Welcome to The Holy Labor.

I’m Laura Kelly Fanucci. Mother, writer, wonderer. You can find out more here.

I write about theology and spirituality in everyday life. Where I’m glimpsing God in joy or grief, ordinary or extraordinary.

The Holy Labor is my weekly newsletter—free for you thanks to the generous support of paid subscribers. If you like thought-provoking essays on faith, or if you love recommendations for bringing hope and joy into your life, this is the place for you.

Each new essay will come straight to your inbox on Saturday morning—the perfect time to read and reflect. And every Wednesday, you’ll receive a round-up of others' creative work that’s inspiring my own: books, essays, art, music, poems, or prayers.

Subscribe now to get full access to the newsletter and archives.
