About Amy Jane Helmericks

Fairbanks, Alaska, USA

I was the child who found encyclopedias to be real page-turners. I collected a lot of truth, but I didn't understand my own limits. In 2010, my margin evaporated, initiating a two-year depression. Escaping involved relearning who I am created to be, and motivates my teaching and writing today. For over 13 years, I have been married to a man who is my match. We are the parents and teachers of three children born in three years. My time is filled with the daily tasks of food, clothing, and general life-giving, but my head is filled with Story.
