In The Tension

In The Tension

By Leticia O Adams
We have lost the ability to hold tension with one another and instead fall for the temptation to avoid difficult conversations and run to groups of people who agree with us rather than sit in spaces that hold tension that is part of the human condition. Sitting in the tension is also the way to healing.

Leticia and Laura: A Conversation with two Moms who survived the worst day of their life
Today's guest is Laura Kelly Fanucci who lost twin baby girls days after their birth. I reached out to Laura and asked her if she would come on and talk to me about grief, loss and life after seeing the story of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend losing their son Jack recently. Rarely do you hear two mothers who have lost children have a conversation. Most of the time it is a mother who has survived loss talking to someone who has not. So I felt there was space for us to have this conversation right now in this time with so much loss all around us. I hope it helps anyone who is finding themselves in the dark waves of grief and loss.  Laura Kelly Fanucci Mother, writer, wonderer. Seeker of God in chaos & life with kids.

Interview with Regina Boyd LMHC about Mental Health in 2020
I am so excited about this episode of In the Tension! I love therapy. I tell everyone I know that therapy is the best thing I have ever done. And I mean it. My therapist is one of my favorite people and I would buy her a house if I win the lottery. She has helped me so much in the last decade of my life.  So I am happy to have Regina on the podcast this week to talk about mental health, setting boundaries, and trauma.  Regina Boyd is the founder of Boyd Counseling Services, a Catholic/Christian licensed mental health practice that provides in-person and virtual therapy for couples, families, and teens. She works with clients who are experiencing life changes, desire a healthy emotional connection and seek to develop problem-solving strategies within their relationships. You can find her website here: https://www.reginaboyd.com/about-me And the link to her marriage course here: https://boydcounselingservices.thinkific.com/courses/discovering-deep-love Also, I will be posting a bonus episode on Patreon discussing the things that I do personally to help myself cope with stress.
