A hearty welcome. I’m Amy. Come on in and sit with me on our deck, this place of reflection, wind tickling the edges of our hair, hot cuppa in hand. I ponder the tension and intersection of faith, relationships, and nature. I muse about life, creativity, and the fantasy world I wander in my star-tinged imagination. I grasp at the flickers of the eternal that shine out to me, going about the mundane here on our little Midwestern farm, Hearth Ridge. Gratitude and grace, beauty and literature, light and darkness, surround, swirl up around me, my husband, children, and I want to be aware, noticing every moment that I can. My heart is hopeful and I hope yours will be, too.
