Hi! I’m Mary Ruth Hackett
And Yes, I go by both Mary and Ruth! I write and speak at the important intersection of faith and science, blending them both in the original harmony God intended. Daughter by Design, my book on identity for Catholic women is the only book of its kind and brings together these fields in a practical way.
After earning my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology, I left the halls of academia to be a stay-at-home mom. Still a scholar at heart, I have a huge passion for helping families integrate the best of developmental science, the Catholic faith, and their own unique parenting styles.
