Hello, I'm Amy!

Owner of Sunshine and Oranges

Likes to eat chocolate, In-N-Out, pickles




I am a blogging, Jesus-loving, homeschooling mommy, wife, friend, daughter, and sister who is living the journey of life choosing joy in God's Creation around me and within my home. He has surely done great things for us!

We currently live in Herald, CA and operate a family farm on 20 acres (Abundance Acres Farm, Herald, CA). We have homeschooled using an eclectic mixture of curriculum over the years all designed to help each child individually with their gifts and talents, yet we still consider discipleship the top priority. 

I have three book projects in the planning stages including a devotional for moms like me, a book about the teachings of Jesus and God's word concerning natural processes of the world and farming, and about having an eternal mindset while living life out.


It is definitely easy to get caught up in the mundane of the duties of life and motherhood. It is easy to lose sight of the joy of the great commission we have received by being blessed with these children. There was a moment in my life as a young mom when I looked up from my time in the word to see the sun shining down, and the orange tree bursting with beautiful fruit. It is the SON that brings us life, and abiding in Him grows the fruit we desire in our life.


Let it not be that we lose this joy, this comfort, and the friendship we have in our Lord and Savior. The grace He gives us is sufficient. Let's rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and encourage each other look at the sweetness of Him, and the shining glory of His attributes. 

I have limited availability to speak at Christian women or children events in the Sacramento area and surrounding. Please use the form below to reach out and explain your date and needs. My style of teaching is expository: picking a passage to teach by using cross references to stay true to the contextual meaning of the passage. It is my goal to let the Word of God speak to your main theme or topic.
