Amanda on a Mission

Here I sit picking up my pen...ahem my keyboard again. To start this blogging venture one five or so times again. If you look back this isn't the first time I've started again. I truly hope it isn't my last. This time I come at it with a different heart. I don't want to blog to gain popularity or status, I simply want to share my story.

I've been a Christian since I was 8 years old. I grew up in church and rarely missed a Sunday. I'm now 30 and I really thought I would be good and settled in my faith by now. But I'm not. I'm truly still a toddler for God. I'm just beginning to gather my feet beneath me and walk with my Father daily. This is scary and awesome all at the same time. This year I've felt a tug on my heart to change. Maybe it's turning 30 and maybe it's having my first child but I feel God calling me to change myself from the inside out.

I feel I have spent my life conforming to this world. Living my life freely to do and go as I please. I was in control. I did my Sunday duty but I didn't listen to God and His plan for my life. By His wonderful and amazing grace He got me to a GREAT place, but I know I've been missing out on so much.

So here I am now. Seeking God with my whole heart and journaling it here. I have an amazing life. A wonderful husband who loves me good, bad, ugly and in between. I have a beautiful step-daughter who adores me and it my little partner in crime. God has also blessed me with my own daughter who is a wild, wonderful mess of fun. I'm so grateful to Him for my blessings but I can here his voice saying I am made for more.

So I begin my journey seeking Him in what I do. My goals for this transformation are:
-seek him first in everything I do
-to love better and more
-to be a better servant aka wife and mother
-to take care of my temple aka weight loss

I hope you stay with me through this journey. I will share all about my goals and God's glorious work within and around me.
