Have you ever caught yourself being the family photographer? Sometimes failing to get everyone to look at the camera, or smile without a HUGE effort filled grin. I know I have, and failed more often than not. So, when earlier this school year as we…

Amanda Powers - Wife | Mom | Volunteer | Writer @3lilapples
Introduction

I am Amanda thirty-one years young, wife to Wes, mother to 3 Simon, Rebecca, Dillon, then step-friend to Scott, and you can read more about them here.

Jesus is my Lord and Savior; every day is a step closer to pleasing Him.  I am passionate about most everything except house chores, I love an adventure and long car rides to nowhere. I tend to be arrogant more than I want to be(I am working on my humility), but also show concern and a helpful attitude.  When I have a moment of time for myself I will often study my bible, color, draw, or glue things. When I write a post on 3 lil’ apples it will often be about something I am troubled with, a recipe or tip to share, a family adventure, or product I’ve reviewed.
