About Me



Ok, so you’d like to get to know a little more about me, huh? 🙂  I just got married May 2015 to the love of my life and in our world faith & family are first! I am so thankful and blessed that God has brought this man into my life! He has completely restored my faith in love. He is our family’s rock and faith foundation. He prays with us and for us and does everything he can to bring us closer to God. God really does have a plan and “special someone” for everyone, you just have to be patient and wait on His timing! My husband has two beautiful children whom I will always love and protect as my own. They have huge hearts, love God, love to learn and love to be silly. My life would not be complete without them <3

My husband recently asked me why I love blogging so much and at first I wasn’t quite sure how to answer. Then I thought about a blogging event that I attended in Tampa and was able to share this story with him ~

“I attended the SmartMom Road Solutions blogging event being broadcast live via video feed and hosted by the very talented Maria Bailey of Mom Select. As we were going around the room introducing ourselves to the blogosphere, I was stopped mid-introduction as soon as she heard my blog name. She then proceeded to tell me that someone had told her about how much my blog had helped her military family save money thru some tough times.” I was flabbergasted! I didn’t even know anyone really paid attention to what I wrote. The story that was shared with me that day has touched my life and heart forever!

I blog because I may be able to help one more family. I may never know whose life I’ve been able to touch, but the chance that I might be able to is enough to keep me going. To this day I don’t know who it was that shared their story with Maria, but to you I say “Thank you!” Thank you for sharing your story, because it keeps me going and makes all the headaches and up’s and down of internet life worth it!

Where is Frugal Southern Living going in the future? I originally started this blog as a coupon and money saving website, but knowing that I have the ability to be heard and the opportunity to touch families hearts and lives, I am going to use Frugal Southern Living as my ministry. You will still see your awesome coupon deals and giveaways, but now you’ll see it mixed in with other blog posts on faith, family, fitness, recipes, crafts, travel and anything else that may come to mind!

My #1 goal is to increase my subscriber base by 2017, so if you think its great ~ feel free to share with your friends and family! The more people that read and subscribe to my blog ~ the bigger and better opportunities that I can bring you! I do this all for you, but I need your help to get there!
