March 19, 1989. I had to look up the actual date, but the time itself is easy to remember. I first made a profession of faith on Palm Sunday when I was eight years old. I was baptized the following week on Easter Sunday. Thirty-one years later, I realize I made this decision before I…
006 – Song of Surrender
An artist, a speaker, a writer, and Founder of the Nashville Creative Group – Beth Inglish is all that and so much more. I was really excited to sit down with her to talk about her love of music but also how that transitioned into finding community and learning the art of surrender. Here’s my conversation with my talented friend, Beth Inglish.
What. A. Week. For the Nashvillians who were here during the flood of 2010, our community response to this natural disaster is no surprise. There’s a good reason they call Tennessee the Volunteer State. After an F3 tornado ripped through Germantown, North Nashville, East Nashville, Donelson, Hermitage, and Mt. Juliet, the devastation surrounding our neighborhoods…
005 – Song of Homecoming
Chris Lee and I met as young professionals, both very early on in our careers. You may wonder what a CPA has to do with music, but he’s here to change your mind. We dive into band instruments, competitive dancing, Beck, and a defining moment that turned into a Homecoming.
004 – Song in the Darkness
You know that moment when you meet someone and you just click? I met Sarah Robinson in early 2019 and I was instantly drawn to her big heart and her compassion for people who are struggling. She has a way with words — both spoken and written — that lead you to truths of how seen and loved you truly are.
002 – Song of Joy
I’m really excited to introduce you to two people who have known me my entire life… literally. My parents are a constant source of inspiration for me and, in fact, their story – something they’re going through this very moment – was a source of inspiration for this podcast.
“How’s the temp?” I yelled outside as my husband lit the grill to prep for dinner. “Chilly, but great.” That was all the encouragement I needed to bundle in my housecoat, pour a glass of red, and head outside. 63 degrees and sitting under swaying trees looks a lot different now than it did five…
Starting with a Song
I stopped scrolling when I saw this post. My friend re-posted this and suggested we think about where we started 10 years ago. Sure, the decade realization is enough to make my head spin, but I love how she used the word started. A decade ago, 28-year old Amanda was living in a very different…
Spin the Wheel
I don’t know how therapists do it. Anytime I hear someone spew their problems, I want to shake them and simultaneously point to a list of step-by-step instructions saying, “here’s exactly what you need to do.” I don’t even know if that gut reaction could be swayed with money (probably not. #sorrynotsorry). All that to…
Big Lessons from Little Tomatoes
Summertime has me dipping my toes in the lake, the Enneagram, and learning to become love – all while picking a bounty of tomatoes in my backyard.
