Who is the Nut House Mama?
I am Andie, a forty-something mom of two young men, foster mom to an amazing girl and wife to a long-time aviation mechanic and airplane nut. I love nature - especially geology and animals and am most at peace in the mountains and at the beach. I am an artist who is just trying to cope with the crazy curve balls life is always throwing at me and my family and friends (who call me the "Nut House Mama"). I believe in God, prayer, miracles, travel, the healing power of humor and hope, hugs, paying it forward and appreciate a fine, icy craft beer at the end of a long day.
Art has been a lifelong passion of mine and it has played a major part in my life as a wife, mom, friend and ministry leader. Over the past several years, I have found that using art along with prayer can be a powerful coping tool for me in my battle with anxiety and allows me to fulfill my mission of reaching out to others and reminding them that they are not alone. (It also gives me a chance to work out my "inner squirrel" energy and an outlet for a nearly pathological need to create things.) This has led to a ministry of "prayer doodles" and the creation of coloring books that others can color while they pray or meditate.
