For nearly two decades Amanda Zwanziger chased the American dream of climbing the corporate ladder, rising to the top in her field, and securing a job that allowed her to travel around the world. While most thought she was “living her dream”, she was miserable. Her heart was not across the world, her heart was at home.
In 2016, God revealed He had a bigger dream for Amanda - He wanted her to minister to women. Inspired by the miraculous recovery of her husband following an accident in which he was paralyzed, and from the many years Amanda herself struggled with mental paralysis, the Paralyzed Movement was formed. Thanks to God’s blessings, she now practices God’s mission for a living.
As a Christian speaker and life coach, Amanda spends her days growing The Paralyzed Movement ministry by helping women rehabilitate what is broken in their lives and gives them tools to identify how God can help them move again. With her heart now at home, she has the free time to do the things that matter most to her…dates with her husband, cheering on their five teenagers in their numerous sporting events, boating, golfing and being an active member at Indianola Community Church in Indianola, Iowa.
“He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” Ephesians 4:15-16
