I’m Erin, a Catholic wife and mother of four. And why yes, I do have my hands full as a homeschooling stay-at-home mom to Gabriel (7), Faith (5), Gianna (4), and Roman (9 months). We are also blessed to have a new baby on the way (due November 2017!) and 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 also used to be a fashion model, and my God pursued me on the streets of New York and led me back to Him.
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 two more precious babies, lots of adventures, a media 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 done many radio interviews and even co-hosted a weekly radio show for a while. I’ve also been writing for CatholicMom.com for a few years, and you can find all of those articles here.
In 2015, I started my own podcast, “The Right Heart”, but I’m taking a break from podcasting (and blogging) for a little while as I settle into life as a mother of four (why, hello Roman Anthony, born August 2016).
Christ’s peace and abiding joy be with you!
