We know how important the engaged season is.
We know how crucial it is to prepare well for marriage.

We have spent the past 12 years working with engaged couples in a variety of different avenues: planning weddings, leading premarital counseling sessions, having engaged couples over to our house every week and more. 

We believe that Marriage > Wedding. We know it can be hard to find quality premarital materials, which is why we created The Engaged Life. It has everything you need to focus on your marriage during your engaged season. 

we are so glad you are here!

a little about amanda...

I love weddings and everything that goes along with weddings. Which includes marriage. I am passionate about my own marriage and encouraging others in theirs. I love being a mom to my 6 amazing kids and absolutely love creating resources to help encourage engaged couples.

A few random things about me:
1. I have planned close to 1,000 weddings over the course of 15 years.
2. I have been a guest on 6 podcasts. 
3. I have survived postpartum psychosis.
4. I have written a YouVersion Plan called "Hope for the Postpartum Mom"
5. I love taking each of my kids out on dates for some 1-on-1 time.  

I look forward to getting to know you!

HEAR OUR HEARTS BEHIND WHY WE CREATED THE ENGAGED EVENT

WEDDING = ONE DAY
MARRIAGE = A LIFETIME

Did you know that the average engaged couple spends anywhere from 6-18 months planning their wedding and less than 6 weeks planning their marriage. Why would you spend more time planning something that lasts one day, versus something that lasts a lifetime. 

We want to help you prepare well. We don't want you to waste your engaged season. We want you to have a marriage that is more beautiful than your wedding. 

And our resources can help you. 

Hope for the postpartum mom
