I am so excited you finally get to see the new look of The Messy Middle! First, I need to thank and introduce you to Lacy from A Sacred Journey. She is the mind-reader magician who took phrases like “make it look modern” and “I want The Messy Middle to look clean” and “that font is too swoopy” and made this beautiful space.

One summer in high school I was a tour guide for the Colorado State Capital and I LOVED it. So, let’s get this short tour of the new look started. First of all, The Messy Middle has become a website that includes a blog (before it was only a blog). When you go to www.messymiddle.com you will see the options of About, Book, Speaking, and Blog.
About—For those who are new to The Messy Middle. You’ll also find drop downs to where I’m a regular contributor and have guest posted, popular posts, and #DistractedByBeauty.
Book—Looming Transitions will be published in January. You’ll find information about the content and a sneak peak at the cover!
Speaking—If you’re looking for a speaker you can find out how I could be that person on this page.
Blog—Have no fear, this is where the 500 posts up to the point are housed. Yes, folks this is post 501. Sounds like a good firing jean, doesn’t it?
Then you see a small picture of me and a little bit about the philosophy of The Messy Middle. I believe it’s the call for each of us who are followers of Jesus.
Below that is the beautiful easy to find—as I like to call them—Door number 1, 2, and 3:
I just want to pinch myself it looks so nice! When you poke around the blog tab, you’ll notice that it looks similar to the previous version of the blog. The primary changes are buttons near the top if you want to email me, find me on Facebook, check out my Instagram feed, see my Pinterest boards, or follow via RSS feed. The other change is that the posts are now going to be published via Mailchimp, so you can subscribe to either the posts and/or the newsletter in one place. (Thank you, Lacy!)
Finally, near the bottom you’ll find the four post recent posts for the blog.
I am so happy to be able to share this space with you. I hope you have fun looking around and seeing what a great job Lacy has done.
Grace and peace,

It’s beautiful, Amy! How exciting to have a new look. Especially when it’s this pretty :)
And so grateful knowing I could NEVER have come up with without help :)!
I’ll miss the air conditioner guy, but have to admit this is an upgrade!
I understand! That’s my one sadness . . . that’s why I made him a part of my “about page.” But still, not the same :(
