The Bio

Hello! Thank you for checking out my website The Lesser Me! I am so excited to get the opportunity to have my blog and artwork pulled up on your screen today! I pray that God uses this website to speak His truth into your life.

My name is Amanda Welch, I always find it hard to describe myself eloquently enough to sound good! But that is part of my process, and my lack of self confidence that I hope to build up from creating this site. I do know the order in which my life should be prioritized: God, husband, kids, ministry, work… but I must admit I am a complete failure some days at keeping my priorities in check! Which is why I chose “The Lesser Me” as my name. I need to become less, so that He can become more. I want this blog to be authentic, to be real, blemishes and all. For in my weakness He is made strong! I have come to realize that transparency is very important in ministry and life in general. Am I perfect? Heck no! Do I sin? Yes! Every single day! I am learning most important things to focus on are God, His word, and what kind of fruit I yield.

My husband Jon, is a pastor, and my biggest fan! He always encourages me to grow deeper in the Word, to take on challenges that I may cower to, and to share the talent God gave me with all of you! God has given me a vision over the past few years, and it has become clearer to me what my future will hold. I am so excited to find out what God is going to do! God plants a seed and when I water it with the Word, guess what? It grows! So, my goal is to bless every reader with a chance to win a necklace with God’s Word in it. I hope to have a piece of artwork that will coincide with the main theme of each blog with scripture, because my hope is to plant the Word of God in your home, and close to your heart, as a reminder for you to see each day. I will also have artwork available to purchase in The Shop, but I truly hope God will bless you and everyone else who reads my blogs.

Did I mention I have two of the most beautiful girls in the whole world to call my daughters? Naya is 11, Nora Jean is 5, and we have the best time together! I have been blessed to stay home with them for 5 years now, and although some days it is tough, I wouldn’t trade it for the highest paying job in the world! They are my little disciples, and although some days we get distracted with life, I pray my actions and words will be a good example for them to follow. So, once again, thank you so much for taking the time to read my thoughts. I hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave me a comment, or follow me on Facebook and Instagram! Have a blessed day!
