About Us


My name is September McCarthy, and I am so glad that you stopped by for a visit. In the sacred walls of my words here.

I share the story of how the Lord has worked in my life, and does each and every day. We are a family of 12, and have a lot of fun together… some days you may read of our crazy enterprises, and other days, I may share about the trials of the week. But, either way, I hope you enjoy One September Day as much as I experience it!

If you are inquiring more about my speaking, please read more here:

    I am always in awe, of people who have more than a handful of kids. I only have one, and I’m exhausted! I can’t wait to dig in to your blog.

    I’m Kristy, pastor’s wife and homeschooling mom of 5 sweet (and busy!) blessings. I discovered you via your book, Hula Hoop Girl, which I discovered in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle last year. 🙂

    Your blog is beautiful. Your family is beautiful. I’ll be reading more!

    I just heard you on the God Centered Mom podcast. Your testimony of motherhood moved me so deeply but, most importantly, cast my gaze to Jesus. I’m a new mom and have no idea what the future will hold for my growing family, what joys or sorrows, but I am encouraged by moms like you who have been so beautifully refined by Jesus. Thank you!

    Hello. I’ve seen photos of you (the wedding) on Instagram through a mutual friend of ours. I’m preparing (whatever that means!) to come to my first Declare Conference. Its a very, very last minute decision and I’ve been stalking the FB Declare community trying to get to know everyone. You have a lovely family and blog. Can’t wait to read more.

    Hello! I have four children, all the same age. When I look at your photo, I no longer feel as busy! I wanted to read more about your story, but the link in “just click here to read” says the post is no longer there.

    Hi September,

    I had met you quite a few years ago at TGiF, can’t remember if it was in BF Weslyan or Maranatha. Just reading some of your blogs truly bless me. You have such a beautiful family and everything that you have all gone thru, God has blessed you tremendously!! I look forward to enjoying and reading more of your stories! Thank you so much!
