Hi! I'm Amanda.
I'm a wife and work-at-home mom who loves to help authors, bloggers, and other writers edit and proofread their work. Click here learn more about working with me.
I'm also in a season of learning to more intentionally connect in several key areas of my life. I'd love for you to join me on my blog, so we can learn from and encourage each other along the way! You can also subscribe here.
The latest from the blog
There was a time when life was so overwhelming that it left me exhausted and unfulfilled. There were so many days when I felt like I was running around from one thing to another, but by the end of the day, it didn't feel like I had actually accomplished anything. Have you been there? Those days when you never stopped moving and doing but the mountain of work didn't get any smaller?
Nearly a year ago, I sensed “brave” should be my word for 2018. It felt like a daunting choice then, and truth be told, admitting it to you here still feels a bit scary, a little too vulnerable.
I certainly haven’t mastered bravery.
But when I take off my self-critical glasses, I see that I have grown in bravery this year. I took some important steps forward. I sidled up to decisions that made me uncomfortable, even fearful, and chose to do them anyway.
A couple years ago, I started storing our Christmas books with the lights and garland. Unpacking these books we haven’t seen since last year always feels like a reunion with dear friends. It’s one of our traditions that makes the season feel extra special.
Fall is the season of cozy-making, and is there anything cozier than snuggling up with your little one(s) and a good book? Today, I’m sharing some of my family’s favorite autumn books. Some are specifically about fall; others are simply set among changing leaves and golden grasses.
Let’s jump in!
It will grow. There is room for grace.
What are your growing things right now?
