Birmingham Moms Blog :: Introducing Kerra



I was raised in a small town northwest of Birmingham where rolling meadows, white picket fences, and the friendly waves of neighbors weren’t constructs but realities. Growing up, I cherished memories of sweet summer days flanked by Southern grits in the morning, sun tea and watermelon on the picnic table at lunch, and s’mores over the campfire at night.

We recently moved to a quiet wooded oasis in the middle of our bustling city. Now those sweet summer days can become a reality for our children as well. I love that Birmingham offers rich cultural experiences and all the benefits of a metropolis while still boasting the Southern hometown feel.


I have a great love for the nations and have travelled extensively. Because of that, I didn’t make time to settle down until my mid-thirties. I met my husband, Chris, at church in 2013. We married in March 2015, and within three short years, had three children under three years old. 

Having little ones has reminded me of the most essential life lessons. Children continually forgive, don’t stress over the little things, see every day as a new day, are blind to differences, love others, and always have fun. Sometimes I just want to lean back and let them teach me instead of me teaching them. 


I am elated to share my thoughts and experiences with you through Birmingham Moms Blog. I am part of several mom groups, and I cherish the wisdom imparted to me through each of them. Wading through motherhood alone should not be an option in today’s society. We are living through a modern cultural paradigm where blogs are just as much a source of communication as are texts and emails. Connectivity creates community, and I look forward to becoming part of yours.

Kerra was raised in a small Alabama town named Corner but finds her heart often wandering to the farthest corners of the world. She served in the Himalayas and therefore has a deep love for Asia and the international population as a whole. After becoming a stay-at-home mom, she volunteered with Perspectives, a study program to help others understand God's love for the nations and always has her doors open to the international community of Birmingham. One of the things she loves most about the city is the diversity mixed with Southern hospitality. She married her husband, Chris, and had three children under three by their fourth year of marriage. She has a passion for teaching, loves to serve others, and has a knack for entertaining. Her perfect evening would consist of a midsummer night by the pool. There's nothing like the delighted giggles of little ones surrounded by fireflies twinkling, bats scurrying overhead, toads croaking their percussive melody, and the resident owl hooting his nightly chorus. In her free time, she loves to travel with her family, explore the great outdoors, or read a good book with a really strong latte in hand.
