Hello and welcome!

When I first started this blog back in 2011, it was in order to help me write my way through the grief process. I was coming out of a season of profound loss (more on that here), and I used writing here as a way to explore what happiness would look like once the shock of grief began to wear off and my “new normal” resumed. At the time I was also a new mom who had given up a rewarding job in order to start what was supposed to be a new, even more rewarding one. (My transition to stay-at-home mom was a rocky one.) 2012 was a wild ride.

I took about a year and a half off writing for various reasons; now I am back. I have really missed writing, and I anticipate using this space now as a way to chronicle my life these days (because it’s such a blur and I don’t want to forget the day-to-day), think “out loud” as it were, and of course continue my quest to yogavangelize to the world.

Despite my longing for the next life, I want to enjoy the one I have now as best I can. I’m trying to live out this verse:

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
– Romans 12:12

and I have seen this promise come true:

I will turn their mourning into gladness;
I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
– Jeremiah 31:13

Thanks for stopping by! I love receiving comments and emails, so feel free to say hi. I can be reached at amy.r.huffman@gmail.com. My header image is Edward Hopper’s “Morning Sun”. And above, of course, is me.

  1. Have you read: An Empty Cradle a Full Heart: Reflections for Mothers and Fathers After Miscarriage, Stillbirth, or Infant Death by Christine O’Keeffe Lafser? It’s a wonderful book that you could add to your list during this journey, if you haven’t already read it. My infant son died 4 1/2 months ago, and I’ve found a lot of comfort in this book.

      I haven’t, but it sounds like a comforting, healing read. I’m so sorry for your loss.
