Youth Advocate


Amanda, also known as Mandie started at Cup as a Youth Advocate back in early February of 2020. She has been married to her best friend (Tim) for 18 years and they have two daughters together Makaila (22) and Abbigayl (12). 


Amanda has a long history in the ministry, outreach and serving the community having been raised in her parent’s church and being heavily involved in multiple areas including leading worship, prison ministry, volunteering at local shelters, inner city youth outreach and mentoring youth that came into their home. That ministry started on the Spokane Indian Reservation in 1981 and moved to Spokane in 1991-2013. Her parents, Jeff and Joann Doud pastored V.W.F.C. Victorious Warriors for Christ Native American church. 


“Being able to be a full time stay at home mom to our daughters has been one of the biggest blessings and greatest accomplishments of my life!” She is a very proud mama and has enjoyed being able to be so involved in the lives of her girls. While in the role of being a mom she has stayed active in the church, volunteering in the community and in her daughters schools and mentoring youth. In 2019 she felt God calling her back to working outside the home as well and that is how she became a part of the Cup of Cool Water family. 


She is an enrolled Spokane Tribal member. She loves spending time with her family, camping, fishing, traveling, music, movies, people who like to quote ridiculous lines from movies with her:), sports (Zags & Hawks) and exploring new places. She’s excited to see what God has in store for this next chapter in her life and the lives of those she is serving!
