Hi, I’m Amy! You may know me from a couple other blogs such as Saving with Amy or Pennywise Cook. I’ve been blogging for 8 years. I married my high school sweetheart 10 years ago and we have been together for a total of 13 years. We have 2 spunky, busy, adorable, blond and curly-headed daughters who don’t leave me hardly any moments of quiet but I love each and every moment.
When I’m not spending time with all of them, you can find me creating something, DIYing something, singing on the worship team at church, or just being active in some way or another.
My ideal day would be a warm, sunny day with a latte in hand just perusing a flea market or yard sale.
I’ve been known to help others save money, to put together frugal meals, and to create cheap DIY projects but there is a lot more to me than that. I’m also quite passionate about Jesus and how He rescued me. I have a testimony to share in God’s timing. The Lord has blessed me with blogging as a tool. Not only as an outlet to be vulnerable, but also to be brave. God is doing big things in my life right now and I want to continue to grow and acknowledge and praise Him for every one of them! Sometimes I don’t understand. Sometimes I grumble. And sometimes I’m put in my place by a God that is sovereign in His amazing love. And let’s talk about His grace. What! It’s overwhelming.
I want anyone that reads this blog to know that there is a Jesus who loves them. That He is really pretty cool and that God has got an amazing plan for you.
You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
– Isaiah 26:3
