Item Description...
God's Brat contains a diverse assortment of my writings including my life story.
Sister's accounts of her life are truly captivating. While attempting to assist in the editing of her work, I got so caught up in reading her stories and comments on life that I had to go back several times and remind myself of my duty. When this work is done, I will be in line to obtain a copy. Steve Nelson, retired high school English teacher
Sister Leahy's writings put a song in our hearts. Her many honest and open expressions are meant for each of us to enjoy. Knowing Sister has added a great dimension of mystery and beauty to my life.
Vallie J. Hardy, author of The Vallie of the Rainbow
To reflect back on one's life and see the patterns is a grace. Sr. Leahy's reflections, simple and graceful, written as a Franciscan follower, invite us also to see the hand of God in all our lives.
The sparse Nebraska prairie in the 1920s and 1930s was the life setting of her family. Sr. Kathryn's artful pen opens to the reader the inner circle of her family, of her life's work, and of things spiritual. Her heart-felt stories of simple faith living will bring delight, many a chuckle, and deeper life reflection.
Sr. M. Elizabeth Fuhr, author of No Place to Stay
Ever wonder what a Roman Catholic nun's memoir might be like? Sister Kathryn shares her journey with honesty, via a smooth, conversational writing style that captivates and makes for easy reading. Lean prose, that is yet chatty and intimate, transports her reader from heartfelt empathy to laughter and sheer delight, to sobering insights that are thought provoking and deeply spiritual.
Catherine Lazers Bauer, author of One Day on Earth: A Third Eye View
freelance writer, syndicated columnist & writing instructor

God's Brat: A diverse assortment of writings including my life story

As Author's Assistant/Editor for GOD'S BRAT, I can offer a special insight into the content of this book; but first, let me "paint you a word-picture."

Sr. Kathryn, aka Sr. M. Bartholomew, lives at Marian Residence, the nursing home for retired Sisters of St. Francis. She is eighty-eight years old, is confined to a wheelchair, has considerable hearing loss. I knew Sister only by sight when a friend asked me to volunteer to type twenty-five pages of Sister's autobiography so she could have it copied and distributed among family members. For me, that would be no difficult task. Yes, I'll meet with her about it. At our first meeting, communication soon loomed as a challenge for both of us. Sister talked. I learned to write to be sure she accurately understood my replies. As we became acquainted, we developed a routine which worked well. It wasn't long until Sister asked if I could 'type this'. And then "Can you type this, too?" As she pulled additional pages from bulging files, I eventually asked, "What all do you have there?" And then, "It looks like you have a book in those files." Little did I know how those words would forever change the lives of both of us!!!

After taking a writing class some thirty-five or so years ago, Sr. Kathryn, aka Sr. M. Bartholomew, became a prolific writer. (Her BA and MA degrees in education also served her well in becoming an author.) She wrote and wrote -- poetry, prayers, tongue twisters, stories, columns for church bulletins -- mostly about's encounters, experiences, people, places, things; faith, observations, thoughts, feelings and more. She wrote about certain topics many times, each time a tad different version, each time adding a new perspective. Pulling multiple versions of each topic into one composite story was like polishing a gem or putting together a jig-saw puzzle....challenging, frustrating at times, great satisfaction once completed!!

Sister's writings are all 'written from the heart' in a conversational, easy read style for your inspiration and enjoyment. Many tell of by-gone days which are nostalgic times now, but were hard times when they were being lived. The first sixteen years of her life story are written in the form of vignettes of those years...a non-traditional form. 'Our Rural School' is one must-read story which vividly describes what country school was like when she was young. DO TAKE TIME TO SAVOR HER WRITINGS and the forty-some pictures which accompany them. You will be glad you did!
