About & Contact

I’m Stephanie, and I am changing up this blog. Certain directions or brands are gone; I’d just like to post a little bit more often about whatever I happen to feel like, bringing a thoughtful perspective to pop-culture, nature, parenting, teaching, faith, current events or anything else.

Here’s a little bit more: I’m a convert to the Catholic Faith; I love ideas and art; I search for truth in my articles, and seek to share beauty found along the way.bnRkGO0jpDIGp_mHnqEMe7HV3W66nE9psqyYjS8t_Ea2SsmPmkSbvhBGKW2YJNFOvmmNsg=w1315-h537

I love music and books, and to me, an oasis of beauty is a must in the busy desert of Washington DC and parenting.

I see most issues as complex balances and less as one or the other. I see values and trade-offs in choices, and I strive to be fair-minded, clear and honest about whatever I write about.

My goal is to love God and others and to always seek the truth.

Please feel free to comment or send any questions about anything! I’m on Twitter @StephaniesIdeas and I’d love to hear from you!

Family wise, I have an kind, talented husband and three little people who inspire me to write about family life sometimes too.

As for my educational background, I have a B.A. with Honors in Religious Studies from the University of Virginia (and a minor in Government), and an M.A. summa cum laude in Theological Studies from Christendom College. And now, I’m a certified teacher.

  1. Hi, I just stumbled across your blog and read a few posts, and wanted to say: it’s awesome! Your thoughts and perspective are worth reading, and are the kind of thoughts that build or encourage rather than just amuse. I hope that you keep writing for a long time–the more open, caring Christians who share how they live and think, the better for us all 🙂 I will add you and your family to my prayers.

  2. Hi Stephanie, will you point me to other ‘turn the other cheek’ stories you’ve found? Are there any fun ones like the one in Les Miserable? Your article entitled, “The Les Miserables Bishop: An Example for Us All” was so nice to read. Thank you, Aaron

    • Hi Aaron, glad you liked it! And thanks for your comment. Now, other “turn the other cheek” stories–I will have to think about that and update this. One does spring to mind though, Aloysha, the youngest brother, in The Brothers Karamozov by Dostoevsky. But I will think on it for less obscure examples and add them
