"Everything smells weird and I have a poor relationship with the cat." -- An Interview with Simcha Fisher

Did I shriek like a fan-girl when Simcha Fisher agreed to an interview, and then, did some of her answers make me cry? You better believe it.

What an honor to share with the world more of Simcha's humbly genuine, comfortably stream-of-conscience insights about life, work, family, and faith.


FemCatholic: Your writing is nationally and internationally syndicated, you travel the country as a well-loved speaker, you’re a respected Catholic commentator and moderator, a published author, a regular podcast host, a wife, and a mom, raising 10 kids with your husband, Damien. Am I leaving anything out?

Simcha Fisher: No, but when you put it that way, it sounds like a completely different person. Sometimes people ask me how I manage to do it all, and I'm kind of baffled. Then I realize, "Oh, they think I'm doing everything well." I'm not. My house is a wreck. I miss deadlines. Everything smells weird and I have a very poor relationship with the cat. My spiritual life is a circus act, and not in the fun way. But I do have a preternatural ability to pick myself up and start over ten billion times, and that has proved very useful.

Please read the rest -- how she wrote & published The Sinner's Guide to NFP, personal worries about parenting, podcasting with her husband, and where to send your kids for a good education (spoiler: it depends) -- over at FemCatholic!
