Amanda Bennett lives just outside of Nashville, TN with her wonderful husband of 13 years, her four year old daughter and her baby boy (who is just over a month old). She is a people-loving introvert (or ambivert). She loves Jesus, good black coffee, 1980s and early 90s nostalgia, and personality typing tests. Her background is in fundraising for nonprofit organizations. She worked for 12 years full time before she had my daughter in February 2016. Now she stays at home with her kids and has a motherhood podcast called Gotcha Mama.
