Hi, I'm Haley!

Welcome to Carrots! I’m so glad you stopped by my little corner of the web where I write about motherhood, faith, and literature (with a healthy dose of miscellany).

A little introduction:

I’m a Catholic convert, writer, speaker, wife, and bookish mama to three (ages 5, 2, and 1) living in the bright, sunny South on our little urban homestead. After quitting grad school to raise my little ones, I spend my days writing, homeschooling my preschoolercelebrating the seasons of the Christian Year, and chasing my babies or The Questing Beast and our other backyard chickens.

When I get a moment to myself I love to read Evelyn Waugh, L.M. Montgomery, or Flannery O’Connor with a cup of coffee in hand. And I’m always up for a chat about Jane Austen.

No, really. Jane Austen all the time. OK, moving on.



I’ve been married for eight years to my high school sweetheart, Daniel. His beard is impressive, his tattoos are many, and he’s an amazing cook, brew master, gardener, backyard chicken farmer, and ultra-marathon runner who lovingly puts up with my failure to keep our house clean and watches countless BBC miniseries with me without complaint. What a guy! He shares some brilliant thoughts over at his blog, Daniel Bearman: Acts of Idiot Praise.


Benjamin is our lively, chatty five-year-old big brother and LEGO builder extraordinaire.


Lucy is our darling, sweet-tempered toddler who tries to keep up with big brother and plays little mama to her baby sister.

Gwen Stellamaris is our precious, snuggly new addition with undeniably awesome hair for a one-year-old. I mean look at those pigtails!

Thanks again for dropping by! You can contact me at haley.s.stewart(at)gmail(dot)com

I love getting email from readers and I read each and every one! And I try very hard to respond. But I truly can’t respond to all the wonderful emails from readers in a timely manner and be a good mama, too. And my kids are awfully cute, so if a choice has to be made, I choose them. Thanks for understanding if it takes me forever to respond!
