Nobody finishes well by accident.
— John C. Maxwell, Intentional Living: Choosing a Life That Matters

The Girl

I'm Amanda. I've been blogging quietly in a corner for quite some time, and it wasn't until 2016 that I decided to go more public and share all of the things I've been up to. 

After graduating from University, I got married and moved to a new country in a matter of weeks. So now I find myself, a proud Canadian, living in the United States adjusting to life as a new [pastor's] wife and cat mom in the state that is Michigan.


The Idea

Even though I work full-time as an elementary school teacher, I've been able to rekindle the love affair that I have with all things domestic. When I'm not teaching, cleaning, experimenting in the kitchen, making lists or grocery shopping, you can usually find me tinkering with some of my many hobbies like music, crocheting, running, and photography.

I've also been able to implement changes in every day habits that have brought satisfaction, health and joy to my life! 

The Blog

Maple Alps is a faith-based lifestyle blog focused on living intentionally, simply and content. I've chosen to live an intentional life, and as a Christian, I believe I am called to glorify God in all that I do - from what I eat to how I choose to spend my money. This is a place where I share how I practically do that, and help others do the same.
