About Me

Welcome to Life on a Back Road!  I'm Carrie, a 40-something mom, happily married to my Jim for 19 years.  We have four precious children: Sam, Julia, Josiah, and Ari.  We love Jesus and desire to honor Him with our lives!

I started this blog in 2005, as a way to chronicle my life as a new mom, and to keep up better with our family and friends in faraway places.  Blogging turned out to be a really fun outlet for me, and I've enjoyed meeting new friends along the way!  I love to write about the things I'm learning, the things I'm passionate about, and lots of random stuff from our lives.  As time has gone by, I've blogged less and less, but I still share here from time to time, and you can also find me on Instagram under the name lifeonabackroad. 

Thanks for stopping by!
