I want to welcome you to the Laundry Pile. I am so glad you are here. I hope you come in and make yourself comfortable. I also hope that you share with me what you think about what you find here. You can find many different topics here on the Laundry Pile. If you are looking for blog posts on Marriage be sure to head over here. If you are looking for topics about Bible Study head over here. And if you are looking for a good book to read head over to my Book Review spot and see what I am reading lately. I hope you feel welcome to look around and find something that interests you.

You may be wondering who is this woman behind the Laundry Pile. My name is Amy and I am the mom to five amazing kids. I am homeschooling all five at this time and loving it more and more each day. I am so stunned at how much I am learning as I work through teaching my children from day-to-day.

I am also a mom who lives with chronic illness. More than a decade ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. There are days when my health is better than others, but I am working hard to find the joy even in the midst of the struggle. I have found that the Lord has been faithful beyond my expectation through it all.

I hope you find the Laundry Pile a place of encouragement and rest. Grab a cup of tea or coffee (my preference) and sit a while.


In just a few weeks my husband will be participating in the #WalkwithCompassion day here in our city. I love supporting Compassion International. First of all, there are many organizations that are working with children, but with Compassion International you can feel confident that 84% of the money you give is actually going to the children in need. The other 17% of the money they receive goes to support services. One recent way they used that 17% was to change and upgrade their computer systems. With the new computer changes, as a supporter of compassion, I can now get my letters to my ‘adopted’ kids much faster. Now Compassion has the option of scanning the letters from the kids and posting them on my compassion page. They are saving a ton of money by not mailing me a paper copy of the letter. If I choose to keep a paper copy I can simply print it directly from my computer. I do find the new system a nice one.

Compassion is working hard to take care of many kids around the world who are suffering from poverty. Would you please consider helping my husband and I to raise money for this fantastic organization? Click here.
