A graduate of Benedictine College, Beth Sri was among the first FOCUS missionaries in the country. Today, in addition to raising eight children with her husband, Edward, Beth continues to lead and invest in those around her. You will often find her encouraging women who are living the call to marriage and motherhood through mentorship, small-group gatherings, and retreats.
Together, Edward and Beth co-wrote The Good, the Messy, and the Beautiful: The Joys and Struggles of Real Married Life, published by Ascension in 2022.
Beth is a contributor to The Ave Prayer Book for Catholic Mothers and a presenter in the acclaimed film series Beloved: Finding Happiness in Marriage. She speaks at conferences on the topics of healing, spirituality, marriage, and motherhood, as well as helping to lead retreats for the Life-Giving Wounds ministry for adult children of divorce, for which she also serves on the board of directors.
Beth has been a guest on many podcasts, including Among the Lilies, Made for Love, Catholic Answers, and All Things Catholic, and occasionally leads pilgrimages with her husband to Rome.
Though not Italian, she relishes cooking up autentico Italian food for her growing family. When she’s not in the kitchen making a quadruple batch of pasta or chauffeuring children to and fro, Beth can be found on a long run out in the Colorado sunshine, curled up with an annotated Jane Austen novel, or boisterously cheering for her kids at their soccer games.
Beth and her husband, Edward, live in Colorado with their eight children.
