Welcome to The Holy Labor.

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

I write about theology, parenting, vocation, grief, and spirituality. Everywhere I glimpse God in the ordinary or extraordinary.

The Holy Labor is my weekly newsletter. One week, you’ll get an original essay from me. The next week, a round-up of others’ creative work that’s inspiring my own.

If you like long-form writing and thoughtful essays, or if you love recommendations for bringing hope and joy into your life, this is the place for you.

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and archives. Each new edition will come straight to your inbox on Saturday morning—the perfect time to read and reflect.
