NICE TO MEET YOU
AMANDA & NATHAN
We are the Savorys
We are Amanda and Nathan Savory. We're based in the gorgeous English Lake District, having lived between us in Scotland, USA, India, Malaysia, New Zealand. Amanda grew up in the Lakes and Nathan's from (Royal!) Tunbridge Wells.
We've been married around three years and are still figuring this messy life and marriage thing out all the time!
We love biking, hiking, swimming in the lake, making jewellery together, and eating homemade pizza (YUM)... Doing life with good food, faith, awesome friends, connecting with others and finding places to adventure in.
SO... WHAT IS
THE CREATIVE ADVENTURE?
The Creative Adventure is a life coaching and adventure collaboration, designed to help you choose your best life of adventure!
We want to encourage you as you make your unique contribution on this planet.
COACHING & MENTORING
Helping young people to follow their dreams,
by enabling them to articulate their values
A process of discovering their identity
and how it links with their calling
Encouraging them to choose their futures
with courage and tenacity
Equipping Christians to hear
the Father's heart for themselves
- and helping them go deeper
Using the Enneagram as a tool for discovery
(themselves and others, and how they relate to God)
Adventure, Creativity, Freedom
I love to get outside, connect with people, spend time with Jesus and get creative.
I see life as an adventure (being outside, faith and living life to the full). I want to bring others (and you!) on that journey, so they feel more positive about life and discover the joy of being and living.
I hope to inspire people to live out more fully who they were created to be. This involves igniting others to hear the Holy Spirit for themselves.
As well as Coaching, I am writing my first novel, have a jewellery business with Nathan, co-lead a programme for women in leadership, and do Communications for Christian ministry called The Filling Station.

Justice, Courage, Loyalty
I love being outside, and sharing my love of adventure with others.
My camera always comes along with me too!
Teaching and leading others comes naturally, from years working in outdoor centres for many years.
Taking people on an adventure and seeing their enthusiasm, as they discover something new is such a joy! my goal is to capture that moment - whether it's a family or individual.
As well as Adventure photography, I work full time as a Woodturner at a prestigious furniture design company in the South Lakes. I started a jewellery business with Amanda, during lockdown, and love to get creative in the kitchen (including meals like pasta from scratch).

OUR STORY (THE P.S.)
Isn't it easy, to get stuck in the mundane of everyday life?
We can put to-dos and chores ahead of adventure. We can get stuck in a rut.
When we got married in October 2019, we felt that our marriage life story was designed to inspire others to adventure.
Yes, it was definitely love that got us together! But there was an "and".
We felt a purpose as a couple to be in the outdoors, helping to release the creative potential and helping others write (or even re-write) their own stories.
We continue to discover how to live out this purpose: our faith unites us, our relationships form us, and the places we go and the land we walk on becomes part of our story.
We know that each of us is built unique and we both have a life calling, separately as well as together.
Of course, adventure doesn't have to be an instagrammable moment, or something that has to have a blog post about it. There are plenty of moments we choose not to share. It's just as much the secret times and risk-taking moments in the small, as much as the mountain-top moment of adventure, spirituality or a life dream.
And we're careful that we don't still seek personal and external affirmation by putting on a show of our "best life". Adventure can never solely give us life's true satisfaction.
So, friend. How will you live this one precious life? And who will you do it with?
