Hi! I’m Caitlin! I’m a NH girl at heart, Monday’s guarantee a messy bun, I run on coffee, and am constantly losing my keys.
I grew up in a devout Catholic family, full of love and joy. I’m the eldest of three children. My parents, Tom & Peggy, built the foundation for my faith. It has become the lens through which I view our world. It is the rock upon which I’ve built my house, the love story that tells me whose I am and who I am; it is the answer to my deepest and most profound questions, for it offers me a person: Jesus Christ.
In June of 2019 I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with my Master’s in Theology. For the past seven years I’ve worked in parish ministry as a youth minister. However, in the fall of 2019, I began teaching Theology at a Catholic high school in New Hampshire (and I LOVE it )!
Writing brings me great joy and peace (which, perhaps, shouldn’t come as a surprise as I studied it in my undergrad and come from a house of English majors/teachers). I first began blogging for Life Teen about 5 years ago. While I continue to write for them, I decided to begin this blog to write on a more consistent basis. And (spoiler alert) have hopes of publishing a book some day in the near future.
As someone who has struggled with diagnosed anxiety and depression, I have a passion for advocating for mental health, and pairing theology with psychology. My hope is to bring Christ’s light to people in darkness, particularly through my writing, as so many people I love dearly have been that Light for me.
