Welcome to The Pelsers!

My name is Amanda and this is my family, The Pelsers.

I open my home to you as an encouraging and inspiring shelter for your heart by sharing my journey of faith, motherhood, and homeschooling. Make yourself at home, take part in the conversation, and enjoy the journey!

A little more about me…

Josh and I are high school sweethearts. We’ve been married for over 11 years. Jonathan is 8 and Jacob is 4, and Josiah is 2.  I have a BA in Bible and a MA in Old Testament Studies.  Before coming home to be with my boys, I was the communications director at a church for five and half years.

I also have dysthymia, which is a mild but chronic form of depression.  I’ve written an ebook called Finding Joy in Depression to encourage those hiding from their depression or trying to manage their depression or those trying to support  loved on with depression.


I also founded and manage Kids in the Word. Over there we talk all about family discipleship. We’re inspiring, encouraging, and equipping parents to instill a love for God and the Bible in their kids.


And in my “spare” time, I run our technical assistance business, The Pelsers Media. I help bloggers with the behind the scenes stuff like WordPress maintenance. It’s fun and it helps the family budget.

What is Havenhart?

We named our homeschool Havenhart Academy.  We want out home to be a shelter for the heart of our boys.  We’ve been “officially” homeschooling since the spring of 2010.
