  4. Hi Amanda, I’ve kind of known you for years (but you don’t know me) – I’ve been going to The Red Door Community Church for over 5 years and have seen you around Riverview occasionally. I’ve only just stumbled onto this lovely site and your little video made me cry! How amazing that you had that lady come and knock on your door! I’ve been wrestling with God for years about what he wants me to do…back to career or stay at home mum. The answer was always clear: BE A MUM! Why is it that we think thats not enough? I’m so passionate about changing mum’s attitudes to the ‘I’m JUST a stay at home mum’ idea. Gosh, its the best and most important job in the world! Especially when Gods been telling you for years thats where you’re meant to be. Really loving your blog – its easy to connect as I also love crochet and sewing.
    Thanks again!

  5. I noticed your “Take me where” photo on this page. Assuming you created that photo, could I get your permission to reuse it on the cover of our 2016 church directory?

    1. Hey Brad, Its not my photo sorry. Its a photo from Tumblr that we struggled to find the owner of. Thus the problem with the internet. Thanks for asking anyways. Amanda

  8. Have really enjoyed reading your blogs…I am wondering what there is for me to encourage my daughter to get to know others…I have at one stage contacted Penny but she still hasn’t connected anywhere…Trish

    1. Can you email me Trish with more information about how old she is and location wise where you live?



      1. You’re so right that being cool is overrated.

  9. […] Amanda Viviers, a beautiful, strong woman who makes a constant decision to try not to fold to the vulnerability hangover first explained this concept to me (but I think it’s Brene Brown’s brain-child…?). The process begins with sharing a part of yourself/story/heart and ends with panic and a frantic effort to fix the way such vulnerability may have affected what others think about you. It’s also an inner turmoil of shame and embarrassment at the thought of anyone seeing the reality of who you actually are. […]
