Hi, I’m Emily Stimpson Chapman, a wife, mother, and Catholic writer. I’ve spent the past two decades writing books, essays, news articles, and studies about Church teaching and the life of faith. Now, with three small children ages four and under, I’m not as good at meeting deadlines as I used to be. I still, however, want to help people understand the Faith more deeply and know Christ more intimately, so I’m getting creative about how I do that.

If you’re looking to keep up with my writing and the big issues I’m wrestling with, I invite you to subscribe to my Substack newsletter. There, I do monthly Q&A’s and regular studies of books and Church documents. This year, I’ll be walking readers weekly through the papal writings of Pope Benedict XVI. Those newsletters are free for all subscribers. Paying subscribers also have access to one new long form essay a month, which explores some aspect of the Catholic faith or Christian life, as well as access to the complete archives. You can see past issues here.

If you’re looking to keep up with my daily life, my family, what I’m cooking, and what I’m musing about during naptime, please follow me on Instagram.

If you’re looking to download my e-cookbook or free e-books (or purchase any of my published books), come back soon, once I have the store here up and running.

Lastly, if you want to read old blog posts or find old recipes, click on the links above, and you can meander through various essays of mine written between 2015 and 2019.

With a four, two, and one-year-old, I’m not currently accepting speaking engagements. It’s just too much for me to handle at this time. But when I’m ready to hit the road again, I’ll add a section here that will give you all the information you need to submit a request.

My goal is always to teach the Faith with fidelity and clarity, but also with gentleness and compassion, sacrificing neither orthodoxy nor charity. I hope you find that in these pages and in all the different venues where I currently write. Thank you for visiting. I hope to hear more from you.

(This site, like me, is a slow work in progress, so please pardon its current state.)
