I am Amy. Christian. Wife. Mother. Sister. Daughter. Leader. Friend. Artist. Writer. Perfectionist. Introvert. I grew up in Utah and moved more rural for college where I met my husband and never left! I got married at 18, and surprise! I became a mother the next year! Life has seemed as if it is on fast forward ever since high school graduation. My amazing entrepreneur husband and I now have 3 daughters and I have realized the necessity of self-care. Through talk-therapy I've discovered that anxiety and depression have been constant companions throughout my life but have recently decided they want to call all the shots. After a scary and epic meltdown I gave up on searching for happiness, I gave up on trying so damn hard. I gave up on perfect. I was going to sit with sadness for a while. Every day is a battle inside my own head. I am no expert. I have no answers. No psychology degree. I am a hot mess that is simply documenting my journey to discover, and learn to keep, a peace that can stay with me through the good and bad bits of my life. So as I read and write, cook and clean, change dirty diapers, manage a church program over 10 other women and 30 girls, be a wife to an entrepreneur/rancher, and struggle with depression along with a million other chaotic things I will share my truth with you in hopes that it sparks a desire to find peace in the life you live too.
