I’m Ellen Kolb, a freelance writer and Catholic pro-life activist who (to swipe a phrase from Pope Francis) refuses to stay in the balcony.  

…Do I, a Catholic, watch from the balcony? You can’t watch from the balcony! Get involved! Give it your best. If the Lord calls you to this vocation, get to it, engage in politics. 

Pope Francis, 2015

In my writing, I draw on my experience as a family member, community volunteer, Granite State hiker, and pro-life activist.
