Hey there… I’m Amy. I have a passion for people, communities and cultures, and I especially love seeing how they intersect in the “everyday” today. Over the past 10 years, our family has lived in Louisiana, Texas, Germany, and now, Michigan. No matter where we call "home"… we love to embrace local life, travel, and grow in the everyday mission of raising a Christ-centered family. On my blog, I want to connect the old [ROOTS] with the new [REISE] (German for journey) to help make our present more beautiful, more compassionate, and more purpose-filled. Join the journey with me!
