Amy spoke to a site focused on Motherhood and answered six questions about being a mother.
Amy said she'll be spending this Mother's Day at home with the kids as it will be Jeremy's and Zach's 19th birthday as well.
She was also asked what is her greatest wish for her kids?
Amy answered: "To keep their faith which will help them stay grounded, and to know true joy. The joy that is always there no matter what life may bring. I want them to know they have a purpose and to just appreciate every moment. Give back if you can. Thrive not just survive."
Amy was asked what was the most important parenting lesson she learned from her mother, Pat Knight. Amy said what her mother did best was keep and neat and orderly house, but Amy didn't pick up that trait ;-). She said her mother tried to do it all and the important thing is to make the best of whatever situation you find yourself in. Amy also said she learned to rely on her faith from her mother.
Amy's favorite part of being a mom is spending time with her kids. You have to hand it to Amy there. She does love spending time with her kids. She talks about how when they speak about a something or their friends refer to something, she knows what they're talking about because she was there and knows what is going on. Amy makes the point again, as she did in the episode that included Mike's memorial that it is more important for her to spend time with the people she loves and cares about than to worry about things such as if the house is in a mess and what she thinks will impress other people or what is important to them. Personally, I really like that about Amy.
She was asked about how the state of the world has affected her views on being a mother. She again talked about her faith and made this statement: "My focus is not on all of the stuff around me and what is happening, but on Him and how can I raise my kids to still be the best they can be in a world that is constantly changing. I have to help them to keep themselves grounded and still have character and compassion for others amongst all that is happening."
