We think traumas are big things, like tornados blowing up your house, abuse, wrecks, and tragic death.
But trauma is any place where your capacity for pain exceeds your capacity for joy.
By that definition, we've all endured trauma, and are probably still carrying around some of the inner baggage.
Want to learn how to recognize your inner trauma, accept it, and bring it into relationship with unconditional love?
In episode 003: Managing Trauma, Lucas and I discuss the second chapter in my upcoming book, Heart Made Whole, and give practical tools to healing from trauma of all degrees.

I sat outside on my back porch, which has honey suckle bushes climbing up the side and listened to your episode 2 and for the first time in my life I felt like, really felt lead by the Holy Spirit in my mind through scenes he brought to my head, connection! and the love and wisdom pouring through you and your husbands words just washed over me and tears flowed freely and hard and for the first time I was seeing how much God loves me, loves us all and what his death means and that I really am just now discovering what love is. Really is. Wow! Just wow! This series is a blessing!! Perfect love casts out fear and I have believed fear over love for a long long time. Thank you, thank you!
Thank you so much for sharing your heart and your journey with us through your podcasts, blogs, and books! You have no idea how many people you are impacting. I personally appreciate your vulnerability and courage to be real no matter what. Thank you for walking in freedom and paving the way for others. You’re doing a wonderful job and what you are sharing really matters and is making a difference. I am very thankful for you and your Studhubs examples as my husband and I walk through losing our first two children.
Thank you for your stories. I am tentatively joining the world of social media, a little leery of what I might find. I am so glad to discover similar minded folks sharing their God-centered broken lives and stories with the world. I too am trying to walk in reluctant obedience by opening up my life to the world. It’s nothing I ever thought I would do, and I’m freaked out! Please stop by and say hello.
Is there a way to listen on an android phone?
in your phone browser – it might work
i use the app Podcast Addict and can listen to christa and lucas there!
I was just referred to your website yesterday by a friend over a cup of coffee. I am SO glad. Seeing you addressing trauma and the ability to take those broken pieces and make them our biggest strengths/successes is profound.
My background as a social worker always has me looking in the face of broken realities while desperately trying point out the good that can or has come out of it.
A tricky balance to find so as to not discount pain, but necessary in order to not embrace hopelessness.
Thank you for doing this so wonderfully. I’m subscribing and cannot wait to hear more from you.
