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

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.

My Reset Button

What is it about being Catholic that’s so special to me? Is it that I just needed something to latch onto, a set of rituals to make my own and embrace? Why does it seem to “correct” so much of what I always struggled with? At Holy Thursday, battling tears and a three-year-old boy, I realized what it is. “Communion [...]


Ellen Gable on Integrating Faith and Fiction

When it comes down to it, I’m a fiction reader. Oh yes, I read plenty of nonfiction in any given year, but, for me, fiction is the payoff, the reward, the icing on the cake of my favorite hobby. Over the last few years, since I’ve been an “official” writer of sorts, I’ve gotten to know some writers, and some of [...]


Being Still and Knowing

It’s been a long haul. I’ve been facing a couple of challenges that have stretched me and pulled me and forced me to really lean back into God. And it hurts. As I sat in Mass this weekend, listening to a missionary priest speak about the work that Cross Catholic Outreach does, near tears because of a number of things, [...]

David DeWolf and the Integrated Life

You know that guy who manages to do it all and look good doing it? His name is David DeWolf, and I’ve come to find out that he does not, in fact, have a superpower that none of the rest of us can access. David is CEO of 3Pillar Global, a company he founded and now travels internationally to run. [...]


Dr. Pitre’s “Jesus The Bridegroom” — An Interview and Excerpt

The premise behind scripture professor and popular speaker Dr. Brant Pitre’s new book is one that turned my head. It delves into something that’s confusing when you stop to think about it. Jesus, a bridegroom. OK, yeah, but isn’t that a metaphor? Turns out, not so much. From the Publisher: “In ‘Jesus the Bridegroom’, Brant Pitre once again taps into [...]


The Promise of Lent

There’s been some mistake, God. We seem to have lost a few weeks this year, and rumor has it that Lent is right around the corner. I AM NOT READY, God. I have just made a major life change, jumped off the proverbial cliff, trusting you to catch me. In the midst of the turmoil and uncertainty — and the [...]


Faith and the Writing Life with 10 Minute Writer Katharine Grubb

One of the best parts of being an avid reader and a writer is the people I get to connect with. Katharine Grubb and I first “met” via Twitter, where she’s @10MinuteWriter. Her blog, appropriately named “10 Minute Writer,” is full of longer-form insights and wisdom. I’ve actually hugged Katharine in person: she’s stayed at my house and shared food [...]


Turning to God, Even When It Feels Crazy

I don’t know WHAT came over me. The kids were bouncing off the walls, the noise level was topping earth shaking, and I had a list that was still a half-mile long. Maybe it just seemed fruitless to keep working before dinner. Maybe I realized that Scramble wouldn’t cut it for what I needed. Maybe I was desperate enough to realize [...]


Why I’m Glad We Started Interviewing Our Confirmation Candidates

I’ve been involved with our Confirmation program for a number of years and it’s been one of the most rewarding and unbelievable experiences I continue to have as a Catholic. In fact, it’s right up there with motherhood. Last year, we started interviewing our candidates before the program started. I had no idea what a difference it would make. We’re [...]
