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.

You’ll find my shorter writing featured on CatholicMom.com, the Military Council of Catholic Women, and in Salute, the magazine of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA

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.
