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 2004. 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. She is the managing editor of ShePosts, an online news magazine for women in social media, as well as the editor of Mama Manifesto, a collaborative parenting blog. Kristen indulges in her love of mocking celebrities at MamaPop and writes about weightier issues (heh) at Curvy Girl Guide. She is also a columnist at ConversantLife, an online community dedicated to faith and culture, and at the OC Register where she writes a parenting advice column. 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.
