40. Help I’m Drowning: An interview with Sally Clarkson
Latte and Laundry
This week we were so blessed to spend time chatting with author, speaker, blogger, podcaster, and spiritual mother to many- Sally Clarkson. Her new book “Help I’m Drowning: Weathering the Storms of Life with Grace and Hope” couldn’t be available at a more critical time in our world today. With the intense political atmosphere, pandemic woes, overseas crisis, new school year and fall activities kicking into gear, Sally’s book so beautifully speaks into the hearts of many. This world is broken and fallen, yet there is an untouchable hope, a hope beyond measure and His name is Jesus Christ. In this book Sally shares many of her own experiences of suffering and brokenness during her many years of walking with Christ. We hope this discussion can give you just a small taste into the beautiful woman that Sally is and a preview of her powerful book. Below you can find a link to her amazing book!“In this world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world!” ~John 16:33.

Even without the overwhelm of the pandemic exhausting us both physically and emotionally, life inevitably brings storms our way. Storms that we can ride out with God or storms that we allow to sweep us away. Sally Clarkson, author, speaker and mentor of moms, joins me to talk about how to weather the storms of life with grace and hope. We talk about how some anchors we can put down in stormy times, pushing into friendships, filling our cups when we are depleted and parenting our kids through life’s disappointments. Sally also shares about how weathering life’s storms helps us care for others who are experiencing hard times better. “Sometimes in my life I think Jesus wanted me to grow up a little bit because it was in facing my storms, learning to walk through them that I was humbled. I learned a lot. I had more compassion for other people going through storms. I feel like the story that you live becomes the platform for your compassion for other people.” Connect with Sally: Website: sallyclarkson.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/therealsallyclarkson/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sally.clarkson/ More Episodes with Sally: [Ep 54] How to Own Your Life :: Sally Clarkson [Ep 107] Create a Home of Belonging & Becoming :: Sally Clarkson [Ep 149] Loving Your Difficult Child :: Sally and Nathan Clarkson [Ep 233] Cultivating Friendships in a World of Isolation :: Sally Clarkson Links Mentioned: BOOK: Help, I'm Drowning: Weathering the Storms of Life with Grace and Hope PDF: A Written Lament - She Reads Truth WORKBOOK: Mourning and Dancing from She Reads Truth BOOK: This Beautiful Truth by Sarah Clarkson Featured Sponsors: Athena—Show your skin you care with the Athena Club Razor Kit!

It feels like we’ve weathered some pretty significant storms the last 18 months, both in the world at large as well as individually and as families. If you’re anything like me, there have been hard places that have caused you to cry out to God and, at times, even question his plans. I’m so thankful that Sally Clarkson is here today talking about the hard places we face, reminding us that storms are our training grounds for obeying God’s Word and walking in his ways. Sally shares with us some of the storms she’s personally faced and how walking with God has allowed her to build a life on the rock of eternal values. We talk very practically of these important topics: how to to observe but not internalize the difficulties we face, the role of our feelings when we’re struggling, walking our kids through hard things and the trap of busyness and distraction, raising kids who are out of the box, and tips for weathering marriage difficulties Some days it’s nice to have someone just a little further down the road giving us perspective and wisdom. Today is one of those days, and Sally Clarkson is just the right person for the job!
FoC 162: What To Do When You’re Drowning with Sally Clarkson
The Fountains of Carrots Podcast
Do the storms of life ever catch you by surprise? We often navigate our days expecting smooth sailing and are unprepared for the storms that inevitably arise. None of us could have anticipated how stormy the past two years have been, of course! But have they been even harder because we anticipate ease in our lives? Have you found yourself lacking the resources you need to weather life’s storms? Today’s guest Sally Clarkson is here to help! Sally is well known for her wonderful podcast, her many (many!) books, and her ministry to mothers and families. She has four amazing grown kids and is now a grandmother! She is so gifted and talented, but what we love most about her is how she encourages women and challenges us to be faithful. Sally is inspiring because her life has had storms and she has learned to cultivate the virtues and habits that make it possible to survive them. Her newest book Help, I’m Drowning: Weathering the Storms of Life with Grace on Hope is on this theme. In this episode Sally shares some of the storms she’s faced and we share some of ours as well. We talk about preparing ourselves for storms and practical things we have learned to do to get through hard times. Habits of faith, self-care, grace for ourselves and others, and strong relationships can help us develop what we need to weather life. We think you’ll be so inspired by Sally’s wisdom and encouragement! Sponsor: CatholicMatch This episode is sponsored by the largest dating app specifically for single Catholics: CatholicMatch!

TTM #73: The Impact of Cultivating a Lifegiving Table with Sally Clarkson
Titus 2 Minute: A bite-sized podcast for Christian women
In our generation of fast food and being too busy to sit around a dinner table, I want my family to be different. I want to create a lifegiving table for my family, and for those we invite into our home. In today's episode, we are joined by Sally Clarkson as she gives some great advice on the topic.
As I look at the landscape of our times, I see a need for hope, strong faith, foundations of good character and integrity. All of these needs have been a part of humanity for generations. Women who caught a vision of becoming civilizers, life-givers, shapers of souls, were the ones who instilled these attributes through their homes. It was the conversations at the meals, bedtime blessings, morning prayers, that created human beings who learned to thrive in real life.
Author Sally Clarkson’s son, Nathan, was diagnosed with multiple disorders as a child. Now an adult, he and his mom are building bridges for parents and kids with not-so-easy dynamics so that they too can realize “What Makes You Different Makes You Great.” Lean in. Sally (sallyclarkson.com) is here to tell us all the upsides of not being normal! Learn more about Bridges ...
