Bio

Amanda P. Westmont has a co-dependent relationship with her Kindle and a blog named after her breast milk. She lives in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon with a deaf rat terrier named Harry, two delectable children and a collection of vinyl motorcycle jackets. She co-authors a religion blog called yearofsundays.com with her cute, bald boyfriend who likes to keep her up all night and then clean her kitchen the next morning.

I’m not sure I’ve admitted it on this blog before, but I happen to be a registered Republican. Wait! Where are you going?! Stay! I’m a NICE Republican, I swear. I’m pro gay marriage! I’m against don’t ask, don’t tell! […]

A friend posted the following video to my Facebook page and I just had to share it here. Remind you of anything?

By Amanda P. Westmont Walking through the front doors of City Bible Church is much like wading through the crowd into a rock concert. You can practically see the energy sparking in the air like a hormone meringue pie whipped […]

Joel and I hate to admit this, but we’ve have had one hell of a week. And City Bible Church was one hell of a church. We don’t want to rush our reviews because we both feel they might be […]

By Amanda P. Westmont Sunday morning came much earlier than usual this weekend. Drunk on the generosity of a friend who gifted us her just-about-to-expire hotel groupon, Joel and I had stayed up way too late on Saturday night for […]
