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.

Mother's day present for my wife Jun 1, 2008
.... and she loves it! Beware, there was a bad printing run where sections of Jully-September were missing. The author and publisher are aware, and this site exchanged the book for a perfect one!
Catholic Book of Days May 5, 2008
This book is well written, but it is not relevant to me...over 50, no children. The readings deal with family life joys and problems, most of which I have not experienced. Therefore, I cannot draw meaning from the devotions. Also, the devotions seem to be mostly the story of her life, not any good advice for me. A young woman with children...a stay at home mom...would probably benefit from this book.
Great resource for any Catholic woman Dec 17, 2007
This book of daily reflection is a great way to start you day. Amy Wellborn write from a perspective we can all relate to. A worthwhile purchase.
Daily Inspiration Oct 24, 2007
This book is great for Mom's who find themselves waiting for their children and need a boost of faith filled inspiration. I enjoy reading daily -- and each day helps me to focus spiritually.
Thought-provoking Jul 12, 2007
Short daily pages with scripture, meditation and prayer. I find the short prayers the best part because they make me think--I ponder over them throughout my day.
