My name is Amanda. I’m a 20-something transitional deacon in the Episcopal Church. I currently work as a part of the Reimagining Curacies Program in the Diocese of North Carolina.
I remain a loyal English major, and have an undying love for Virginia Woolf and the world of Sherlockian adaptations. My friends often call me with questions about how to find things in the library, and I’ve probably maxed out the book limit on my library card. Occasionally, I design websites, graphics, consult on church communications, and do other such online work. When not working or writing something, you’ll probably find me baking something delicious, hiking, or attempting to teach myself to paint.
This blog was started in 2008 when I was just a wee thing, and has grown to be an archive of my life journey. I hope that you’ll stick around and walk a while with me, and if you’re also a blogger, I look forward to doing the same for you!
Finally, no about-Amanda page is complete without a photo of this goofball, who is my favorite person in the world. Opal enjoys opening doors, cuddle sessions, and snoozing in the sunlight. She particularly like catnip mice, ear scratches, and disrupting my Zoom meetings. You can follow her on Instagram at opal_la_chatte.
