I’m Amanda and I don’t know what I’m doing half the time.
I share a house with 4 kids, 1 husband, 2 dogs and lots of caffeine. I roast my own coffee beans (sometimes) and I can drink the black gift from Jesus all day, everyday. I love God, and I try to always be open for Him to mold me and use me, so to the outside world, I might come across as inconsistent. But they’ll get over it. I’ve had different kinds of jobs and I regularly take classes to learn new skills. Learning is most of the fun for me.
I’m adopted and I’ve struggled with suicidal thoughts and feelings of low self-worth, but God continues to work on that and I believe He has good plans for me. I believe He values me and loves me.
I try to be content in whatever circumstances with which I’m confronted. My philosophy is that once you’ve been completely rejected by the family who is supposed to love you, and then accepted into an eternal family that will always love you, the rest doesn’t really matter. I can survive anything.
God makes me strong. Whatever I do, I just want to live this life for Him. And I’m grateful He never lets me run out of coffee.
