Hi there, I'm Kristy...

Kristy Howard | writer and editor at Kristys Cottage blog

... (more-than) slightly introverted pastor's wife; homeschooling mom and life-long learner; dreamer and writer by heart.

My friends typically think of me as a "quiet" type, but my mind is always busy.

I'm an INTJ female, over-thinker, and a natural problem-solver.  I love finding practical solutions to just about everything, from curriculum and time management to dressing well and self-care.

I believe that God put me on this earth to live and love well.  At the end of the day, I hope something I've written has inspired someone else to do that too.  

I've been sharing my thoughts and solutions on this blog since 2007.  If you love to read, I hope you'll pull up a chair and stay a while!

What I've been writing about lately...

Notes from readers…

Back in 2008 I found myself searching the internet for low cost meals I could cook from scratch. I stumbled upon your blog, and felt God answer so many prayers. At the time I had people tell me that it would be hard, if not impossible for me to be a stay-at-home mom when my husband and I had children. I read your posts and learned SO MUCH about how to lead a frugal lifestyle and be a stay-at-home mom. -Jessica
