Hi, friend!

Welcome to The Big Family Home! I’m Amy. I like talking with God, candles, magazines, movie nights, the beach, big cities, big ideas, quaint little towns, and pretty much anything new. I am a wife and a mom of six kids who is trying to evolve into the calm, confident person I want to bring to my dinner table every night.

Hi Friend!

Hi Friend!

I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Amy. I’m a mom of six kids and a wife to Joel. I hope you find lots of ideas, grace, and permission to be your own brand of mom as you scroll through my posts.

I really believe that, as moms, we need to be reminded often how much we have to offer to our families. After years of pouring ourselves out for others, we can easily burn out and become disillusioned with our role. Motherhood can feel like a thankless, never-ending cycle of work and interrupted sleep, which is why we need a tribe of other mothers to encourage us and cheer us on when we’re feeling overwhelmed! My hope is to create that on the pages of this blog.

I hope you feel permission to be yourself. God has made you just the way you are, because you are the best kind of mom for your particular family. Whether that means you’re serious or snarky, messy or obsessively clean; you are you because that’s what your family needs! Sometimes you just need a little boost from a mom friend to remember that. Please, please, please sign up on my email list so we can connect and cheer each other on!
