Katie Sciba is a mom of four and the voice behind TheCatholicWife.net. She and her husband Andrew live in Louisiana and since Haley’s in nearby Texas, she actually got to meet Katie at a blogging weekend this Spring! Katie is also a a three-time Catholic Press Award-winning columnist for her diocesan magazine: Shreveport’s Catholic Connection as well as a speaker.
We knew we wanted to have Katie on the podcast after reading a brave and wonderful post she wrote recently on struggling with anxiety. Since Christy and I and most of the women we know have struggled with anxiety at some point in their lives, we really wanted to dive deep into this rarely discussed topic and talk about how women can heal and find support.
In this episode we asked Katie to share a bit of her story about facing anxiety and depression and then we pondered why this is such a common problem for women in our culture. We also covered some ideas for healing and how to get help and support when you feel like you’re drowning in anxiety. We hope that this episode will shed light on the unspoken suffering that comes with mental illness and encourage women to support each other, offer themselves some grace in the trenches, and seek help when they need it.
It’s a great episode, so grab some coffee and listen in!
