Amanda gave her heart to Jesus as a small girl, and she grew from a shy, intimidated little girl to a warrior daughter of God as she pursued His presence and opened her heart for His love. His unconditional love and presence became her very source of strength, healing, and restoration. Being set free from the levels of rejection and inferiority that became a healthy lifestyle for her because of the childhood experiences she grew spiritually into a passionate woman of God who understands her worth and identity.
She, therefore, avails her life to equip and see the House of God being set free from a false identity that most of the times lead to a passive unfruitful Christian lifestyle. She lives to see the House of God arise as the powerful Warrior Bride He called her to be. Amanda moved to Standerton with her husband Barend and two sons Francois and SP in 1996. God imparted the sound of His heart for Standerton in her heart, and she became sold out to see the glory of God restored in her ‘city.’
