Kelcie Huffstickler

Kelcie Huffstickler has a B.S. in Journalism from Arkansas State University and has written for a number of family publications and websites. She and her high-school-sweetheart hubby have been married for seven years and parents for four. They have two daughters, Eden and Selah, and sometimes feel like they’re swimming upstream in the toddler years. Kelcie’s husband is a firefighter, and she works part-time as a high school abstinence education instructor. Despite feeling overwhelmed by this stage of life, Kelcie is committed to intentional parenting and passing a heritage of faith to her children. She enjoys living among family in the safety of a small town and writes about it on her blog This Beautiful Inheritance.


Kelcie Says: “Hi y’all, I’m Kelcie. I’m a small town, southern girl through and through! My hubby, two girls, and I live a simple life with more family in a two mile radius than you thought possible! On most days, you can find me playing Cinderella, making “cheese sandwiches,” and pretending not to see the worst hiders ever in a game of hide-and-seek. We also enjoy popping in on my parents who live three blocks away and rounding up cousins for a play-date. During those rare moments of Mommy Time, I enjoy cups of coffee, writing, and a little Dr. Phil. I’m a far-from-perfect Mama but thankful for God’s Grace that covers me anyway.”

Backyard Campout

Above me the sky was sprinkled with stars. They seemed more abundant and a little brighter than usual. My arms were wrapped around my 5-year-old, who leaned into me as close as she could on the rickety bench of our picnic table. We warmed ourselves by the campfire and laughed hysterically as my husband told Continue »

Summer Bucket List

My girls and I have been having a blast this summer. I haven’t even given them a chance to utter the words “I’m bored” because I’ve been whisking them from playdates to swimming pools to Bible schools. And I’ve loved every second of it. I know some argue that a little boredom is good for Continue »
