Hi there! I'm Katie. I started blogging in 2009 when I was a brand-new mom stuck in the house with a tiny baby who loved to nap. Three additional kids, eleven years and a new career later, I have more to do and post less frequently, but I still find writing to be cheaper than therapy. 

Most days I can be found in the comfort (or the confines...depends on the day) of my home, feeding my people, homeschooling my kids, trying to stay on top of laundry and dishes and oh yes, working in my spare moments.

Blogging crazily enough turned into a side gig creating digital content. The fact that I can stay home, homeschool my kids, and provide financially by producing content that encourages, God has been kind to me.

If you found me because of either the Coffee + Crumbs podcast or Wire Talk with Karen Stubbs - hello! Feel free to reach out via email - k.leipprandt at gmail dot com with any professional inquiries.

Becoming a mother turned my life inside out and rocked my world like nothing I've ever experienced. Crazy Joy is a personal chronicle of the highs and the lows, the good and the bad - this is where I write it down. Instead of constantly striving to smooth over the rough edges of my life, I have come to believe that there is something sacred to be embraced amidst the craziness in the life I am living.

With Crazy Joy,
