Who is the Nut House Mama?
I am Andie, a fifty-something mom of three, Gamma to two amazing grandkids and wife to a long-time aviation nut. I love nature - especially geology and animals and am most at peace in the mountains and at the beach. (My heart belongs to the mountains but my soul belongs to the sea...) I am a medical assistant and an artist who is just running with the crazy curve balls life throws at me, my family and friends (who call me the "Nut House Mama"). I believe in Jesus, 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 tool for overcoming anxiety and staying focused. It also allows me to fulfill my mission of reaching out to others and reminding them that they are not alone. (Bonus: I get to work out my "inner squirrel" energy and channel my nearly pathological need to create things.) This has led to a ministry of "prayer doodles" and the creation of my prayer doodle coloring books (more details on the Coloring Books page).
