Hi, I’m Eric Williams. I live in Des Moines, Iowa, with my beautiful wife, Kelsey, and 2-year-old daughter, Rooney.

Words of Williams was born in 2010 to document a staycation I took with my wife, and I continued to write about marriage, faith, money and, eventually, parenting. Through blogging, I discovered a passion for helping young families make a financial plan and get on a budget.

If you’re interested in chatting about your personal finances, I’d love to help! Shoot me an email at eric@wordsofwilliams.com.

More About the Williams’

This site used to be a family blog, where Kelsey and I would write about all things Williams’. We’ve since separated the blogs into a few different spaces and Words of Williams is now about personal finances and intentional family life. Kelsey writes at Snappy Casual, and we blog about our home and DIY projects at the Rockstar Ranch. But, below you can get to know my family a little better through some archived posts that Kelsey and I have written.
