I’m Erin, a Catholic wife and mother of four (with baby #5 due November 2017). And why yes, I do have my hands full as a homeschooling stay-at-home mom to Gabriel (7), Faith (6), Gianna (4), and Roman (1). We are also blessed to have one sweet baby already in Heaven: Kolbe.
I’m a lifelong Southern belle and cradle Catholic, and I like my tea sweet, my clothes pretty, my coffee iced, and my crawfish boiled. I got married in 2008 to my husband Michael, who says it was love at first campout for him (it took me a little longer). We love our summer camp love story.
I started Humble Handmaid in 2009. I was a new wife and mother living hundreds of miles away from family, so I started a blog to post pictures of my gorgeous baby boy. Since then, God has blessed Michael and me with four more precious babies, lots of adventures, a blogging, podcasting and radio ministry that has grown beyond what I ever imagined, and a few curve balls. We now live back home in beautiful Louisiana, where the food is amazing and the babysitters are plenty.
In addition to blogging, I’ve been involved with local Catholic radio for several years, even co-hosting a weekly show for a while. I am excited to have started this summer writing and producing a one-minute programming segment called “The Catholic Mom Minute” for my local Catholic radio station.
In 2015, I started my own podcast, “The Right Heart.”
Christ’s peace and abiding joy be with you!
