Living Generously, Sharing Faithfully




Do you stress? I stress!


I stress | you stress | we stress the need for Eustress. 


The Washington Conference Women's Ministry Retreat 2023 will discuss stress management and the advantages--say what? advantages?--yes, advantages to certain kinds of stress. It's called: Eustress.



Learn more about Eustress and how it fits in with your life, your relationships with others, and your relationship with God.

This will be a weekend of fun, friendship, and fulfillment. Boo, YOU NEED THIS WEEKEND! YOU do 'EU'!

Amanda Anguish is a Marriage and Family Therapist at Beautiful Minds Medical in Auburn, CA, and the Nedley Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program. From refurbishing furniture to refurbishing the mind, Amanda loves home and people improvement. Amanda believes in honest therapy. Her goal is to empower clients to discover the causes behind their challenges and take action to address them.

Amanda is a co-host of The Brain People Podcast and speaks on mental health and faith for retreats, conferences, and camp meetings. While she focuses on anxiety and mood disorders, she has expertise with at-risk teens and substance recovery. When she can, she loves to refurbish furniture and travel with her husband, Tim. Her greatest joy is in helping people prepare for eternity by practicing Ephesians 4:8.

Before she became a therapist, Amanda earned a bachelors degree in public relations from Pacific Union College. While working in development/fundraising for a private high school, Amanda realized that many of the students there were struggling with home and life
challenges that made it hard for them to focus in school. She wanted to find a way to help.

After reading a book on Christian counseling, Amanda decided to enter the field. She earned a masters degree in marriage and family therapy at Loma Linda University. It brings Amanda great joy to help her clients experience complete renovation!
