Is it possible to change old parenting habits? Can you really transform anger and yelling into calm and gentle? Can you be triggered by your kids' behavior and actually choose to respond with grace instead of reacting in anger?
The answer to all of these questions is a resounding YES! And I want to help you. My name is Amanda, and I help mamas feel less stressed and angry so they can flourish in motherhood. I’m crazy passionate about this because I used to be overwhelmed and angry, and I took it out on my family. I'll share with you the practical steps I took, and how God is working in my heart even today, to cultivate peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and generous grace towards my children.

Amanda Erickson is a mom just like you! She got her start in parenting through foster care, diving head-first into parenting tweens and teens from hard places. Now she’s mom to a spirited almost-six-year-old and a creative seven-year-old. Amanda is passionate about helping moms be less stressed and angry so they can flourish in their motherhood. This passion is born out of her own experience with postpartum anxiety, rage, and anger. She delights in linking arms with other mamas so they know that gentle, peaceful, grace-based parenting isn’t only Scripturally sound, it’s actually possible! Amanda and her husband, Dr. David Erickson teach parents all over the world through their ministry, Flourishing Homes & Families. With practical parenting advice and regular theology of parenting discussions, they are working to equip and empower parents to live out in parenting the very real grace they’ve been given by Jesus.
