A Letter to the Woman Learning How to Love Herself


- Julia Hogan, MS, LCPC, is the author of a brand new book, “It’s OK to Start With You”. You can pick up a copy of her book (which comes highly recommended from this podcast!) from Our Sunday Visitor, your local Catholic bookstore, or at Amazon.

- A great way to learn about your Catholic faith (and an incredible saint who lived out the feminine genius!) is reading a book that Julia is reading right now, “33 Days to Merciful Love” by Father Michael Gaitley.

- It’s time we reject lies surrounding self-care. Here’s a blog I wrote earlier this year on four lies we need to not give the time of day to.

- A song that I mentioned in this podcast episode is one that’s radically changed my prayer life this year. Check out “Pieces” by Amanda Cook (and this gorgeous music video that goes along with it!)

- Want to know more about how you’re God’s beloved daughter? A book I can’t recommend enough on the subject is “Life of the Beloved” by Henri Nouwen.

- Motherhood isn’t about being perfect. Want to know more about why being a imperfect mom is okay? Check out “A Letter to the Imperfect Mom” and “Good Enough is Good Enough” by Colleen Duggan.

- Another book Julia and I mentioned was “The Mindful Catholic: Finding God One Moment at a Time

- Julia mentioned studies that emphasize the importance of gratitude. You can read more about that here.

- Julia and I both love FemCatholic. You can check out the blog here, and join the Facebook group here!
