My name is Barbara Graver. I’m a Catholic blogger, genre writer, etsy shop owner, holistic nurse, ex new ager and mom to three grown up sons and one wild but lovable Border Collie.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, design, gardening, journaling and hanging out with my family.
Over the last few years a lot has changed for me. High points include leaving the new age and occult, traveling to Israel and returning to the Catholic Church.
These events impacted my life in ways I would have never expected.
Stepping away from the new age meant leaving behind an entire body of creative work. This included a popular metaphysical blog, a well known internet radio show and a small occult shop on Esty.
Traveling to Israel brought more changes. I experienced real spiritual growth over the course of my trip. And it was in Israel where I first begin to reconnect with my Catholic faith.
Starting over again was a challenge and in many ways is still very much a work in progress. But I now have a few different projects online and off and am feeling hopeful about all of it.
I’ve been writing or imagining happy endings ever since I remember. Over the years, I’ve written several full length manuscripts but I’m no longer comfortable with some of that content. So, as with many things, I’m starting over from scratch.
I’m currently working on a paranormal / fantasy series that is Catholic friendly as opposed to the many books in this genre that stand in direct opposition to our faith. I will be publishing book one in the series in 2022.
I’m also working on a nonfiction book called “New Age To Catholic.” It’s about my experience in the new age and occult and my eventual return to the faith. It’s my hope to make this book available in my Etsy shop by the end of this year

My YouTube Channel
As a Catholic writer, designer and holistic nurse with years of experience in the new age and occult, I’ve learned that our Catholic faith can provide us with everything we need to live a life that fully nourishes our body, mind and spirit.
My YouTube channel is aimed at new agers, ex new agers and interested Catholics looking for alternatives to new age practices and modalities, spiritual warfare resources and info on Catholic lifestyle and spirituality.
My Etsy Shop
During COVID, I started a new Etsy printables shop called Catholic Book And Card in order to feature the Catholic prayer cards, prayer pamphlets and related items I had begun to design for myself and friends.
I hope to make upcoming ebooks and ebooklets available through the shop – including some new resources on spiritual warfare.
You can visit the shop at CatholicBookAndCard.com.
My Blog Posts and Articles
I began the blog on this website to have a place to talk about my Catholic faith, writing, spiritual warfare and selling on Etsy. I also post some slightly more targeted articles on new age deception and Catholic alternatives to new age practices at NewAgeToCatholic.com.
My eBook Publishing Company
I started St. Joan’s Press to have an umbrella LLC for my online content, ebooks and printables. St. Joan’s Press is named after my confirmation saint, St. Joan of Arc.
