Hi there! I’m Amanda Nelson, I’m married to my high school sweetheart Danny and I’m the mom to four beautiful children (S, E, Mr. Beren, and Snicklefritz). I’m a child of God, and passionate about glorifying God through our family life. All I have and all I am is thanks to my Creator and Redeemer.
I love the color yellow. My favorite season is fall. I love rainstorms, but not thunder. I love coffee and cheesecake.
I am a homeschool mom, but my children teach me just as much about living as I teach them. I’m trying to treasure every moment. We go on a new adventure in the upstate of South Carolina almost daily, and recently I discovered a secret weapon to help me have adventures and live every moment to its fullest — Plexus. I wrote more about that discovery on a post called “My Secret Weapon”
Why 2 More Talents?
About six years ago when S & E were just toddlers an idea was born during a sermon on Matthew 25:14-30.
I encourage you to read this parable, but the basic lesson that I gleaned from this parable is that God is pleased when we share the gifts He gives us.
It is my desire to share at least one thing I’m thankful for each day. I want to spread hope and joy even if its by sharing my simple everyday musings. It is my hope that by sharing my joy in the ordinary that I will encourage an interactive community. I’ll leave you with my favorite verse, it’s a verse filled with hope and a promise of newness even in an ordinary land.
