Hi, I’m Mary, a headcovering, homeschooling, modest dressing Christian lady. I have 2 grown daughters, 2 teenage sons, 1 baby granddaughter, 4 fat cats, 2 fat dogs and 1 beloved husband. Brad and I have been married for 20 years. I used to own Hillbilly Housewife but felt the Lord telling me it was time to let it go. Now I own Frugal Abundance and feel it suits me better these days.

I’ve written extensively on homemaking, modesty, biblical submission and headcovering over the past decade. I’ve been published in magazines, both print and online. I’ve done a radio interview and been approached by half a dozen different producers about appearing on TV. So far I haven’t found a show I was willing to associate my name with, but if it ever happens, I’ll let everyone know.

I’m 38, have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a metabolic disorder that makes one gain weight and makes it especially difficult to lose weight. I’m on an eternal quest to reach a healthy weight and God willing, I intend to reach my goal.
