Mandy is wife to 1, mom to 6, and an elementary school teacher. She and her husband Joe live in the Dallas, TX area. Mandy has felt a calling to women's ministry since she started blogging in 2009 . She envisioned creating a sense of community and passion at the original site, Deliberate Women, which she founded in 2012. In October of 2017, Mandy felt led to change the name of the website and ministry to She Heard in reference to John 4.
Mandy feels that now is the time to step forward boldly in faith and demonstrate a life of love and purpose-- and how that looks in everyday life. It's her goal to be real and transparent as she seeks to "work with her hands and live a quiet life" in the hopes that others will follow the Great Commission to GO! ...starting right where they are.
