Mandy has big Texas hair, a big Texas smile and a big Texas heart. Born in Amarillo and raised in Littlefield, Texas, she has spent half her life in the Lonestar State and the other half in the Sunshine State. She dreams though of a one-way ticket to anywhere!
One of Mandy’s passions is serving and loving others. She unlocked this passion on an international mission trip to Guatemala in 2010. Since then she has traveled and served in Nicaragua, Cuba, Israel, the West Bank, Cyprus, Masada, and South Africa.
Her greatest journey is raising two daughters: Alyssa, 20, and Luna, 3. She’s likely the only person you’ll ever meet who had a teenager and a baby in the same year!
Mercy & Meadows is a writing project inspired by a camping and hiking trip to Yellowstone National Park in 2021.
