When you’re trapped in a cycle of financial frustration, and you feel like you’ve tried everything only to end up with more month than money yet again, More Than Just Making It is your promise and pathway to thriving again.
Take it from someone who’s been there. Erin Odom grew up in Upper Middle Class America, but was thrown into low-income living during the economic crash. She was a stay-at-home mom, her husband was supporting the family on a teacher’s salary, and despite the fact that they had no debt to their name, they were scrambling to make ends meet.
Suddenly Erin found herself standing in line for food stamps, turning down play dates because she couldn’t afford the gas, and ultimately walking into bankruptcy court in the eighth month of her third pregnancy.
More Than Just Making It tells the story of their breaking point, as well as the triumph of their comeback. It took hard work, creativity, and faith in God’s provision to reset their bank account as well as their hearts, but ultimately they found a new way to thrive and freedom from financial anxiety.
You can do the same.
More Than Just Making It will encourage readers to rise above their circumstances, empower them with money-saving tips, and reimagine the good life as God designed it outside the myth of the American Dream.

My healthy living journey started when I had children. I wanted what was best for them, so we began making changes in our diet and in our home.
This book was born out of those changes. In it, I walk you through every room in your house so that you can discover how to make your home a healthy home. I break down specific items you can use and provide general suggestions that you can apply immediately. My hope is that you will able to make your family healthier one step at a time.
It wasn’t long into becoming a mother when I realized that God was going to use motherhood to shape me, mold me, weave me into the person He wanted me to be. It hasn’t always been easy. It hasn’t always been fun. It definitely hasn’t always been glamorous. More than anything, perhaps, it’s been humbling. But the tapestry He’s making in me–and in you–is beautiful.
I wrote the essays of The Woven Heart during my first six years of motherhood—those years when the days were long and the nights were even longer. The years of late-night nursings, round-the-clock diaper changes, scrubbing potty training messes out of the carpet, and wiping boogers and spit up from both my clothes and my children’s.
I pray you will be encouraged and blessed by these words from someone still in the trenches when I wrote them. I hope you will laugh, cry, and, most of all, see God’s weaving of your heart through your motherhood journey as well.
