Tsh Oxenreider

is a writer of books + a fairly fantastic newsletter, a travel guide, & a long-time podcaster. Yep, it’s spelled correctly.
(More here.)


Tsh’s newest bestselling book, Shadow & Light, is a journey through the season of Advent, and she’s currently writing a companion follow-up for the season of Lent. Her most well-known book is At Home in the World, a travel memoir about what she learned about belonging when her family traveled around the world for a school year, living out of backpacks. She’s also currently working on fiction.

Most summers Tsh leads a small group of women to one of her favorite cities in the world as they unpack what we can all learn, inside and out, from some of the world’s greatest storytellers.

A Drink With a Friend

After many years of podcasting, Tsh has collaborated with long-time friend and fellow writer Seth Haines to create a show where they dive into what it means to live sacramentally — to notice the beauty, goodness, and truth beneath every nook and cranny.

Create Your Rule of Life

A Rule of Life is simply a commitment to live your life in a particular way. Once it’s written, it becomes a tool to help you make decisions and choices to best order your days.

Tsh’s own Rule of Life has become a life-giving balm for her daily decision-making, and she’d love to show you how she created it so you can make yours, too.

The Commonplace

Alongside her work, Tsh is also a wife, mom to three, fan of British period television, nomadic homebody, and a 4w5 INTJ newly-Catholic Ravenpuff. (If you know what any of those mean, you’re her people.)

She writes a short weekly email called 5 Quick Things, where she shares stuff she either created or loved from the week.
