What started as a way to remember her love of rural America and her grandparent's farm morphed into Amy Bretall taking photos of crosses as she further developed her faith in her mid-forties. Amy's faith deepened when realizing God's blending beauty while taking care of Sweet Jean, her adopted grandmother, during her final years of life. The power of Amy's prayers unfolded as she began seeing patterns of faith appear in her daily activities by finding "everyday" crosses.Born and raised in Missouri, Amy resides in Kansas City, Missouri. She has a twenty-plus year career in human resources, where she held various senior-level management positions.

Amy speaks to churches, organizations and groups of all ages about her faith, photography, and books to inspire faith. Placing God first in life, Amy believes if she's meant to write, then He will give her the words. This is book two.amybretall.comFollow on Instagram @ LiveBreatheAlive
