About Me

The short story, I am a stay at home, home schooling,born again mommy to 4 boys, and 1 disabled girl. I have been married to the love of my life for 11 years.

The long version:
I grew up in a poor, single mother home with my 2 brothers. I was on my way to becoming another statistic, a product of my environment, but then something amazing changed my life.
When I was 19, I became a Christian, and my life changed. I became a born again believer, and began my new life.

In 2002, I married my dream man, after only a few months of dating. He was and still is everything I ever wanted, and I am still head over heals in love!

In 2003, we were blessed with our first child, Little P. 3 months later, I was pregnant again. Exactly 365 days after the birth of our first son, we welcomed another, Little E. 
We were blessed with 2 more boys, Little S in 2007, and Little A in 2008.

People would ask me if we wanted to try again for a girl. We were praying to see if we were complete with our family, and then God blessed us again with my Princess, Little C. 
When Little C was 6 months, I knew something was wrong with Little C, and when she was 15 months we received confirmation that she is disabled. 

I love my literal handful, and can't imagine life with out them. Each has their own quirks, and struggles, and I decided to begin blogging to share what I have learned, and am still learning.

 There are many blogs out there, but I try to be different. I want a place where I can share what I have learned, my struggles, successes, and try to help others. Whether it is product reviews, rants, giveaways, or deals, I put my heart in my posts, and hope you will join me and my handful.


  1. It's so great to learn more about you. Love your blog, and it's such a pleasure working with you.

  2. 5 kids must be a handful! I can see why you named your blog that. I have a cousin who's wife is a stay at home mom and also does home schooling and she has 4 kids. Two boys and two girls so her handful is similar to yours. I have one child, a daughter and she is all grown up and recently got married. I can't wait for her to have little ones to light up the world. It is so great that you are still head over heels in love with your husband!!! Although you must be overwhelmed and super busy it must all be quite fulfilling also! Thanks for sharing your story with us!
