TESTIMONIALS

“For a small child there is no division between playing and learning between the things he or she does just for fun and things that are educational. The child learns while living and any part of living that is enjoyable is also play.” -Penelope Leach

About Amy
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR FREE TIME?
In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities, from water skiing, to hiking and evening a little basketball in our driveway.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FORWARD TO EACH TIME YOU COME TO WORK AT HEARTS & MINDS?
Each day I walk in the doors of Hearts & Minds Christ’s love is felt.  It’s through a smile, a high five, even a hug…love surrounds you in this place.
HOW WOULD YOUR BEST FRIEND DESCRIBE YOU?
My friends would describe me as loyal, some what stubborn, and always up for an adventure.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAMILY
My husband, Blake and I were married in 2000 and currently live in Gretna.  Over time we have grown from a family of 2 to a family of 6.  Sarah, Abby, Libby and Bryce, are a crazy crew who keep us busy.  We also have a sweet Golden Retriever named Oz.  In the good seasons and in the not so good seasons, we always wear our Husker Red, our KC Royal Blue and our Gretna Dragon Green.
