Welcome! I’m Laura Kelly Fanucci. Mother, writer, wonderer.
My husband and I have four wild boys who keep us running dawn till dark and three sweet babies in our hearts: one lost to miscarriage and Maggie & Abby, our identical twin daughters who died in 2016 from twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).
As part of my theological work on vocation, I’ve written To Bless Our Callings: Prayers, Poems, and Hymns to Celebrate Vocation (Wipf & Stock, 2017) and co-authored Living Your Discipleship: 7 Ways to Express Your Deepest Calling with Kathleen A. Cahalan (23rd Publications, 2015).
I’m the author of Everyday Sacrament: The Messy Grace of Parenting (Liturgical Press, 2014) which is available from Liturgical Press, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. I’ve also written 3 short volumes for Little Rock Scripture Study: Mercy: God’s Nature, Our Challenge, Dashed Hopes: When Our Best-Laid Plans Fall Apart, and Grief: Finding Hope in Sorrow.
I started this blog shortly after my first son’s birth in 2009. As I rocked him in the church’s cry room one Sunday, the choir sang a hymn about God’s Mothering Spirit. I’ve been captivated by connections between faith and parenting ever since.
This space is where I explore mothering through writing. It’s where I celebrate how God shows up in the chaos of raising children. And it’s where I love to build community with readers like you.
