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.
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!
