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.
- Verwell Mind has some intriguing bits to share about the emerging science of intergenerational trauma and epigenetics.
- “The beautiful thing about praying with Mary through her sorrows is that we realize we are not alone in ours.” MaryBeth Eberhard is at Catholic Mom with Opening Our Hearts.
- “Among the book’s key takeaways, the researchers found that… 70 percent had previously experienced childhood trauma.” I mean… surprise? How to Stop School Shooter Violence.
- Many of us struggle with thinking we have to do it all and do it perfectly–leading to overwhelm. Lisa Simmons is at Catholic Mom with God Bless My Drunk Squirrels: a Lesson in Letting Go and Letting God.
- Many trauma survivors & mental health warriors battle insomnia. Rachel Watkins is at Catholic Mom with Sleeping Well.
- Maria Gallagher at Catholic Mom writes about riding the wave of our emotions in Are You There, God?
- Ending with your weekly reminder 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 this month’s An Open Book from Carolyn Astfalk & Catholic Mom.
For this week’s media, I’m delighted to share my chat with Rachel at To Grow Good, a podcast devoted to sharing the faith through conversion & reversion stories.
