Amy is a Cincinnati native. She met her husband in high school, and married young at the ripe age of 21. Teaching has always been one of her passions, so she began teaching 4th graders right out of college. Starting a family earlier than she may have expected, Amy embraced the gift of staying home for 10 years. During that time, Amy and her husband Dan, adopted their sweet daughter Anabel from Guatemala...a tale of learning to wait on God's timing and provision. Bringing Anabel home to 3 big brothers began the adventure of a noisy, energy-filled house with lots to learn about parenting with a balance of structure and grace. After her stay at home mom season, Amy re-entered the teaching world. She continues to learn that the many spheres of work-life balance can all be lumped under the umbrella of "Worship and Obedience"...It beautifully blurs into one. Amy loves colorful food, coffee with friends, being outside, and playing music with family.
