Hello! I’m Elizabeth Tomlin. I’m a Catholic author and General Counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA. I have worked in women’s ministry for more than a decade – most recently with the Military Council of Catholic Women, which I helped to set up as the women’s ministry for the Archdiocese for the Military Services in 2013.
I love to write about all things faith-related – scripture, Church history, parish ministry, and more. I wrote Joyful Momentum: Growing and Sustaining Vibrant Women’s Groups (Ave Maria Press) to help communities cultivate thriving, healthy, faith-filled women’s ministries. I recently created Good Tidings, an Advent Devotional free e-book, and A Time to Grow: A Daily Devotional for Lenten Pilgrims, also a free e-book. My next piece will be out with Ave Maria Press in the fall in the Ave Prayer Book for Mothers, to which I contributed a rosary reflection for service members called the Rosary for Warriors.
I speak to audiences large and small, both in the United States and abroad. I’ve spoken at the Mid-Atlantic Congress for the past three years. In recent days, I have a lot of Zoom engagements, but can’t wait to resume in-person gatherings. Whether you’re planning a diocesan conference, or a small retreat, I’d love to work with your group. Send me an email or message on Instagram.
Still want to know more? Well… I’m an Army wife, a mom to three children from college-age to elementary school, and you’ll often find me wrangling our chocolate lab puppy, Hershey. We currently live in Washington state, but I’m a native of the Washington, D.C. area.
Educationally speaking, I earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the College of William and Mary a juris doctor from George Mason University School of Law.
