Who Am I?

My name is Steve Skojec. I hold a BA in Communication Arts and Theology. I’ve been a professional writer for over a decade, and in addition to my own websites and publication, my commentary has appeared in in The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, The Washington Times, Crisis Magazine, EWTN, Huffington Post Live, The Fox News Channel, Foreign Policy, and the BBC.

In 2014, I founded a non-profit Catholic publication called OnePeterFive.

After seven years of examining the crisis in the Catholic Church, I’ve realized how broken our ability to make sense of things has become, even guided by time-tested institutions and beliefs.

In 2021, I started regularly writing at this Substack as a means of exploring the big questions of our existence without feeling trapped inside of a very narrow religious perspective. This is where my more out of the box, unfettered writing goes. It’s about life, purpose, meaning, self-awareness, beauty, art, culture, and whatever else strikes me as Things That Matter.

I’m also a husband and a dad to a large family. My wife Jamie and I are expecting our 8th child this summer.

Why subscribe?

You can sign up to get some of the content here for free, not only on the web, but delivered straight to your inbox.

And that’s great, but a paid subscription is only $5 a month and it buys you more: full access to The Skojec File newsletter and website. The ability to leave comments and interact with our growing community. Content that’s delivered ONLY to insiders. This Substack is a work in progress, but it’s my plan to deliver as much value to subscribers as possible.

This Substack is still pretty new, and is a work in progress. My writing and media content is how I provide for my growing family, and I seek to offer you something of value in exchange for your hard-earned dollars.
