Sarah Reinhard

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.

Painting with a Purpose — #Art4Sarah

Jeannie Ewing and I “met” virtually about a year ago. In that time, we’ve worked together at CatholicMom.com, where Jeannie’s a regular contributor, and I learned about her family’s incredible story. Part of what makes it so incredible to me is how very hope-filled it seems. I would not have expected that having a child like Sarah would inspire hope, but that’s […]

Roger Thomas and His New Novel, The Accidental Marriage

The Accidental Marriage: A Novel (Ignatius Press), by Roger Thomas, is a take on the issue of love that not only got my attention, but that also kept me smiling. Scott and Megan are friends, each in separate same-sex relationships. Megan and her lover decide to have a baby, and it’s natural to Megan that Scott be the donor. As […]

Lisa Hendey on The Grace of Yes

Though I’ve conducted a fair share of interviews, I can’t hold a candle to the person I’m interviewing today, who, by her own admission, is more comfortable asking the questions than answering them. It’s an honor to have the chance to interview Lisa Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and author of the brand-new book The Grace of Yes: Eight Virtues to Generous […]

New Prayer Books Worth Checking Out

I have a bit of a “thing” for prayer books, it’s true. For one thing, they make great gifts. For another, they help if you’re stuck in a corner with your prayer life (which, ahem, I may or may not be quite often). These new books are perfect for teens…and for the rest of us too! Prayers for Young Catholics […]

You Owe It to Yourself to Read The American Catholic Almanac

I was cruising through my new favorite book, The American Catholic Almanac: A Daily Reader of Patriots, Saints, Rogues, and Ordinary People Who Changed the United States, when I came upon the April 7 entry, entitled “The Duke.” It began, “When asked about his religion, John Wayne usually gave one of two responses. Either he claimed to be a ‘presbygod____nterian’ or a […]

Two Vatican Scientists, One Great New Book

I’ve been enamored with Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? since the blue galley copy showed up in my mailbox. I haven’t read it all, but I’ve nibbled enough to know it’s full of wit and wisdom. My science-loving self can’t walk away from the proposition that’s in all the marketing copy: “Witty and thought provoking, two Vatican astronomers shed provocative light […]

Marcellino D’Ambrosio and the Importance of the Church Fathers

Recently, I had the chance to read an advance copy of a book I sort of dreaded, though I love the author. When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers (Servant, 2014) has all the elements that usually inspire me to become a runner or a napper: history, theological things I find confusing or troubling, and history. Yes, there’s […]

Danielle Bean and Momnipotent

I remember the very first email I sent to Danielle Bean. She used to have this feature on her blog where she would pose a reader question to the masses and let everyone answer. I was never any help, but I valued what those people could offer me. I was 30 years old, had a rambunctious 18-month-old and a full-time job, […]

Taking a Pilgrimage with Fr. James Martin’s New Book

When I first heard about Fr. James Martin’s new book, Jesus: A Pilgrimage, I’ll be honest: I wasn’t interested. It wasn’t until I became part of the posting team for the virtual book club at CatholicMom.com that I really committed to it. And the reason I jumped in on that was because of someone else’s passion to read this book as […]
