Amanda Penney, UNAFRAID Brand QUEEN, wife to Navy SEAL, Eddie Penney, your favorite Penney Podcast host and chaos coordinator of the Penney household.
Years ago I completed my Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice, but was led down a different path of being a stay at home mom to 2 amazing kiddos. Spending 8 years on the battlefield of raising children (seriously the hardest job in the world), I took up working out as my daily “therapy”. I have always been an active person, but at that point in my life, the need for daily activity was fulfilling much more than just my physical needs. If you have struggled with anxiety at all in your life, you know exactly what I mean. I quickly learned that if I don’t take care of myself, I can’t take care of anyone else.
Fast forward quite a few years and I am now running our own personal circus at home base (the Penney household). Our crew consists of 3 children, plus one (my husband of course) and our 3, seventy five pound dogs (do you think I’m crazy yet?).
Over the last few years, I have witnessed my old self slowly fade away and I am becoming a newer, healthier version of me, which I am really enjoying and I think everyone around me enjoys more too! I have learned to let go and say an emphatic YES to a lot of things I never would have. I have always had a passion for helping people and listening to their struggles, but now I believe that passion has become my purpose.
