Amy Morris-Young

Amy Morris-Young lives in the San Juan Islands with husband, Dan Morris-Young, and son Nick. Dan and Amy have a combined family of six kids and eight grandkids, the youngest of whom made her a Nonna. Amy is a product of 16 years of Catholic education, culminating at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. She is one of those bleeding-heart liberal Catholics. It is in her DNA to bring you lasagna when you are sick.

In the Bible and US history, we need to look at all the pictures

The everyday miracle of calmness

Random joy is miraculous

Amid vitriol and polarization, how can we love one another?

Resisting the pity party

Dear Mary, age 4: I'm sorry that our world is broken and dangerous

Far from Italy, living in American isolation, I pine for Lucca

Fashion notes from my nonna

Held in God's loving embrace

Instead of rest in peace, run and play

Author invites us to irreligious realm

Planning is overrated

The words of the Mass do matter

The life-changing magic of letting your hair go white

Parenting is always one day at a time

You might not see her, but she is right here

It is never truly enough

I got the whole wide world in my hands

What would Jesus drive?

I guard my minutes and hours almost as ferociously as Nonna did
