Born of Wonder – Celebrating and exploring the good, the true, and the beautiful through essays, travel guides, reviews, and photo journals. “We make idols of our concepts but wisdom is born of wonder.” – St. Gregory the Great
Our culture is experiencing an existential crisis of meaning. The Good, the True, and the Beautiful have the potential to restore equilibrium to a confused and chaotic world.
I want to explore places, ideas, and questions that lead the human soul toward nobility, courage, inspiration, and eternity.
My name is Katie and I love to write, read, and ride horses. I live on a little farm with my husband, two dogs, two horses, two donkeys, and two cats.
I have undergraduate degrees in religious studies and English, and an M.A. in Conflict Resolution with a certificate in Humanitarian and Refugee Emergencies.
I have worked as a store clerk, a barn hand, a marketing intern, a research assistant, and a radio producer for an NPR member station. I currently help my husband with his interior plant design business.
I’m passionate about my Catholic faith and credit the beauty of cathedrals with saving my soul many times over.
