More About Amy Welborn

Amy Welborn Amy Welborn is a well-known, popular freelance writer. She is the author of many books on prayer, the saints and apologetics. Amy lives with her family in Birmingham, Alabama.

In the author's own words...

I was born in 1960, an only child then and now. My father,a political scientist, passed away in October 2011. My mother, deceased since 2001, was a teacher, librarian and artist. The Catholicism comes from her side.

I grew up in a number of places - Indiana - Washington, DC - Lubbock Texas - Arlington, Virginia - DeKalb, Illinois - Lawrence, Kansas - and Knoxville, Tennessee, where we settled in 1973. I attended Knoxville Catholic High School, then the University of Tennessee where I majored in history. I received an MA in Church History from Vanderbilt University, where I wrote a thesis on the changing role of women in 19th century American Protestantism, and the ways Scripture was used to justify those changes.

I have worked as a teacher in Catholic high schools, and a Parish Director of Religious Education. I started writing for the diocesan press - the Florida Catholic - in 1988. I've written columns for Our Sunday Visitor and Catholic News Service as well at times over the past twenty years. I've been writing full time since 1999. My articles have been published in venues ranging from Our Sunday Visitor to the New York Times to Commonweal. I've written nineteen books and many pamphlets and study guides. I am a regular contributor to the Living Faith and Living Faith for Kids devotionals.

I have five children, ranging in age from 29 to 7.

For 8 1/2 happy years beginning in 2000, I was married to Michael Dubruiel, who had worked as an editor for Our Sunday Visitor for nine years, but in the summer of 2008 changed jobs to serve as Director of Evangelization for the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama.

On February 3, 2009, Michael died while running on the treadmill at the gym. My new book,Wish You Were Here: Travels Through Loss and Hope, is a memoir of those first few months, which included a sort of crazy decision to travel to Sicily.

Amy Welborn currently resides in Fort Wayne, in the state of Indiana. Amy Welborn was born in 1960.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Traditional Catholic Beliefs presented in an easy to read format  Sep 30, 2007
Let me start by saying that I don't disagree with anything Ms. Welborn presents in this book. Maybe my expectations were too high when I purchased this book having read the reviews already posted. While Ms. Welborn presents accurate and traditional Catholic Teachings in this book, I didn't find anything fresh or new. That's not to say that this book isn't well written. I would say, however, that if your looking for a book that tells you that you can have it all to "live the good life" you will be disappointed. This book is a sound, matter of fact approach to living with a true Catholic identity. I am glad the Ms. Welborn didn't water anything down and stayed true to the Catholic Churches teachings. It is worth reading as I presents Catholic Theology in an easy and accessible way.
An Awesome, Inspired work!  Mar 31, 2007
I have just found a new favorite author in Amy Welborn.
Her writing is not just "inspirational" it is truly inspired. I don't think there is a wasted word. I could not put this book down. Amy has a wonderful down to earth way to relate profound Truths. You will not regret buying and reading this book. If you love the Faith you will be reassured, if you are unsure you will be enlightened. I can't wait to read more of her writing.
Very Practical  Oct 21, 2005
Amy Welborn's style of writing is so practical and understandable. She writes like she is having a conversation with you....sharing her thoughts and writing what the reader is likely thinking. Her suggestion on how to get to know Jesus better are simple and doable. Catholic teenagers should read this's that good.
Great book for many age groups  Oct 6, 2005
This short read is a must for those Catholics who question their faith and want answers to many "whys" in the Catholic Church's teachings. It would be great to share with teens and young adults. It would be a wonderful tool for a Youth Ministry class. Amy Welborn is faithfilled and gets right to the point and the truth in a way everyone can understand.
A Fresh Presentation of the Gospel  Aug 8, 2005
Although apparently targeted to teens and young adults, this small book offers a refreshing restatement of the Gospel challenge of forging a personal relationship with Jesus that older adults will find invigorating. Welborn obviously has the main qualification for any Catholic apologist: living the faith in daily prayer. Three themes stand out: 1.) her focus on Catholicism as a personal relationship with Jesus in and through His Church; 2.)the urgency of attending to Scripture, especially the Gospels; and 3.) restating John Paul the Great's theology of the body in understandable form. Welborn's book will remind you of your calling if you are older and will open your eyes if you have yet to grapple with Jesus. The only major suggestion for improvement I would offer Ms. Welborn is to focus even more on the importance of living in the Holy Spirit as the engine for the Christian life. On a much less important note, I would suggest she drop any works by Luke Timothy Johnson as a recommended source for her readers. Mr. Johnson is an outspoken critic of John Paul the Great's theology of the body. More importantly, Mr. Johnson mischaracterizes the Resurrection of Christ in his commentary on the New Testament. In my opinion, Luke Timothy Johnson is not a reliable Catholic source. Younger readers should not be directed to him as a "go-to" name.
