Theology on Tap - "Making Sense of the Single Season: Vocations, Dating, and Playing the Waiting Game Right”


Why is it so hard to find a good Catholic spouse? How do you date in the culture today without losing your sanity or your soul? And what is all this talk about a single vocation? Find out the answers to those questions and more when Catholic author Emily Stimpson addresses the ins and outs of the single life today, from the Church's teachings on vocations to making career decisions and dating do's and don'ts. 


Emily Stimpson

Emily Stimpson is a freelance Catholic writer based in Steubenville, Ohio, and the author of The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years (Emmaus Road, 2012). Her second book, “Everyday Theology of the Body: Meditations on the Mysteries and Manners of the Sacramental Worldview” is forthcoming from Emmaus Road Press in August 2013. 

As a contributing editor to Our Sunday Visitor Newsweekly and a blogger for Catholic Vote, she writes regularly on “all things Catholic”—from politics and catechesis to higher education and the media, with a special focus on the Church’s teachings on marriage, sexuality, and femininity. Over the years her writing has also appeared in First Things, Touchstone, Franciscan Way, the National Catholic Register, Faith and Family, Lay Witness, Catholic Digest, and elsewhere. It has been honored by both the Catholic Press Association and the Associated Church Press, and was included in Loyola’s Best Catholic Writing series.

Emily holds a BA from Miami University of Ohio (Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laud), where she studied political science, history, and English literature. She also did graduate work in political theory at John Hopkins University and theology at Franciscan University. Before moving to Steubenville, Stimpson worked in Washington, DC, first as a Legislative Assistant to then Congressman Jim Talent (R-MO), then later at the Heritage Foundation, where she served as Special Assistant to former Attorney General Edwin Meese III.
