A Day in the Life of Stacy: Homeschool Mom Who Asked for Help

By Stacy Karen, Contributing Writer Each year when I start to think about writing a Day in the Life post, I’m a little disappointed that I don’t have my life more together. I keep thinking I’ll be really fancy and organized next time I write one of these, but it hasn’t happened yet! If nothing else, I’ve slowed down a lot over the past few years, and I take that as some type of accomplishment. Even if it came as a result of chronic illness. I […]

A Day in the Life of Ann: Mom of 6 {3 Boys, 3 Girls, 5 Teens}

By Ann Timm, Contributing Writer To prepare for this post, I read through several of the other writers’ previous Day in the Life posts to get an idea of how they are formatted and written as this is my first of this series. I wasn’t prepared for the flood of emotions that came forth as I relived memories of snuggling up to my little ones with Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, staying in jammies on rainy days and jumping in mud puddles. My […]

Simple Pleasures: A Day in the Life of Elsie, New Mom

By Elsie Callender, Contributing Writer I’m just entering the stage of life I always looked forward to the most: motherhood. I’ve dreamed about these days for a long time, and in April of this year our son was born. Life is so very different now, but it’s beautiful and full of simple abundance. I’ve had to learn how to hold my plans loosely, because I never know what Little Dude and the day will bring. Unpredictability is good for me, though, as I’ve held to my […]

A Day in the Life of Hilary: A Work-At-Home Mom of 2

This month we’re sharing our usual Day in the Life series, where each of our writers let’s you have a peek into their everyday lives. I love these posts, because they help you get to know the team here at KOTH, and to peel back the curtain a bit on our lives, and hopefully show that bloggers are just regular women and moms, like you. :) By Hilary Bernstein, Contributing Writer I’ve been excited to chronicle another Day in the Life. Last year you followed my […]

A Day in the Life of a Social Media Manager

By Meg Bateman, KOTH Community Manager When people learn that I’m a Social Media Manager, they think it’s really awesome and I probably live some glamorous life of vacationing and doing little work beyond posting memes all day. In reality, I work just as much (if not more) than most… the only big difference is my field is changing daily (Facebook, if you’re reading this – please stop changing!!!), and I get to wear yoga pants instead of a pantsuit. Many of you are probably […]

A Day in the Life of Andrea: My Daughter Leaves for College in One Week!

By Andrea Green, Contributing Writer This day in the life took place one week before I leave to take my 18-year-old to college. Of all the contributors here on Keeper of the Home, I think I have the oldest kiddos. So I’ve tried to pack this post with tips I’ve learned about parenting and homemaking when you have older children. 5:42 a.m. wake-up: Usually I am a morning person and I would pop right out of bed. But today I am dragging. It was a miserable […]

A Day in the Life: Stacy {Mom of 3 Striving for Change While Living in Grace}

By Stacy Karen, Contributing Writer This is my third year writing a day in the life post for Keeper of the Home. And I must say, it feels strange! It’s caused me to reflect over how my life has changed in the past few years and I’m wrestling with a little frustration over the fact that I’m not changing as fast as I’d like to.  When my health fell apart last year (I ended up being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease), my home suffered too. It’s […]

A Day in the Life: Rebecca {Mom of 2 and Work-at-Home Virtual Assistant}

By Rebecca, Contributing Writer There really is no such thing as a “typical” day in my house. I grew up without a mom, so becoming a mother four years ago was quite challenging to me in that I didn’t have an example of my own to emulate. This resulted in a kind of go-with-my-gut approach to parenting that works well for me some days and not so much other days. We also went from a one-kid household to a two-kid household seven months ago after the birth of […]
