About Happy Little Homemaker.com


Looking for a good book?  Or perhaps a good Catholic book for your family?   Are you looking for homeschool resources for young children (K/1 and under)?  Or maybe ideas to help make homemaking a little easier?  Trying to make family life a little more special?  If so, you’ve come to the right place and I’m so glad you stopped by!!

Here on Happy Little Homemaker, you will find articles about the big 5 priorities in every Christian woman’s life — God/Catholicism, taking care of yourself, marriage, parenting/homeschooling and everything related to home management.

I aim to post 2-4 times a week and you can find everything and anything related to keeping the home, especially the people in it, here.   I write about Catholicism, books, homeschooling, green(ish) living & frugality, healthy living, homemaking, cooking REAL food, family life and I even share a few printables now and then!

Here are a few series or posts that might be useful to you:

About Jen Steed

My name is Jen Steed and I am a Catholic wife and mother to two beautiful girls, with another little one due to arrive in June 2013.   A voracious reader and life-long learner, my goal is to read, learn, and do, and then share it with you!    I love to write, read, and I consider myself expert in finding the shortest, easiest or best way to do something.   I also love teaching my daughters and love technology — as long as it’s useful :).

A contributor to the recently published book The Catholic Mom’s Prayer Companion, you can find all my other writing & more on Google+ or on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook.   You could also email me at jen (at) happylittlehomemaker (dot) com.


Here are 20 random things you might not know about me:

  1. I’m a planner addict.   Sometimes I try 3 or 4 different ones in a years time.
  2. I used to have 2 personal trainer certifications.
  3. I am a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, too.
  4. I love dressing up my little girls (who doesn’t?)!
  5. My husband and I own a business – Advanced Computer Solutions.
  6. I do the content marketing and coordinate the other marketing.
  7. And I really like it!
  8. I love the traditional Latin Mass!
  9. And my parish priest, Father Libby.
  10. And Catholic Radio.
  11. I do my laundry all at once.
  12. I like to organize but hate to clean.
  13. I like to dress fashionably but only seem to do it when it’s cold outside.
  14. We love to travel and went to Bora Bora and Indonesia (pre-kids).
  15. Now we go to Disney.  Every year, if I get my way :).  My goal is to stay in every resort at least once.  I’ve only stayed in 3 so far.
  16. I’m nearly 100% Polish.   And 6th generation American.   My hometown has a HIGH concentration of Polish people.
  17. I’m totally uncoordinated and hubby and I quit dance lessons because we wanted to stay married.
  18. I have a hard time following, both physically and mentally.
  19. I love aqua.  It’s my signature color.
  20. I talk non-stop when I’m sleepy.   So I think I’ll stop here :).
