about mother & home
Welcome to mother & home, a Catholic motherhood collective founded by Stephanie Weinert. We offer Catholic mothers a place of retreat, refreshment, and community in a private setting that’s not on social media. Through virtual retreats (that come with an exciting twist!), fellowship in a members-only community, and collaborative writing in print and online, our vision is to help women grow in their relationship with Christ and inspire them in the value and worthiness of their vocation.
Stephanie Weinert is a Catholic wife, mother, writer, and media personality. She served as a radio host for the EWTN Global Catholic Network before becoming a stay-at-home mom. A convert to Catholicism, Stephanie is passionate about sharing her love for Scripture study with a Catholic audience. She has spoken nationally and internationally on topics related to faith, family life, homeschooling, motherhood, and the suffering path to salvation.
inspired by beckett
Stephanie and her husband Peter share openly about their youngest son, Beckett, who was born in 2019 with a surprise diagnosis of Down Syndrome and a serious heart defect. Beckett’s short life of 18 months changed the Weinert family forever, along with thousands around the world who followed Beckett’s story. In many ways mother & home is founded in Beckett’s honor. Caring for a special needs child and walking through grief and child loss helped Stephanie see motherhood and the Catholic home through a new (eternal) lens.
The mother & home community launched in 2021 with our inaugural retreat: Coming Home: An Advent Retreat for Mothers. We invited women to take a pause during the busiest time of the year to contemplate who they are as daughters of God, clarify what’s essential in their lives and homes, and cultivate that life through habit building and the right ordering of our days. We are blown away by the feedback and testimonies from our time together. Enrollment for our next mini-course is opening soon, be sure to join our waitlist and get all the details first.
