Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods

About Amy Miranda


I’ve spent most of my professional career with the Sisters of Providence. I’ve worked with design, photography, writing, publications management, media relations and marketing.

What is your relationship to the Sisters of Providence?

I met my first SPs when I came to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College at age 18. It seems I never actually left Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, moving on to work for the Sisters of Providence for the past 16 years. As a theology and communications major, I came all gung-ho to make a difference for good in the church and the world. In reality these strong and daring women of the church have actually made the difference in me. I became a Providence Associate in 2014.

What do you blog about for the Sisters of Providence?

The wonderful Providence Associate relationship, the SP life and mission, Saint Mother Theodore Guerin and more.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like gardening, going for walks and reading, especially with my kids. My most recent pastime is taking care of backyard chickens.

What are your hobbies?

Photography, gardening, reading, volunteering. I try to like exercise.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

“Be still and know that I am God." (Ps. 46:10) I’ve got to remind myself of this one often because it’s really hard for me to be still.

What is your favorite month (and why)?

I like the variety of the seasons, so I don't know that I have one favorite. I do get tired of winter about one to two months in.
