Blog Turns One! And Other Exciting News...


Happy birthday to On the Edge of Faith!

It is amazing that it’s been a year since a few informal conversations I had with people both online and in person resulted in the launch of this blog, On the Edge of Faith. My hope was - and is - that this blog can provide a meaningful space to enjoy thought-provoking discussions about the intersection of faith and the world. 

I’m very grateful to the many people who supported the development and launch of the blog including Brian Allain who originally helped me think though the concept and provided invaluable mentoring along the way. I’m also thankful for the guest bloggers who have contributed including Elizabeth Hagan, Jeff Nelson and Julia Powers.

On this anniversary, I also wanted to share some exciting news: my second memoir, Their Faces Shone: Lessons on Loving and Letting Go, has been accepted for publication and will be released in the summer 2020! I’m thrilled and honored to be working with Light Message Publishing again. The book describes our experience as foster parents, and in particular, explores the impact the journey had on my marriage with David. I’ll keep you posted as we get closer to the release date. In the meantime, I am incredibly thankful for the early reviews that Elizabeth Futrell and Christy Wilkens provided. Check them out below….

I have exciting plans for On the Edge of Faith in the coming year including new a guest blog series I’ll be hosting related to questions of how we define family - and in particular, where family begins and ends. Stay tuned for more details. And in the meantime, thank you for all of your support of the blog over the past year!

With thanks,


Kate Rademacher
