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!
