My name is Amanda. I am a single mother to a beautiful little baby girl. I am a KC-135 Crew Chief (Airplane Mechanic) in the United States Air Force. I am an aspiring singer/songwriter. I am member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am not a victim. I survived domestic violence and sexual assault.

  1. Hello Amanda 🙂
    Thank you for following my blog.
    I must say that you are very pretty and very brave.
    Hats off to your courage Ma’am. 🙂
    It’s our determination and courage to fight such abuses and violence that keeps us going. Truly said, we are survivors, not victims.
    Looking forward to read more.
    Keep smiling 🙂 Loads of hugs to you and your baby princess.

  2. Thank-you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and for the follow. I have read your posts and must say how brave I think you are. My first marriage failed ( it was not an abusive one) and I thought that was harrowing enough but to add having been assaulted and abused to the misery of a broken partnership must be absolutely terrible. May you find peace and contentment and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter.

  4. Hi Amanda and thank you for following my blog.

    I am so sorry to hear what you went through but I bet you your life is richer now as a result of what you went through?

    I have also been through something but not as bad as what you went through – you can read about it in the interview I gave to The Guardian newspaper at https://tinyurl.com/babarspeaks.

    Thank you for writing about your experience and sharing your struggles. Your courage will give others in similar positions the strength to overcome abuse and survive.

    Well done for considering yourself a survivor, not a victim.

    And finally, here is something for you:

    “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen” (Elisabeth Kübler-Ross)

    Best wishes,

    Babar Ahmad

  5. You certainly are an interesting person Amanda and a beautiful young lady. Goodness! airplane mechanic in the United States Air Force; aspiring singer/songwriter; what a wonderful mix to power your blog. Look forward to your posts that I’m sure will be interesting. And I look forward to a time when some aspiring writer will put you under the microscope and find a wonderful story that just has to be written. Have a nice day Amanda. Oh yes, …. and thank you for following my blog; I’m flattered.

  7. Amanda,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post about these journeys and travels I’ve been on. I’m so blessed to have found your beautiful blog full of inspiration, encouragement and healing. It’s no coincidence that you found me. I’m a recovering drug addict, combating numerous mental illnesses and a victim of childhood abuse of each and every nature; the extent of which I would only feel comfortable divulging privately. Thank you for following and I look forward to following you and perhaps communicating sometime. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks again!
