staff-rectangle-9Jennifer Holsted is a wife of 14 years and a mom of 13 years. She works at her church as director of children’s programs – a job that requires great skill at pulling loose teeth, laughing at knock knock jokes, praying for sick dogs and keeping the candy buckets stocked.

She spends way too much of her time watching Doctor Who, thinking about cleaning the house, and apologizing to her husband for leaving the oven turned on … again. Her favorite thing to do is sit on the back deck with family and friends while her husband is cooking something delicious on the smoker.

Her family shares their North Little Rock home with one really hyper dog and one cat, who they suspect is secretly plotting their demise.

You can find Jennifer online on Twitter.

We found ourselves getting all nostalgic over Jennifer’s sweet story – we can’t wait for you to hear it too!

Allison Herndon remembers most major events in her life by what she ate at them.  She’s a teacher-turned-mom of four and can usually be found with a book in one hand and a baby in the other.  She is a wanna-be writer and maybe-one-day blogger (if she can get caught up with the laundry first).  She enjoys baking, being outside, telling funny stories, and trying new restaurants with her husband.  Although she’s not from around these parts, Allison is a 10-year resident of Central Arkansas who would like to thank the South for pimento cheese, barbecue, and the word y’all. You can find Allison online on Twitter. Allison had us in hysterics […]

Melissa McCurdy is a mother of 3; wife of 1; a lover of football, politics, food, travel, walking, theatre and all things literary.  She’s without talent in most typical Mormon activities – she doesn’t paint, sew, craft, scrapbook or quilt. She shelves books for a living and could spend hours in used bookstores.  Her youngest was born with a congenital heart defect and had open heart surgery at 5 weeks old. She knows more about Children’s Hospitals than she ever wanted too. One of the highlights of her life was attending the first inauguration of President Barack Obama, primarily because she had better seats than Oprah.  And when she grows up, she wants to become the first […]

Haven’t heard Kendra Skagg’s name before? Google her! It’s best not to get in the way of this fierce advocate for orphans and special needs children. She took on Russian law in 2012 and won. She’s a lover of life who sees the beauty in what others would view as unattractive or unlovable; a person of ingenuity, goodwill, and fortitude, intellectually driven and determined to make a better way for those less able, in her home, classroom, community and worldwide through her organization Polina’s Promise. She’s been described as deliciously impulsive, slightly nutty and “amazeballs.”  She denies having a cape. You can find Kendra online at her blog. We really enjoyed hearing Kendra’s perspective on her […]
