Welcome to Thistle Hill!
Where life happens….
Hello and welcome to my small space on the wonderful world web. My name is Amanda.
Writing has always been a passion of mine. It has helped me sift through life. I have been able to sort out and piece together solutions to all the ups, downs, twists and turns that life has thrown. I’m hopeful that through this blog I will be able to connect with others.
Thank you for stopping by.
I am a mom to 3 incredible boys, a wife, writer, virtual assistant and a business owner.
Thistle Hill is a name I have heard since I was young. My mom used it to describe the house where we lived. It was full of love, hard work, God, and real people who I call my family.

You are welcome to join in the conversation. I would love to hear from you. You can visit our Facebook Page, leave a comment on one of the Thistle Hill Blog Posts, or reach out to me directly by email.
