Hello! I’m Amy, and I’m so glad you’re here. In this corner of the Internet, we attach words to big ideas that matter, and we translate those ideas into practical ways to make our lives more meaningful and intentional. If any of that sounds intriguing to you, you are definitely in the right place.

I’ve been a reader my whole life, but at some point during my late teens I started to ask questions while I read. “Why does this matter?” I wondered. “What does this tell me about human nature, about life? How can this change my life?”

Asking those questions eventually led me to pursue a degree in English and a career in education. As I explored different types of literature, I grew to understand that the power of the words we read lies not in the books (or poems or stories or articles) themselves, but in the universal truths they explore.

Today I connect the big ideas in literature and history to practical, everyday truths for twenty-first century readers. I’d love for you to join me! Let’s talk about things that matter.
