Amy Nelson Hannon lives in Springdale, Arkansas in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. She is married to her college sweetheart who is still the funniest boy in the world. Her three greatest gifts came packaged as Grace, Luke, and Isaac.
In her early twenties, Amy cut her hospitality teeth living out her role as a preacher’s wife in the South where it’s a way of life to make and share food for just about every reason on Earth. She learned quickly what a joy it is when friends bellow with laughter around a dinner table and tell stories after the plates are pushed away. Sharing good food and life together got in her blood.
In May 2014, after almost 13 years as a work-from-home wedding stationer, Amy pursued her dream of opening a kitchen boutique in her grandmother’s name. Because like Euna Mae (pronounced ‘yoo-na’), Amy loves to be in her kitchen making food for those she loves.
Shortly after opening Euna Mae’s, Amy was hired by Northwest Arkansas’ NBC affiliate to host a cooking show, having filmed 160 episodes over two seasons. She also authored a comfort food cookbook titled Love Welcome Serve (Center Street | November 2017) with hopes of encouraging and equipping you to make and share food with your people.
She now speaks to women, hosts events, and drums up all kinds of experiences in order to share her simple, authentic hospitality message.
Amy’s hope is that she inspires hospitality in your heart and encourages you to love deeply, welcome gladly, and serve faithfully so that in all things God will be praised. (I Peter 4:8-11) Amy wishes she knew how to quilt, is a spirited football fan, and can’t help but bake an apple pie on the first crisp day of Autumn.
