Hi, I’m Amanda Winder! Born & raised in a family that taught me to look at the world from the inside out, I’ve always been super invested in the health and healing of the whole person through Jesus Christ.

At the age of 17, I found myself weighing in at 235 lbs and completely insecure. Wanting to lose weight, I slowly began to change my lifestyle. A long the way, I took what I learned about inner health and wholeness and applied it.

The result? I lost 100 lbs over the course of 4 years, and I’ve maintained it for 12 years. Was it easy? No, honestly it was a challenge to get to today; however, through the Holy Spirit led process of cultivation, I’ve gained so much freedom, restoration and life in the areas of my spirit, soul, heart & body.

And, this blog… This blog has been an outlet for me for the past 7 years. It’s been a place where I’ve been able to openly write about my internal struggles with death, grief, depression, anxiety, fear, fear of man, fear of money, bitterness, anger, hatred and a slew of other things. 

Now, while all of my writings encounter some type of darkness, they always aim to direct myself and the reader to focus on moving forward with Holy Spirit because that’s where we thrive in life!

Aside from this blog, I am the owner & operator of Cultivate Life, Inc: A space for every person to refine, develop, mature and grow: spirit, soul, heart and body.

Cultivate Life is unique because it contains the heartbeat of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God, but without religion involved.

I believe, when we accept, respect and love one another the way that Father God, Jesus and Holy Spirit love us, we are able to live healthier, freer and fuller lives.
