindaSue Carter

It's a God thing, Amanda, just like my sweet niece Berea. Never forget that. Never forget to give HIM the credit!

(PS You can keep me in your prayers... still in the hospital from knee replacement on Tuesday...recovery not going well, pain management very difficult...not sure how i'm gonna do it when I get home with my two bouncy kiddos....)


So glad everything looks good. I can't imagine what you were going through!


*breathes huge sigh of relief* now go out and kick butt at BlogherFood girl!!!


Oh good!!! That is wonderful news!!!


wow that's a big mistake on their part, but really good news for you! I'm happy for you! the blogher lineup seems good, too bad its sold out already.

Unplanned Cooking

That is such great news!! I am so relieved for you. And wow, you're speaking at Blogher food? Super impressed.


Wonderful, wondeful news! I am so happy for you. And without doubt, this IS a miracle. What's amazing is that it brought you closer to god and to his goodness. In my pregnancy too, I had a scare for 2 days when my ultoasound tech gave me the wrong impression about a fibroid I had, my husband was away then too, and I was scared for my baby. God spoke to me then and asked me if I could give her up for him...I fought hard against that thought, and then eventually gave in and said "yes Lord, all for you". And that's when I came face to face with God's goodness, and I realised he was going to give us a girl and that she should be called " God's goodness" - we named her Nanma which in our native language means 'goodness'


Wonderful news Amanda, so happy for you!


PTL!!! That is so great!


Hooray!! Congratulations!


Oh what wonderful news! I'm so happy for you and your family!


Praise the Lord!!!! We are so happy for you :)



bridget {bake at 350}

I don't know how I missed this post, but YAY!!! I've been thinking of you and praying for you & baby! Oh, this is wonderful news!

And can I please have your doctor's phone number so I can call and YELL at her? Seriously.

and you'll be SPEAKING at BHF? Now I'm even *more* disappointed that I'm not going. Have a ball! :)

I just read in short succession that you were pregnant, scared and going to a specialist, and, now, completely and utterly, wonderfully fine. This is what comes of reading my google reader only once every couple of weeks.
I am so happy for you, and relieved that you have been spared this particular trial. I've been blessed with divine reassurance for my last two babies that all will be well (after two miscarriages), and it has been the sweetest thing to absolutely know that all will work out.
Enjoy (?) being pregnant, and try not to throw up too much. ;)


Great news...I am happy for you


Kudos to you! I hadn't toghuht of that!
