About Me


My mission is to encourage women to keep on, keeping on with a simple purposeful life!  We only get one life so we have to make room so we can do what matters with those that matter.  I will help you simplify and streamline your daily life so you can maximize your time!

Why Simple Purposeful Living?

When I first became a mom I worked full time and was overwhelmed by the opportunities and responsibilities associated with the many hats I wore daily.  When I started to be more purposeful in how I approached my day, I found I had breathing room to enjoy my family and all life had to offer.

Purposeful living is about being intentional in making daily choices.  Those little daily, seemingly unimportant, choices add up to the way you live your life.  Living on purpose helps us manages daily routines and commitments in such a way that there is breathing room to enjoy the best life has to offer!  Breathing room to be spontaneous, go on adventures, spend time with those you love, curl up with a good book or whatever you choose to do!

The Person behind the blog

I am Erin, saved by grace, wife to Scott for almost 12 years, mom of 3 biological children.  Solon, our son is 9.  Vera, our oldest daughter is 7 and our youngest daughter, Lucy, is 3.  We are also in the process of adopting our son from China and hope to bring him home soon.

I am a teacher by degree(s) but hung that hat u, for now,w to work from home.  I fell in love with writing back in 10th-grade yearbook class when my teacher taught us the power of words.  Ever since I was little I had many words both on my brain and rolling off the tongue.  Some things never change.  I moved around a lot as a kid (11 houses before I left home and became the Mrs.) and so though I was horribly shy at first, I learned to overcome the awkward and say “hello”.

Faith is at the core of who I am!  I accepted Jesus as my savior at the age of 22 in premarital counseling and have been running the race with a smile on my face ever since (although I fall face first from time to time), I am thankful for the redeeming grace of God (John 3:16).  You can read more about my testimony here.

Coffee and sparkling lime water are my go to drinks and I have never met a french fry I don’t love.  Let’s be honest Mc Donald’s has got french fries figured out!

I am curious by nature and may ask you 20 questions when we meet.  We love to find everyday adventure as a family and travel both near and far as time and money allow!

We love football in the fall, decorating for the seasons, visiting our family spread out across the USA and spending lots of time at our family’s lake cabin in the summer.  I am often found behind the wheel most afternoons carting kids to activities.  I love to hang out with friends and family, listen to podcasts, read blogs and books, workout (so I can eat dessert), shop (on the rare chance I can), watch TV (Friends, This Is Us, The Crown and When Calls the Heart are favorites).
