My guest for episode 21 is Amanda Anderson. Amanda is an artist and has a business, Sketched and Sealed, painting personalized artwork. She is a wife and mom to three children ages 6, 3 and 10 months. She believes in chasing your dreams and is currently pursuing a degree in architecture. Amanda recently shared on her Instagram accountabout the extreme post-partum depression she experienced after her second child. She has a beautiful story about how an involuntary admission to a mental hospital helped her turn to God as well as reach out to those around her who were also struggling. God helped her come out of the darkness she felt, and I am excited to share part of her motherhood story on the podcast.
Amanda mentioned the Personal Progress programas something that helped her during her stay in a mental health hospital. Personal Progress is an achievement program for young women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Go hereto learn more.
We mentioned this quote by Thomas S. Monson, "“The present is here. Live in it.” You can read more by going here.
Amanda highly recommends the book The Mother in Meby Kathryn Soper as a resource for all moms as it helped her greatly during her battle with post-partum depression.
