 People ask me all the time. “How do you do it?”

I’ll admit, I do have a lot on my plate….any mother does. There are the soccer games, swim practice, homework, Sunday school, tumbling, piano lessons, etc. that certainly keep us on the go. I’m fortunate that Jon, my husband, has a lot of flexibility in his work and takes the lead on that (and most of our family meals, to tell you the truth.) Trust me. I count my blessings.

Even with Jon’s help, I have A LOT going on. I love it, mind you, but I do have A LOT going on. My book, The Miracle of Me from conception to birth, has opened so many new doors…yet I was only planning on one little window. Instead I’m flooded by wind and light and all of the wonderful things coming in…but it can be quite overwhelming. All good things, but time consuming to pursue nonetheless. I see this children’s book as my work and my offering to God, in Thanksgiving for all the blessings He’s given me, and to help teach others that we are ALL chosen by Him. He has a special plan for each one of us. I feel the book is part of my plan.

I’m also the co-founder of Slimpressions shapewear, www.slimpressions.com. Yes, big disconnect, I know. There are all kinds of inspiration out there. In this case, I was inspired to create this product because of my arm flab. Is it wrong to say my arm flab was a gift from God? One thing’s for sure, my body’s never been the same since I gave birth to the children and they certainly were (and are) gifts from God.

Despite all the organized chaos in my life, I also know where my bread is buttered. I’m a Christian woman and call on God regularly. I need Him. He grounds me. I call on him for wisdom , strength and peace…as a mother, a wife, an author, a business owner, a mother, a sister, and as a friend. God understands my complexities like no other. As my youngest brother, Tommy, would say, He knows “how I roll”. And He helps me roll better.

Seek God out. He’s there for you. Talk to Him. He’s listening.

Blessings,
Amy Pedersen

About the book...

The Miracle of Me uses simple language and poetry to teach about a baby's growth and development each week.  Real in utero photography is used along with rulers and scales to visually mark the baby's progress.  While it's simple enough for children, it's great for expecting mothers as well!
