Here’s me, doing my bit to participate weekly in Kelly’s Seven Quick Takes over at This Ain’t the Lyceum.
This Week’s Resources for Catholic Trauma Survivors
Takes. Best described as quick. Seven of them.
- Father’s Day is this weekend. What a Father We Have in Saint Joseph!
- On that note, if you’re feeling tender and alone around Father’s Day, let’s be alone together. Join me tomorrow, Saturday, June 19 at 3pm Eastern US Time for a Google Meet: Dad’s Day Dessert Party. All emotions welcome. Email me for the join link.
- Trauma got you feeling like you have ADD? ADD got you feeling traumatized? Your feelings are–surprise!–valid, and science says so.
- I’m aware of the irony of someone giving you seven links to visit regarding trauma and toxic relationships, but here are 10 Signs of Toxic Self-awareness & How to Escape This Rabbit Hole.
- It’s a Lenten article, but as Catholics, we know how to find the Lent in Ordinary Time–or we know sometimes that Lent finds us no matter the liturgical season: Conversion Begins With Healing.
- Deanna Bartalini is at Catholic Mom with a great reminder: Our Children Are Not Our Own.
- Ending with the official announcement that All Things New: Breaking the Cycle and Raising a Joyful Family is available for purchase. Already read your copy? Leave a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads, and don’t forget to link up with An Open Book from Carolyn Astfalk & Catholic Mom for July 7.
For this week’s media, I invite you to listen to my discussion with Kim Cameron-Smith on the Gentle Catholic Parenting podcast.
