About the Author

Sarah Reinhard is a Catholic wife, mom and author whose nose is probably in a book if she's not scraping something off of her shoes. Her latest book is A Catholic Mother's Companion to Pregnancy: Walking with Mary from Conception to Baptism. Check out all of her books at http://sarahreinhard.com/writing/my-books/.

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.

A Novel about Same Sex Attraction from a Catholic? – Interview with Dena Hunt

In The Lion’s Heart (2nd ed, Full Quiver Publishing, 2014), Dena Hunt tackles a topic that’s hot and that gets people talking in loud tones at times: same sex attraction. She does it in a way that’s not preachy, that’s good writing, and that’s gut-wrenchingly honest. While I loved the book, I didn’t necessarily love reading it. This is a […]

Chime Travelers: Meet the Saints and Travel Vicariously

Finding out that CatholicMom.com founder and writer extraordinaire Lisa Hendey was releasing the first two books in her new middle grade series was like getting a Christmas present that’s lasted for a few months. I had my first look at them a few months ago, when Hendey and her editor asked me to endorse them. I had my latest look […]

One of My New Favorite Podcasts: Good Things Radio

When I heard that Jennifer Willits, from The Catholics Next Door and New Evangelizers, was starting a podcast on her own, I was waiting online to download it. After I listened to the first episode, I checked to see if there was another episode yet. And that’s how it’s been for the last few months since Jennifer and Brooke started Good […]

From One Blessed Father to Another: Randy Hain on Special Children, Blessed Fathers

Randy Hain writes books at a pace that most of us try to read them. (I’m convinced he doesn’t sleep. He assures me he does. I have thus concluded that I need HIS coffee…) Randy sent me an advance copy of his newly released book, Special Children,  Blessed Fathers: Encouragement for Fathers of Children with Special Needs. I wasn’t sure what to expect, […]

From Trash to Treasure

It’s that time of year when there is a yard sale dotting every development, when people have cleaned out their trash and are marketing it for whatever they can get, when the hunt for a bargain really kicks in. A few years ago, our family had a yard sale at my mother-in-law’s house. I did my best to avoid coming […]

Nicknames and Mary: Meet “Cachita”

When my second daughter was born, I was not prepared for how her big sister, age three-and-a-half, would react.  She had watched with great interest as my belly grew and she knew—though she didn’t really understand—that a baby would somehow be coming out of there.  When the baby was born, my three-year-old loved the baby, though that was no surprise; […]

Finding Mary in the Confirmandi

This week, I’m doing one of my favorite things: teaching and supporting our parish’s Confirmation Boot Camp. Over the years that I’ve been involved with this, I’ve found my own faith deepening. In the time that I’ve studied and prepared, in the time that I’ve taught and interacted, in the time that I’ve given and received, I’ve found myself inspired. […]

By the Grace of God…with Lots of Coffee

I get asked quite often how I do it all. Sometimes, it’s other moms. Other times, it’s colleagues of mine. There are times when it’s someone I barely know. These people see something in me that makes them question my sanity, my organizational system, and/or my ability to get it all done. (And they don’t even know the half of it, […]

Making a Pilgrimage with Kids in Tow

Before you think I’m a holy person, let me correct you; I’m not. And aren’t holy people the ones who go on pilgrimages? The word still strikes fear (or is that wonder?) in my not-raised-Catholic heart. It feels foreign in my mind, resounding with unattainable piety and perfectly behaved kids. Because, like it or not, the season of life I’m […]
