Hello, I’m Amy Koons. I named this blog Living Everything because I think life should be lived fully, whatever our circumstances or whatever season we are in. I love life with all its beauty, complexity and flaws. I enjoy squeezing the most possible out of every day. This life is fleeting. Our time here is important.
I’m a Christian, an enthusiastic reader, wife to a wonderful man named Kevin, mom to four rambunctious, precious kids, resident of middle-America, and lover of random adventures.
We use a homeschooling/ private classical school hybrid program, which allows us to have extra time together as a family. I try to parent with grace but find that it’s really hard most days! I try to pare down our possessions and activities, and focus on what is essential and most important. And I often fail. I appreciate friends who are transparent, and seek to be that myself.
And, I think I would be remiss to not mention coffee. I finally succumbed to daily coffee when my fourth child was born. I think it would be hard to live fully without it. It’s about pleasure, and it’s about survival.
