My name is Amanda Thompson and my husband Andrew and I have five amazing children. The journey to what you see in this picture was not unmet with trials and heartache and tears. It was happy and joyous at times with a wealth of uncertainty. My life is a testimony of what God can and will do if we just trust Him with everything. And I truly mean everything. The hard stuff and the easy stuff. My hope is that our journey and testimony will in turn, encourage you in yours. God is still with me and you every step of the way. 
Love & Blessings,

Amanda
