We’ve wanted to have Tommy Tighe on the show ever since Haley’s family met the Tighes on their road trip around the country last summer.
Tommy is a husband, father, and marriage and family therapist in the Bay area. He writes for CatholicMom.com and Aleteia and co-hosts the Catholic Hipster Podcast with Sarah Vabulas. He is also king of Catholic Twitter (did you even know there’s such a thing?). His Catholic hipster book will be published by Ave Maria Press Fall 2017.
We don’t remember an episode where we’ve laughed so hard as we did with Tommy. We cover Haley’s composting toilet, what the heck Canadians dip their french fries in, and the insanity of social media. But the conversation does get very serious when we discuss the death of Tommy’s newborn son, Luke, this past spring. Tommy was willing to share about the pain his family has been experiencing and how we all can do better to support families experiencing grief or crisis. He has some great wisdom to share about how to show up for your friends when they’re suffering and what to say and what not to say.
We loved talking with Tommy we think this episode is going to be helpful and inspiring. It’s a great episode, so grab some coffee and listen in!

How to connect with Tommy:
And I (Haley) didn’t want to miss this opportunity to share a really amazing deal with you wonderful listeners! The day after this episode is published (September 21st) this year’s Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle Sale begins. It’s a fantastic library of resources on women’s hormonal health, raising healthy kids, replacing toxic products with green DIYs, using essential oils safely, getting fit, homesteading, gardening, healing your gut, and oodles of cookbooks including paleo, real food, and allergy-friendly.
While not every book will apply to everyone (and really, who has time to read 83 books!) at $29.97 it’s such a steal even if you only use 4 or 5 of the resources. Be sure to check out all that’s included so that you don’t miss it! It’s only 6 days long.
Since one of my ebooks isn’t included in this particular bundle, as a thank you to FoC listeners for ordering through my affiliate link (which benefits my family at no additional cost to you!) I want to offer any one of my four ebooks for FREE.
Listeners can choose from my liturgical living cookbooks Feast! and More Feasts!, Daniel’s gluten-free breakfast cookbook Beyond the Cereal Box, and my most recent ebook Making Big Life Changes Together: Pursuing Your Dreams as a Couple. Just go to this Google Doc after you purchase your bundle and tell me your book choice and email address so I know where to send your free book. Thanks!
