About me

this

Hi my name is Amy, I am a daughter of the King, wife to a visionary husband, and mother to 10 children. My life has become sleep-deprived, running with lots of little ones, and downright busy.  But it has been the most fulfilled life that I could have ever imagined. For years of my life, it was a continuous cycle of babies, nursing, changing diapers, household duties, repeat, repeat, repeat.  Sometimes I look back and think, ‘How did I ever survive that part of my life?”  It was a tough time, my husband was working and running the household and taking care of all 10 children was a job that rested mostly on my shoulders.  There was no “me” time.  No time to sit and relax, no blogging time, otherwise I would have started this years ago:).  But it was a good learning time.  I learned how to be a keeper at home and become a Proverbs 31 woman. I started this blog as a way for me to help encourage other mothers who are  a few steps behind me in their seasons of life.  The only way I was able to learn all that I have learned is by looking to older woman for advice.

Titus 2:4-5 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children,  to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

We are  far from being the “perfect family”. We go through life with as many problems as the next person—- ours is just multiplied. Even though we have an endless sink full of dishes, laundry that is never ending, diaper changes all day long, oh and did I mention the decibel level in our household? We wouldn’t have it any other way. With all the extras comes a hardy dose of laughter, never ending fellowship and a lot of love to go around. Even though we live and interact in this fast moving world, we try and live our lives as simple and plain as we can. My aspiration for this blog is to encourage other people. I hope to give you a glimpse into our large family and  how we live a plain lifestyle in this not so plain world.Image00002Married to my best friend for over 21 years. I let the Lord lead my life and that results in a peaceful, organized chaos which I love. I enjoy learning new things, planning, organizing, blogging, cooking, and being out with my family in God’s wonderful creation. If I have an iced hazelnut macchiato–with coconut milk from Starbucks that’s just the icing on the cake. Be blessed as you look around!

May grace and blessings be your path,

Amy

    If you read in the bible its says in Proverbs 18:16.
    “His gifts will make room for him.” The meaning of this in the bible is saying, That god knows you are worth he knows how hard you are working everyday to worship and be happy. And your gifts of promotion, of going higher places getting blessing is coming for you. When you are are sharping your skills in life and you are ready to move up in life religion or in blessing. God knows and there will be room for your gifts always.

    Love your blog. Have you an tips on managing childrens behaviour. I have four children who are gorgeous and good but also obviously have their challenging moments.

    • glad to meet you Diane, no but I need to write one about behavior, I guess my little ones have their moments as well, and I don’t feel like I am an expert lol in time maybe. Be blessed, amy

  6. I too have 4 kids and I thought that was work!! congratulations for showing us the biblical way, ny daughter intends to have 6, what do you think? In these hard economic times all her peers think she is crazy

    • Let em think she is crazy, her and her husband will be more the wiser:) they will know what true happiness really is. We had more babies in the hard economic times and it taught us how to live much more frugally and we loved every minute of it!!!

  7. A bit about me: I am a mama of 3 little ones (4, 2, and 6m) and welcoming more. We have a small farm raising sheep and other animals.

    • very nice to meet you Melinda, how many sheep do you raise? and do you raise them for their fur or for meat? curious? amy

  8. We raise a small flock of heritage soay sheep. We have 9 ewes, 2 rams and just now we are lambing. They are both a meat and wool breed, great for acreages. Soay is a rare breed and is a but of a conservation project raising them. We hope to grow the flock larger.

  9. So glad I found this website. I’m a mother of 2 (10 yr girl and 3 yr boy). A wife, full-time nurse that works nights/weekends/overtime, and I home school my kids. I don’t have a multitude but with the extras in my life, I feel it makes up for it in some way. lol I found this site by looking for a home econ curriculum. I found so much more. Look forward to learning. Thank you for sharing.

  10. Hi Amy – At one point I found a link that you had posted to your family business, I thought I had bookmarked it to come back later but I can’t find it. I think it had an item that I wanted to purchase for my parents upcoming 40th anniversary. Could you direct me to the website? Thank you.
