My name is Kathryn Anne Casey.
I am a freelance mother, former life coach/prevention specialist, wife and mother of four children here on earth.
Here you will find writing and photography centered on beauty, psychology, consumerism, faith and family life. Elsewhere in the world, you can find my work on Mind&Spirit, 209 Magazine, Parent.co, and Verily Mag; and the print-only weekly newspaper, the Hughson Chronicle & Denair Dispatch.
Country-grown in Hughson, California, I spent my middle school afternoons changing positions while I devoured works by the Bronte sisters and Jane Austen. Parish ministry long hours of novel reading to spiritual reading, as piety reordered my life. After serving with NET Ministries, I moved to Minnesota to complete my undergraduate degree at the University of St. Thomas.
My education was spent studying psychology, grounded in Catholic thought, at Divine Mercy University. Upon graduation, my husband and I dove headlong into family life, facing the typical and atypical struggles of married life: job searches, the search for marital bliss, miscarriages, babies, homeschooling and finally, some financial stability. After the birth of our medically-complex son, Peter, and then the birth and death of our daughter Celeste from anencephaly, life set itself on a new course. We may never have played it smart, but we remained open to the adventure life has to offer.
Grief set me on the quest for beauty. Sharing moments of beauty with others reminds us we not only have each other but point us to something greater than this word, the super-beautiful God the Father. Along with the women of Jerusalem, I want you to know you are not alone. I will share my moments of grief and moments of joy and invite you to share your own. We can walk this road together.
