Rage Against the Minivan


Kristen is the mom of four children within four years via birth and adoption, and has been blogging at Rage Against the Minivan as a coping skill since 2006. If you are looking for a blog with great ideas for kids, amazing craft inspiration, scrapbooking help, and stunning photography, then AWESOME. There are a lot of those blogs out there. You should go find them. Here, you might find musings about the impact of the skinny jean on Kristen's self-esteem, her tendency to spill food on her laptop, and her inappropriate crush on Jon Stewart. She also indulges in sleep-deprived rants about parenting, poop, adoption, politics, race, religion, social justice, and various other subjects that her mother warned her not to discuss in public.

Kristen is a Marriage and Family Therapist, a freelance writer, and a musical theater geek. In addition to her own blog, Kristen is a regular contributor to Disney's parenting site Babble, as well as to Huffington Post and OC Family Magazine. She is the managing editor of ShePosts, an online news magazine for women in social media. She previously founded Mama Manifesto, a collaborative parenting blog. Previously, Kristen has been known to indulge in her love of mocking pop culture at MamaPop and wrote about weightier issues (heh) at Curvy Girl Guide. She is also a columnist at ConversantLife, an online community dedicated to faith and culture. Kristen likes to waste time on Twitter at @kristenhowerton.

In the spring of 2010, Kristen lost her long and passionate battle against the minivan. It now sits in her driveway covered in crushed cheerios and remnants of her self-esteem.
