big news for a birth month!

Baby is almost here. We’re waiting impatiently. The kids are clamoring every morning to know if today will be the big day.

It’s been a long journey through pregnancy after loss. But today I’m delighted to share with you a few new projects I’ve been working on behind the scenes.

First, I’m finally launching the e-newsletter you asked for back in January when I surveyed Mothering Spirit readers! 

I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, but life got full (in the best way) with work and kids. But since this baby has decided to go full-term, I’ve had enough time to create what I hope will be a great addition to Mothering Spirit.

The newsletter will feature different content from what’s on the blog:

  • ideas for how we celebrate liturgical seasons with our family
  • easy tips for living out faith at home
  • updates on my latest writing projects (plus special deals you won’t find anywhere else)
  • my favorite reads from around the Internet

And as a thank you for subscribing, you’ll get a free copy of my new e-book of Prayers for Everyday Parenting! It features prayers I get asked about whenever I speak to groups, and it’s SO beautiful (I can brag on that because I had nothing to do with it).

I’m so excited to share this e-book with you…because let’s just say it’s not the only one.

I’m saving a BIG announcement for this month’s newsletter, so you won’t want to miss what I’ve been working on behind the scenes. This project has turned years of dreaming into reality, and I can’t wait to share this baby with you!

I also wanted to let you know that I’m now writing a monthly column for Catholic News Service that will appear in diocesan newspapers across the country. Here are a few recent columns you can check out: I didn’t sign up for this. Or did I? and Walking at their pace.

I was delighted by the invitation, and it’s been lovely to hear from those of you who have noticed it in your local paper!

So now you know why I’ve been quieter on the blog in the last few months. But big things are right around the corner – most importantly, the birth of this sweet baby any day now. Stay tuned…

And thank you again for reading and supporting Mothering Spirit. I have been so touched by your comments, emails, and messages as we wait to welcome our baby. Your thoughts and prayers have meant so much to me, and I feel deeply grateful that this place and community have become part of my life’s work.

I can’t wait to show you what’s coming next.

  1. I saw you across the church yesterday; and your lovely family, I said prayers for you all and I look forward to what’s to come for you Laura! So nice getting to know your story through your postings and your speaking at our Moms group and I look forward to reading your books. May your coming year with new baby be filled with many blessings!

  2. Beautiful Laura, you just continue to inspire me to be true, to be beautiful, to share Jesus love and to never give up!
    I thank God for you and the incredible gift you are to so many.
    I feel a future visit to Australia from my lovely mumma friend Laura…to headline at a conference I will convene….just saying…as dear Gen would say.
    In the meantime I really must pray about a visit to the US again…
    Blessings upon all you do, who you are…and all you birth ❤❤❤

  3. Laura, this is so exciting! Thank you for the prayer book. My mama heart surely needs it these days. Love and prayers to you!
