About

Hi, I’m Erin!

I’m married to Curtis, we have four crazy kids (2 boys, 2 girls aged 6, 8, 10 & 15) and we live in America’s Heartland in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  I’m an introverted Enneagram 8w7 who runs on coffee, Jesus and peace.  A couple Fun Facts about me – I’m a lefty who can touch her nose with her tongue!

I started A Purposeful Mom because even in the midst of this crazy Coronoavirus pandemic, our family has been able to thrive and grow closer together. Earlier in our marriage, our family struggled and was overwhelmed with the chaos and frustrations of raising kids and having a messy, unorganized household, but we’ve been so blessed these last few months even in the midst of an uncertain time. Curtis and I really try to parent with purpose, and I really feel like our ability to enjoy and grow during quarantine is due to our intentionality with parenting. Our ultimate parenting goal is to raise emotionally healthy kids who are contributing members of society (most days we succeed, but some days, oh man!).

To do that, we’ve developed some systems and routines to help families eliminate the chaos, and I share those things here on A Purposeful Mom.  Our household runs like clockwork, my days are peaceful, and we actually enjoy our kids now instead of being constantly frustrated with them!  I know our insight can help your family and household be less overwhelming for you too, and my hope is that you are able to start thriving with us during this pandemic!
