My name is Beth. I am an author and speaker, based from my home in Chicago. I do my best writing sitting in the big cozy chair that overlooks the trees outside my front window. I’m passionate about faith, spirituality, service, and justice. I’ve known for a long time that I am called to live an intentional single life. Whether you’re here to browse the blog, inquire about an event, or find a companion on the single life journey – I’m glad that we can be together in this space.
I am an avid journal writer and occasional blogger – when the Spirit moves me to write! I recently joined a group of women writers, who are collaborating on a blog project “Into the Deep” exploring Ignatian spirituality through the voices of women.
I am also the author of two books on women’s spirituality – Finding My Voice: A Young Woman’s Perspective (2009) and Party of One: Living Single with Faith, Purpose, and Passion (2011).
I regularly facilitate workshops, retreats, and days of reflection on topics ranging from relationships and the single life to social justice and missionary discipleship. I’m available for online or in-person gatherings. Be sure to check out my Speaker page and Upcoming Events to learn more.
My daytime job
I also have a full time gig that I absolutely love! I work for an amazing Catholic organization, where I facilitate leadership development and advocacy training for faith-based leaders who want to make an impact in the lives of poor and vulnerable communities around the world.
