My name is Amy, which means be•loved: dearly loved : dear to the heart.
It is nearly destructive for me to not feed a creative outlet. When I am not experimenting in the kitchen or embarrassing my two teens,. I have been known to decorate and spray paint anything that stays still. I also pull weeds in the backyard in my humble attempt to replicate my grandmother’s rose garden.
A transplanted northern girl, I call Augusta, GA home. I still miss the snow but tall backyard pines and the southern charm of the folks has compensated. I share life with a grace-filled husband, Troy. Our daughter Shelby (20) is a singer, poet, and fashionable vintage soul and her brother Mitchell (17) is a guitar-playing, wickedly funny fisherman. I had no idea that being a mom could teach me so very much about myself.
Ovarian cancer refocused my faith when I was 29.
I’ve never been the same, and for that I’m grateful.
I am The Co-Founder of The Lydia Project. This is where God wove my story of cancer into a ministry. Hundreds of Lydia volunteers now serve thousands of women and their families each year, providing spiritual, emotional, and financial support. I believe God usese the valleys in our lives to minister, I’ve seen it up close.
Writing has always been my refuge. My first coauthored book “A God Of All Seasons” released in August, 2016. I have also written for The High Calling, (In)Courage, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and locally as a guest columnist with The Columbia County News Times. I’ve been blessed to work with companies like Goodwill Industries and Vi Bella Jewelry, providing marketing and public relations strategies, to further their international missions and impact.
I now work with clients, assisting with storytelling, strategy and marketing. as the owner of Blue Jean Communications. I also speak at conferences and retreats on a variety of topics.
Thanks for walking a bit of this cobbled path with me. Our conversations remind me that I am “Beloved”.
Amy (Blue Jean Girl)
