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 and fashion).
A Little Introduction
I’m a Catholic convert, writer, speaker, podcaster, wife, and bookish mama to three (ages 7, 5, and 3). We left our urban life in Florida to live on a farm in Texas where my husband did a sustainable agriculture internship and we stuck around. I spend my days writing, homeschooling my little ones, and making sure we don’t run out of bacon.
When I get a moment to myself I love to read Evelyn Waugh, L.M. Montgomery, or Flannery O’Connor. 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 ten years to my high school sweetheart, Daniel. His beard is impressive, his tattoos are many, and he’s an amazing cook, brew master, gardener, livestock 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, animal-loving seven-year-old big brother and LEGO builder extraordinaire.
Lucy is our darling, sweet-tempered, introverted five-year-old ballerina. She’s our old soul.
Gwen Stellamaris is our hilarious, firecracker of a three-year-old. She is a warrior queen and our only child whose shenanigans often require a call to Poison Control.
If you don’t know where to begin, you might want to check out my most popular posts from last year.

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!
If you’d like me to speak at your event, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will respond with my speaker info.
