Author Archive: Sarah Reinhard
You’re just as likely to find Sarah Reinhard hiding out back with a book as you are to discover her playing in the yard with a few farm animals (or wait--are those her kids?). She’s less enthusiastic about making dinner than she is about eating it, but she loves being a Catholic wife and mom (much though she struggles) and the kids sure are amusing.
She’s been happily married for eight years and counting, and she and her husband have three children. She has authored a number of books (see http://snoringscholar.com/my-books/) and writes pretty frequently at her blog, SnoringScholar.com.
In my recent reading, I’ve been reveling in R. Scott Hurd’s When Faith Feels Fragile: Help for the Wary, Weak, and Wandering (Pauline Books & Media, 2013). The chapters are short (read-in-5-minutes short) and yet, Hurd packs a punch. I’ve dog-eared and highlighted and longed to reprint large sections. Today, in light of the Advent coming […]
Tis the season. Everyone’s out shopping for that special something for everyone on their list. We are all busy, running around like worker bees, catching ourselves coming and going. There are Christmas programs and holiday recitals and parties and gatherings and a long list of things to do. In the midst of all of that, […]
I’m always looking for a good novel, and when I find one, I’m always eager to share about it. And in Erin McCole Cupp’s new novel, Don’t You Forget about Me, I have found a winner! This book has all the elements that make a book addictive: a compelling story told well with characters who […]
There are times when a book title grabs me and other times when it makes me roll my eyes. And then there are the times when it doesn’t matter what the title is because I see the author’s name. I’ll let you guess which combination of the above happened with Teresa Tomeo’s new release, God’s Bucket […]
October is both the month of the rosary and respect life month. Those two intentions are tied together intimately in my heart. It’s not such a stretch, though, when I look at what the rosary is about: human life in its most divine and perfect form. As we walk—or, in my case, stumble and plod—through the […]
According to my confessor and spiritual director, we all have habitual sins. Each of us has an area of weakness, and that’s where our personal tempters and/or the devil attack first. In fact, when we’ve talked about my habitual sin, he used the word “addiction.” I don’t know about you, but thinking of sin as […]
I have a love-hate relationship with the rosary. In fact, I consider myself Rosary Challenged. I used to think that being Rosary Challenged was a legitimate reason for not praying the rosary. “It’s just not the devotion for me,” I’d think, after another unsuccessful run at trying to pray it regularly. “I’ll try [insert any […]
I am so excited to see the Transformed in Love program, developed by the Archdiocese of Boston, being released and supported by Pauline Books & Media. From the press release: Transformed in Love is the end product of over six years of collaboration among a bishop, judicial vicar, canon lawyers, theologians, psychologists, priests, deacons, religious sisters, […]
