Amanda Erickson is a mom just like you! She got her start in parenting through foster care, diving head-first into parenting tweens and teens from hard places. Now she’s mom to a spirited (and explosive!) 6.5 year old and a creative, dinosaur-loving 8 year old.
Amanda is passionate about helping moms be less stressed and angry so they can flourish in their motherhood. This passion is born out of her own experience with postpartum anxiety, rage, and anger. She delights in linking arms with other mamas so they know that gentle, peaceful, grace-based parenting isn’t only Scripturally sound, it’s actually possible! Amanda and her husband, Dr. David Erickson teach parents all over the world through their ministry, Flourishing Homes & Families. With practical parenting advice and regular theology of parenting discussions, they are working to equip and empower parents to live out in parenting the very real grace they’ve been given by Jesus.
Amanda holds a Bachelor of Arts in Religion from BMA Theological Seminary.
Dr. David Erickson is committed to helping parents understand what God says about parenting and how parenting practices reflect a person’s underlying beliefs about God. He encourages parents to utilize parenting practices that show to their children the true nature of God.
For thirteen years Dr. Erickson has equipped pastors, missionaries, and lay leaders as a professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Church History, and World Religions. He holds a Ph.D. in Theology from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, a Masters of Divinity from BMA Theological Seminary, and a BA in Bible from Central Baptist College.
