I consider myself a “Professional Mother” and a single parent of 3 children under 8. I have a daughter, Emily, born in February 2006, a son, Andy, born in October 2008, and a daughter, Zoe Grace, born May 24th, 2010.
I grew up in the midwest starting out in Sedalia, MO, and I also spent some time in Indianapolis, Indiana. I graduated from high school in Bloomington, Illinois and while I have always had a love for current events, at heart I am a minister. My ministry first began in college when I lead a Bible study for my Delta Zeta Sorority sisters, then became a campus wide Bible study leader for Greek InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for Indiana University. I went on to encourage listeners at stations in Houston, and Washington D.C.
I want to share my story of how God took this pile of ashes of depression and divorce, and turned it into beauty. I enjoy speaking engagements, where I can encourage women to approach motherhood as a profession. My most important ministry is to my family. My family's mission statement is to "Work Hard...Play Hard...to See needs and Meet them...changing the way the world sees God one life at a time."
I am honored to be able to work alongside such talented and hard working broadcasters, and to have the opportunity to encourage and inspire K-LOVE listeners. This is the stuff of dreams! While some little girls brushed their Barbies' hair, I would record my own radio shows with my totally awesome dual deck boombox! So, thanks to my parents for defending me every time a teacher wrote on my report card...Amanda talks too much...and for raising me to work hard and play hard...to love God and serve God...and to let my little light shine!
Waiting For To...
