Writers Bio

Mitch Finley

Author Image I am a native of the Pacific Northwest, growing up in Oregon and Washington. After graduation from a Catholic high school in 1964, I served four years of shore duty in the U. S. Navy. I then earned a B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Santa Clara, a Jesuit school in California. During the following year, I met and married my spouse, author and counselor Kathleen Finley, and we have happily worked at being married since 1974. Along the way, we became the parents of three boys who are now young adults.

Following our marriage, in 1976 I completed studies for an M.A. in Theology from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, another Jesuit school. For nine months I directed parish religious education programs, then accepted the position of director of the Family Life Office of the Catholic Diocese of Spokane. A few years later, I began working as a freelance writer, mostly for the Catholic press. In the intervening years, I have authored hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles plus more than 30 books on Catholic themes. For nearly ten years, I worked part time as events coordinator for a large independent bookstore in Spokane, and after that for more than five years I was staff writer for the Inland Register, the official newspaper of the Catholic Diocese of Spokane. Since then, I have been semi-retired and I continue my freelance writing career, as well as speaking and giving workshops and retreats, sometimes with my spouse, sometimes on my own.
I enjoy writing for Living Faith because I find it rewarding to try saying something helpful to the reader's faith and spirituality in relatively few words. I get far more comments about what I write in Living Faith than about all the books I've written. I hope Living Faith readers find my contributions an encouragement to their faith, and I hope that sometimes they find what I write is also fun to read.
