About Me

My name is Staci Eastin. I am a Christian, a wife, a mother, a homeschooler, and a writer. I live in Southeast Missouri, and we worship and serve at Cape Bible Chapel.

My book, The Organized Heart: A Woman’s Guide to Conquering Chaos was published by Cruciform Press in March of 2011. (That makes it sound so easy. Tra-la-la and Hey! I wrote a book. Don’t be fooled.) I’ve spent the last couple of years working on a novel, but the novel and I are currently taking a break from each other.

When I’m not writing or driving one of my kids somewhere, I enjoy reading, knitting, jogging very slowly, and watching the St. Louis Cardinals. I also help behind the scenes with social media and marketing for Cruciform Press.

What is this blog about?

I try to post every Wednesday, though that doesn’t always happen. Throughout the week I post links to other articles I’ve enjoyed and book reviews. For my posts, I write about Christianity, books, and life in general.

Sometimes I try to keep it light. I also write about stuff my kids do, but I do that less and less as they get older and desire privacy.

I also explore my youngest-child issues,

I do book reviews (some positive, some not so positive).

And whatever I happen to be mulling at the time.

I also post every other Monday at Out of the Ordinary. I occasionally contribute to the women’s channel for The Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.

What’s in a name? When I first starting blogging (way back in 2004, when you had to explain to people what a blog actually was), I gave the members of my family pseudonyms. This was never meant to deceive, as real-life friends and family read the blog from the start. I simply hadn’t sorted out how much I should reveal. I mean, do my children want future employers to be able to read about the Stomach Flu of 2006? Now the pseudonyms have kind of stuck. Especially Theodore, the one I use for my husband. Sorry if that confuses you. I only have one husband and three kids.
