About Me

Welcome to Grace In Our Moments! Are you busy? Stressed out? Desperately in need of grace? You've come to the right place, because I am, too.

My name is Amanda. I'm a pastor's wife, mom to two boys and a Yorkie, writer, registered dental hygienist, and children's pastor. I write both fiction and non-fiction, with a focus on real women finding God's grace, no matter what circumstances they find themselves in.


I grew up in Arkansas and now live in Texas, but I dream of getting to Tennessee one day. I love the simple things in life: horseback riding, getting lost in a good mystery novel, cooking, crime shows, Arkansas Razorback football, and lots of good coffee. On the adventurous side, my bucket list includes white water rafting, rappelling, and my dream trip to Israel.

So, why did I choose Grace In Our Moments? Because I've learned that God is there, in all of our moments. When I'm laughing with my family, when everything is going well, He's there, rejoicing with me. When I'm alone, when I fail Him, when everything is falling apart, He's there, clinging to me with grace that never lets go.

Why do I write and share my heart here? Because on my own I'm nothing. Because I desperately need His grace. Because I can't do this on my own. And because I love sharing what He is teaching me on my own journey to find grace. I hope you'll join me!
