Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, doing, listening to, watching or pondering.
What I’m reading – The Mental Health Crisis is affecting teens particularly. It’s a problem that won’t be going away anytime soon. All parents and grandparents need to be aware and educated on the struggles young people face. My dear colleague and friend Roy Petitfils has just released the book: Helping Teens with stress, anxiety and depression: A field guide for Catholic parents, pastors and you leaders. Get it now!
What I’m watching – I proudly confess to be a fan of the cbs series NCIS. This season, I’ve missed a few episodes and so I’m taking time to get caught up. One of the very few network shows I watch.
What I’m listening to – Celtic Psalms by Eden’s Bridge is a delightful refreshing rendition of sacred psalms in the Celtic Tradition. I listen to this album often: on the back porch, typing and planning at my desk and when I just want subtle and soothing music in the background.
Quote I’m pondering – Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship.~ Omar N. Bradley
Affordable Counseling at the Pax Renewal Center – We have two excellent graduate student interns who are working here at the PRC. We welcome Claire Haydel and Auriel Campbell. Our graduate student interns are able to offer excellent counseling service at a greatly reduced rate. If you know of someone who would benefit from their service, give us a call.
Listen in – On Thursday nights from 8-9 PM (cst) I host the program, ‘Brokenhearted’ on Radio Maria.us. You can stream it live if you can’t get it over the airwaves. You can also go to Radio Maria and listen to previously recorded broadcasts of the program.
