Hi, I’m so glad you’re here. Let me first introduce myself and my family. I’m Amy J. Bennett. I’m a 36 year old working mom of two daughters and one son.
I married my high school sweetheart Scott 16 years ago. I graduated from college with a Computer Science degree 2 years later and have since been working with a large bank in Charlotte, NC as a developer. I’m lucky enough that I get to work from home several days a week. Scott began his dream job as a State Trooper 11 years ago.
We are in a suburb of Charlotte just inside South Carolina called Fort Mill where we both grew up raising our own family.
Emma is our first daughter. She’s our creative care-taker.
Lexi is our second daughter–the one that keeps us on our toes laughing.
Our son is Jac0b. We adopted Jac0b in August 2014. He is our active, generous boy.
And I guess you may as well meet the 4-legged family members. Tucker is our 3 year old lab that creates enough drama he could probably have his own blog.
Our newest addition is my baby Bella. I spoil her. A lot.
Now that you’ve met my family, let me introduce you to this blog.
I started blogging in 2002 when I was pregnant with our first daughter Emma. In fact, you might have passed through my old blog Permission to Peruse in the past. In the Spring of 2013, I moved to this new home.
In short, this is a lifestyle blog written by a Christian mom in the Southern suburbs. One of my favorite things to do is sit with friends over coffee at Starbucks right around the corner. Often, these posts are just what we’d talk about if we did the same. So why do I share it in print and in public? Well, I have a feeling we go through a lot of the same things. I need to hear a “me too” more often than I’d like to admit and I’m sure you do too. I’m hoping as I reflect on life, we both can grow together.
In 2015, I launched the Feathers podcast.
Feathers was birthed out of our adoption story. You can read our “Feather Story” over here and then read about the birth of the podcast here. Feathers is all about faith stories. Each week I interview a guest who has either had to take a leap of faith to obey God’s direction or who has maintained faith through a struggle. Each week we are encouraged and inspired to take our own flights of faith.
