Beautiful Imagery and Poetry

"Beautiful imagery with grounded natural messages of faith. This book is written from the heart for the mind, body and soul. It is a touching look at how we trip over things everyday. Sometimes we realize the grace and other times we completely lost in other pursuits. Thanks for reminding of the things that matter. Bought several to give as gifts to others." -MaryAnn C.

Her writing gave me the ability to see what has always been right in front of me

"I was truly transformed by Amy's thought processes and her observations of what we all see everyday and yet do not think about what God has been telling us all along. What a wonderful book and I sincerely recommend it to anyone." -Jim B.

Meaningful Book!

"Gorgeous book. Not only are the pictures beautiful, but the author's words are authentic, encouraging, and inspiring. I gave this book as a gift and it was a huge hit. Unexpected upside? I now see crosses EVERYWHERE and it makes me smile and give thanks every time. What's not to like? Looking forward to buying more copies for gifts." -Lynn P.

An Incredible Read!

A fusion of graceful imagery combined with introspective text, In Plain Sight takes readers on a journey brimming with belief, hope, and faith. The cross serves as the book’s central character, taking shape in sunsets, shadows, sidewalks, and even stucco. Through chance encounters, we are reminded that when viewed through the proper lens nothing is mundane – even the little things in life can be extraordinary. -Chelan D.

Beautiful and Mesmerizing

"I absolutely loved all of the beautiful pictures and amazing inspirations throughout this book. The delicate simplicity of everyday crosses throughout Amy’s life are so powerful. This is a great book for anyone of any age!"    -Jennifer M.

Truly inspiring!

"Such a beautiful book on feeling and experiencing His love and presence everywhere, in all you do and see. Truly inspiring way to keep Him in your thoughts. Beautiful pictures, wonderful entries."  -Cindy L.

A Must Read!

"This book provides the reader with a new and unique way of looking at faith. We don’t realize the slightest signs of faith in our everyday walk. This book helps point them out and ingrain it into your mind and spirit."-Jordan S.
