biography

An Indianapolis native and graduate of DePauw University, Amy lives with her husband, three boys and a gaggle of golden retrievers in central Indiana. After writing and editing for her college newspaper, she combined a nursing degree with journalism and creative writing, which led to publishing and editing a wide array of medical and nursing writing and multimedia projects over the past 21 years, a position as director of communications of her church’s children’s ministry, as well as a weekly column for a local newspaper which ran from 2009-2012.  She has been a two-time semi-finalist for the ACFW Genesis awards, and was the winner of the 2011 Women of Faith writing contest.

When she’s not reading or writing, Amy loves spending time with her three sons; spicy lunches and art gallery walks with her  husband; digging in her garden sans gloves; walking her dogs; up-cycling old furniture and junk; photography; and friends.

  4. Your comment, ” More and more I realize the situations which scream, “I can’t” are the ones God steps into and whispers, “I can.” This really moves me in the place I am today. Thank you!
    And of all the posts I went to from @stickyjesus, you mentioned praying mantis. I have seen two in the past month. I haven’t seen any since I was a young girl. They are amazing! Just like our God!

  5. Amy, I also have a copy of The Wounded Heart, which I am working through right now. I know not your situation, but I do know having that books means someone in oyur life is in the same struggle I am right now. As Michael W. Smith sings, Pray for me and I’ll pray for you . . .

  6. Congratulations, Amy, on being named the Grand Prize Winner of the Women of Faith Writing Contest! If I could figure out how to do it, I’d put “Grand Prize Winner” in bold print, larger font, bright greeeeeen!
    Your words will surely touch hearts, minds, and spirits in ways only the Lord put into action.
    WELL DONE by WestBow and Women of Faith for recognizing your faithful and talented cooperation with His plan!
    Best wishes for continued success – Kathleen Brown

  7. Amy, I will miss your weekly column in the Zionsville Times Sentinel. You are an awesome writer and a wonderful person. Sometimes I clip your columns and keep them on my fridge for reference. Now I find myself in a “broken place” and will refer to your blog often to gain some perspective. Thank you for being available to others through your writing talents,’
