Hi. I’m Catherine, reader, writer, occasional speaker, mom of three, pastor’s wife, Christ follower. I live with my family in an inner city area near Denver, Colorado, but I long to live in a mountainy forest somewhere, surrounded by trees outside, books inside and no telephones. I live always in the tension between love thy neighbor and my innate desire to not have any neighbors. Hopefully for supper tonight I can rustle up some yeasty bread, steaming pasta, a green salad and some kind of cobbler with ice cream, but most likely I will forget to prepare anything until I am too hungry to wait and we will eat something microwaved. Such is life in an accidentally homeschooling house whose mom is usually sucked into a book. My husband Michael is my best friend, and he is most likely sucked into a book, too, though he’d pick a biography or history while I’d pick a mystery or some thought-provoking fiction.

My book, Thirty Thousand Days, was picked up last year by Christian Focus.  It’s a meditation on having life “to the full,” and you may read more about it here.

I’ve also been honored to write articles for a few different websites, including godcenteredlife.org (The Power of Like, Colorblind, The Greatest Story Ever Told, Psalm 46 in a World Gone Mad, Election Year Exiles), The Gospel Coalition (The Surprising Upside to Sadness), and crosswalk.com (How to Spot Strategic Moments in Your Kids’ Lives, Ten Old-Fashioned Virtues that Deserve a Comeback).

Welcome to Catherine’s Letters. Hope you’ll come back soon!

  1. I absolutely love what you have written. Such incredible transpanrency. You have and you are a beautiful gift from our Lord, A meditation book on having an abundant life would be so good to have right about now, so I hope you hurry up and get on with it (in your spare time). No pressure intended.


  2. Catherine, we went to high school together I believe (Grimsley class of 92?) I have just discovered your blog and just ordered your book and am so excited to read it! I am also a pastor’s wife … Recently planted a new church in Alabama. Anyway, it is so encouraging to read your posts and I look forward to connect wih you more through your writings! Thank you for sharing Truth, your heart, and answering the call to encourage others in this journey. BLessings to you! 🙂 Anna (Pierce) Dickson


    1. Hi, Anna! It is so nice to hear from you! I would love to catch up and hear of your adventures. How cool that we ended up on somewhat parallel paths. Bet we could compare notes for hours! Hope you are doing really well, and thanks so much for your kind words!


  3. Hi Catherine,
    I would love to talk to you one-on-one about self-publishing my first book. Kathy Zimmer gave me your information to contact you. I attend the same church she attends and we get a chance to chat at the fitness center. I hope to hear back from you soon, and we can touch base with each other. God bless!


    1. Hi, Pat! That would be great. (I love your church.) I don’t know much about self-publishing, although I’ll be happy to chat with you about anything I have learned over the years. If you want, you can message me on Facebook (look for Kate Morgan) and we can set something up. Have a great day!
