Give Away: Broken Gods: Hope, Healing, and the Seven Longings of the Human Heart {Book Review Hangout and Podcast}


**Give-away**, Book Review, Books, Hang Outs, Podcasts, Simplemama Podcast / Thursday, June 4th, 2015

I’m so excited to share this next book review about Broken Gods: Hope, Healing, and the Seven Longings of the Human Heart by Dr. Gregory Popcack! Thanks to Image Catholic Books for the chance to read it in exchange for my honest review.

Reading Broken Gods was like going to a therapy session and spiritual direction all at once. For me, this is the first time I’ve read something that combines the more secular ideas of psychology and neuroscience (which is so fascinating!) with true authentic Catholicism. I loved that!

For those who may not know much about Dr. Popcak, he blogs at Faith on the Couch and is the Executive Director of the Pastoral Solutions Institute. He is also the author of over a dozen popular books you may have heard of or read like For Better…FOREVER!, Parenting with Grace, Beyond the Birds and the Bees, Holy Sex! (Yup I did just write that) and many more that I need to read!

Dr. Popcack and his wife, Lisa, also host the More2Life radio show on Ave Maria Radio, which I just subscribed to the podcasts of it and am excited to listen to!

With all that, I feel incredibly privileged that I was able to Hang Out with Dr. Popcack and chat about Broken Gods: Hope, Healing, and the Seven Longings of the Human Heart.

If you’d like to see what we talked about, you can watch our Hang Out here (the shorter version) or, if you’ve got a bit more time, click here (the extended full version) in which we talk more about mom guilt and the desire to be recognized, even if all we do all day is changer diapers and feed little people all day long. 😉

Or, if you’d rather listen to this while you’re out and about or folding laundry or in the kitchen or wherever, you can also listen to the audio file here (for the shorter version) or here (for the original full version). They aren’t too different, but sometimes 15 minutes can make a big difference in attention spans. 😉

In more ways than one, this book came into my life at just the right time! I’m thankful he took the time to write it and share it with us. This book, is really something that I think so many people need – I want to get one for everyone!

While I can’t get a book to everyone, I am able to give away at least one for now!

  1. From looking at the table of contents of book on Amazon, of the divine longings it lists I would say that I most long for either peace or trust.

    1. Hi Danielle, thanks for coming by and commenting! Yes, I definitely crave peace. I think that’s why I have a hard time dealing with my kids’ squabbling all the time. 😉
