i’ve been invited by our friend to “guest post” every so often. i’m amy and i want to tell you a little bit about me and why i’m here:
what you need to know about me: amy jo, Christ-follower, born and bred nashvillian, lipscomb grad, business owner, animal lover, PTSD sufferer.
what you might like to know about me: liberal, tattooed, vegan, introvert, aries, book addict, writer, vinyl collector, pug obsessed, cat worshiper, coffee addict, opinionated, grateful and doing the best i know how.
i abhor small talk and tend to just want to get to the heart of the matter so i’ll let y’all know what i know: life is hard and sometimes putting one foot in front of the other is all i have. PTSD is an anxiety disorder and i have it in spades. some days are better than others and some days i don’t know how to breathe without reminding myself to do it.
i rely on God first and those select few i trust to get me through. i’m not great at self-care (or even “good” at it) and that’s where daniel comes in. he helps me by listening, giving feedback and “getting me.” he just gets me. he and i are a lot different but we are a lot alike in the ways that matter: we care, we pray, we offer each other friendship. (his lovely wife and daughter are pretty amazing too!)
i hope we can walk this journey of faith, mental illness, forgiveness, growth and life together. thanks for having me!
grace and peace,
