About the BellaOnline Catholicism Editor
Melissa Knoblett-Aman

Hi and welcome to Catholicism at BellaOnline!

I am a freelance writer and a cradle Catholic whose religious and spiritual journey truly took off during my college years. While attending Western Carolina University, I became very active with the Catholic Campus Ministry and have been quite involved in church life ever since then. I’ve attended countless retreats and missions, served on the team for a couple retreats, acted as a sponsor for R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults), and participated in several Bible study groups. I also had the wonderful opportunity to be involved in the process of bringing Landings (a reconciliation ministry dedicated to welcoming returning Catholics home) to my area. Additionally, I designed, edited and helped write a parish newsletter for a few years. And I worked part-time in a local parish office for seven years. My degree is in English with a concentration in writing and editing, as well as a minor in psychology.

Through my knowledge of the Catholic faith and my own spiritual journey, I hope to create a site that is of interest to both Catholics and those seeking a deeper understanding of Catholicism.

I am also the BellaOnline Editor for Cats and former editor of Southeast USA. Formerly I served on the Editorial Board of Mused - the BellaOnline Literary Review as Senior Fiction Editor, Senior Plays Editor and assisted with artwork and plays. Additionally, I write content for Squidoo.com and am in the process of developing my own website where I will offer writing and editing services.

* Disclaimer about ads at the top of this site and in the side columns. Occasionally I have seen advertisements promoting such things as contraception that go against Catholic teaching. These ads are site wide across all channels and topics on BellaOnline and not something under my control. I do not support any advertisement that goes against the teachings of our Catholic faith.
