I’m Erin, a Catholic wife and mother of five. And why yes, I do have my hands full as a homeschooling stay-at-home mom to Gabriel (10), Faith (8), Gianna (6), Roman (3), and Aidan (2). We also 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.
Michael and I love being in a Catholic marriage and family lay movement called Domestic Church. It’s been a real gamechanger for our marriage, and we now head up the Domestic Church movement in our diocese.
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 handsome baby boy. Since then, God has blessed Michael and me with four more precious babies and lots of adventures, which I’ve been blessed to share over the years through podcasting, radio, speaking and writing ministries. We now live back home in beautiful Louisiana, where the food is amazing and the babysitters are plenty.
My days as a homeschooling mom of five children under 11 are usually busy and often chaotic, but are always full of a belly laugh or two! I feel like a lot of my energy these days goes into keeping my peace and learning how to sail.
Christ’s peace and abiding joy be with you!
