Background

Summary

In my writing and speaking, I speak to the challenges of finding faith in everyday life through a voice that reaches out to readers and invites them to join me in the midst of my own failures and mistakes. Though my writing has been largely faith-based, I am interested in writing in other markets, especially in ways that will help women and families.

Specialties:Writing and speaking about Catholicism, faith, family life, and motherhood.

Publications

Welcome Baby Jesus: Advent and Christmas Reflections for Families(Link)

Liguori Publications
March 2011

Advent is a season almost forgotten by the secular world. With new toys and electronics available, why should we focus on this time of anticipation? Most everyone cannot wait for Christmas morning to arrive, but is it for the right reason? Sarah A. Reinhard designed Welcome Baby Jesus for you and your family to capture some of what's intended by the liturgical season of Advent. Each day has a Scripture quote from the Sunday gospel readings, a brief reflection, and an action to complete. With each passing Sunday, your Advent Wreath will grow brighter, your family's faith will grow stronger, and the true meaning of this season will be discovered.

Welcome Risen Jesus: Lent and Easter Reflections for Families(Link)

Liguori Publications
January 2012

Welcome Risen Jesus offers daily reflections and thoughts that encourage families to THINK, PRAY, ACT based on words from Scripture. These exercises are designed to engage your household during the Lenten season by tying Scripture and reflection to your daily life. With each passing Sunday, your family's faith will grow stronger, and the true meaning of this season will be discovered.

A Catholic Mother’s Companion: Walking with Mary from Conception to Baptism(Link)

Ave Maria Press
September 2012

My aim with this book is not to provide a Catholic version of What to Expect when You’re Expecting, but rather to provide another voice to guide women through pregnancy and to offer a unique perspective.

Unlike other books on the market, A Catholic Mother’s Companion: Walking with Mary from Conception to Baptism begins at conception and includes a 40-week walk through each week of pregnancy, considering both physical and spiritual aspects of this time. It includes sections for preparing spiritually and practically for labor and delivery as well as baptism.

Through all of this, Mary is involved, and that’s really where the heart of the project is for me. As I struggled with feeling like the most ill-equipped person to write this book, it was the image of the Blessed Mother that was my encouragement.

Pregnancy is a lot like that for me: something that’s beautiful and terrifying and nearly impossible. It is my prayer that this book will touch many hearts and be a work of the Holy Spirit for families.
