Hi! My name is Carrie. I reside in the northwest Atlanta suburbs, and my life for 25 years has revolved around being a mom to seven kiddos. Six are still at home, and life is good.
Some of my most popular posts are here.
I started blogging way back in 2003. For several years I hosted a parenting podcast called NaturalMomsTalkRadio.
Since I started writing words on the internet, I’ve gone through divorce, spent a few years as a single, work-at-home-mom, paid off debt and built my online business, remarried and blended a stepfamily, chronicled paying off my husband’s debt, left a cult I was born into, bought a house and became a landlady, homeschooled for nearly 20 years, and I’m now living again as a divorced mom.
I stopped writing about parenting for the most part until my high-risk pregnancy to a 27 weeker preemie. After his birth, I struggled with depression, anxiety and PTSD, complicated by religious trauma syndrome.
I enjoy reading, writing, cooking (and eating!), going for walks, and spending time outdoors. I’m a wanna-be French girl, je rêve de France!
