Meet Amanda


Hi, I’m Amanda Bacon. I have been married to Jeremy for 18 years and am the mom of 8 children ages 5-16. As a young girl, or even a newlywed for that matter, I never saw my future self as the mom of a large family. It just wasn’t on my radar. Back then I could never have imagined the path God would ask me to walk.

After our first 4 children were born the old-fashioned way, we began to wonder if adoption was something we should be involved in. The combination of the Holy Spirit nudging us in that direction and the entrance of our niece into the family through international adoption sealed the deal. It was something our family should do. Three adoptions later (one private and two foster) along with giving birth to one more baby brought our kid count up to 8. And here we are. One big, loud, half- homeschooling, half-public schooling family!

Our family has recently made a cross-country move to North Carolina, where I have come on staff at Proverbs 31 Ministries.

I’m not a perfect mom, but I’m willing. Willing to learn, grow, and be molded into who God desires me to be for His glory. And boy, oh boy, does this life ever present ample opportunities for me to grow. But each and every time, I come out of the wash with one less wrinkle. And for that I’m thankful.

I can’t tell you how happy I am to be here with you and to have the chance to share this space with my good buddy, Anne-Renee. She has been a gift to me for many years in life and ministry. I think you’ll love her as much as I do.

You can find me elsewhere online at my blog or on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram – @amanda_baconbits

Thanks for coming by, I look forward to seeing more of you.
