I’m a gluten-free girl with a passion for genealogy. My first car was a yellow VW Beetle. My parents are New Yorkers but I was born in Virginia and raised in North Carolina, making me a Northern American Hybrid. I grew up as part of the Squicciarini family, well-known around town due to my gregarious father. I spent a few years working for my grandfather and then transitioned to managing operations for the family business, Quo Vadis LLC.

As a teenager, I loved politics and dreamed about being the first female president of the United States. I chose an alias in case I was ever in witness protection. My best friend & I ran a detective agency where we made up secret codes and investigated our siblings. I never expected to become a minivan-driving homeschool mom, that’s for sure!

In March 2011 I married Gregory Aaron Bartos, and over the next ten years we were blessed with five precious children: Sophia Ruth {b. March 2012}, Zoe Esther {b. October 2013}, Aaron Henry {b. June 2015}, Eva Joelle {b. November 2017}, and Rachel Marie {b. October 2020}. My current career is a full-time position as chatelaine of our home and teacher at our Brookhaven Bible School. I love these #bartosberries with all my heart even though they keep me on my toes!

As a family, we are committed to living in accordance with Scripture. I chose the name torahgirl for this blog to express my goal of being a woman who loves God + keeps His commandments. I am continually grateful for God’s unmerited goodness to me.

Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife…
Joyful music leads us sunward
 in the triumph song of life.

  1. Oh I am blessed to have come across your blog. Mazel Tov on the blessing of your beloved in utero! I look forward to reading more about it. May you have a delightful Shabbat!

    1. Thank you Emily!! Shabbat shalom to you as well! And congratulations on YOUR new arrival – how exciting! Ishiyah is a beautiful baby. =) I just read the story of her birth – it’s so encouraging to hear about a calm, successful “overdue” home birth! Raspberry will be my first, so I am learning as much as I can from others. =)
