New Home, New Name, Same Me


Nine years or so ago, I started blogging. Shoved to Them became a second home to me. Its name was inspired by a quote from my Nanna, may she rest in peace, who looked at the rebellious girl in front of her and warned,
“One day God is going to have enough of your foolishness and demand that you hit your knees before Him. You can either do it willingly, or He will put His hand upon your head and shove you to them.”

I’m the 40-something-ish wife of my beloved Computer Guy.

I’m the adoring and incredibly proud mom of nine children…two saints…seven in training.

I’m my brothers’ sister and my parents’ daughter.

I’m a devout Catholic, an avid political junkie, able debater, aspiring home-maker, amazing friend, and I make the meanest Chicken Fried Steak you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating.

I’m a homeschooling guru, a writing addict, a sometimes public-speaker, and an advocate for staying true to the person God created you to be.

I can’t live in a house with white walls, sing Billy Joel songs while I wash the dishes, will read anything you put in my hands, and am completely obsessed with rhinestones and cute shoes.

I am just like moms the whole world over, and then some.
