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.

I’ll meet you in the field: the spirituality of coming together

Reflection | Posted on May 17, 2017

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the
phrase each other doesn’t make any sense. — Rumi

Saint Mother Theodore Guerin: bearing the light still today

Reflection | Posted on January 11, 2017

Saint Mother Theodore’s story is still very relevant today. She was an immigrant. She came to a foreign land where she didn’t know the language and where there was a lot of prejudice and bias toward Catholics and toward women. There are just so many parallels to what she faced and what she endured that are still around today. She’s a great model and mentor. Continue reading
