Amanda Gist is a two-time author, passionate storyteller, thunderstorm lover, and mac & cheese aficionado.

Soul Diving: 52 Weeks of Journal Prompts to Uplevel Your Life was released in December of 2020, thoughtfully modeled after internal work Amanda did to change the course of her life from years of stagnant, dark energy into a light, fulfilling, upward trajectory. 

Amanda’s first book was Amazon #1 New Release 10 Reasons Dogs Are the Absolute Best: A Book of Tiny Tails, a collection of heart-tugging and laughable true stories about the depth of her relationship with the rescue dog that saved her in the midst of suicidal depression.

After years of struggling with her own mental health, she now writes from personal experience on topics like healing, self-compassion, transforming your life, taking back your power, and finding your truth.

“You seem to have the amazing ability to write what I need to hear, when I need to hear it. Thank you.” – Joanne P.
