Founder of CatholicMom.com says she likes to write from her treehouse
And now you’ve just said yes to something new: Editor-at-Large at Ave Maria Press. What are you most excited about when it comes to this new position? And was this another “the Holy Spirit opened the door” kind of thing?
Yes, this was the Holy Spirit. I’m so blessed that they invited me to take on this role. I can do it from home, thanks to technology, and it’s going to complement my work at the web site, and my own writing and speaking.
The reason I’m so excited about it is that, first of all, I know Ave Maria Press so well, because I’ve been with them for five years, and I know their commitment to their readers and their goal to lead people closer to Christ and into a more deep understanding of the Church. And to be able to discover in a small way discover new voices, provide a platform for new authors, maybe people we may not have considered in the past. To serve our readers in this way will be such a huge blessing. They tease me that I’ve been at this for a while because often when I’m on the road and I meet someone I’ll contact them and say, “Have you considered this person?” Usually it’s a selfish desire that I have to read a book from that person myself! With catholicmom.com I’ve had an opportunity to help writers develop their voices and it’s role I really enjoy.
So, please pray for me. As long as I stay covered in prayer and keep my head on straight, that will be a good thing.
