About Ellen

I’m a striving Catholic from New Hampshire, where my husband and I brought up our five children. I’m a Granite State walker, putting in all the miles I can manage on southern New Hampshire’s beautiful trails. I’ve been a pro-life activist and political campaigner.

Something Pope Francis said struck a chord with me: “…Do I, a Catholic, watch from the balcony? You can’t watch from the balcony! Get involved! Give it your best.”

And so I try.



I hope you’ll check out my other blogs, too.

  • Leaven for the Loaf: Since 2012, I’ve been writing at Leaven for the Loaf about pro-life issues in New Hampshire.
  • Granite State Walker: Join me at Granite State Walker, where I’ve been writing since 2006 about my favorite trails close to home.
