Hi there, I’m Taylor!

I’m a wife, a mom of one and a firm believer in God and Jesus. I also really love books. Blogging has been a passion of mine for several years now, and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to write every day.


 a little about me:

I lived in Utah my entire life (besides my mission to California) and only just moved to Colorado at the end of 2017.

Binge watching tv is super fun 😉 I’ve recently been loving Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, and Bones.

I’m a stay at home mom and full-time blogger. I get to be at home with my one-year-old and I absolutely love it!

I’m a huge Disneyland fan. I grew up going often and I can’t wait to go again with Von.

Pizza, french fries, and popcorn are my favorite things to eat.

Books are my passion and I love talking about them and reading them!



About the Blog


Taylor Epperson: finding joy in motherhood and books is a lifestyle blog dedicated to having real talk about motherhood, life, and mental health. And about finding joy in the journey.

My blogging career started when I was 15. Back then it wasn’t really a career, but rather a way to write about my life and keep my family and friends updated. In the past three years, I started to love blogging even more. Blogging has become a huge passion of mine and after a little break in 2018, I launched this lifestyle blog.

After years of blogging, I realized that I could never pick a name that I liked for my blog. I changed it so many times from 2014 – 2018 that when I launched this blog, I knew I wanted something that would stick. Something that would cover the brand that I wanted to create. I finally decided on my name because then I could make my blog whatever I wanted and it could be something that can grow and change as I do.

Here you’ll find lots of #reallife chats about faith, motherhood, mental health and so much more. I write about things that I’m passionate about and I hope that through my words you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for.


The Faith Project. Every Sunday you’ll find new faith-related posts that are meant to encourage, uplift, and inspire you. Over the past few years, I’ve struggled to keep my faith strong, and I have created a space where we can learn and grow together. These posts will give you encouragement and help you find new ways to strengthen your faith and keep it centered in Jesus Christ.


Books. Reading has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. For a while, in 2018 I tried to have a separate blog just for books. It was fun for a while, but then it was too hard to manage more than one blog. Maybe someday I’ll have a separate blog for books, but until then you can expect book lists, book reviews, and lots of chatting about books!


Mental Health. In 2016, I was officially diagnosed with anxiety, then later re-diagnosed with PTSD that was causing the anxiety. While I don’t talk about my mental health as I used you, you can expect to see posts about self-care, coping mechanisms, and my story from time to time. I share more about my mental health on Instagram @tayepperson.


Family + Motherhood. I love my family and being a mom, so occasionally I’ll share a post about motherhood, marriage, or family. It’s not my main focus on this blog, but if you want to read more posts that are family related, just let me know!


Finance. As of 2019, we’re starting to take control of our finances. We’re getting out of debt and learning how to save. I’ll be documenting our journey throughout the year.


Blogging + Social Media. love all things blogging and social media. In January of 2019, I finally started writing about blogging and social media. As I said before I’m passionate about helping you grow your blog and social media. Course + ebook coming soon!


I am so happy to have you here!
