On Faith, Fears, and Finding Treasure (Break Out the Shovels)

Dear friends,

We’re back! I missed you so much last week (when my husband and I traveled to visit family and celebrated our fourth anniversary) that I just had to make it up to you this week. As such, I have not one, but two guest posts to share with you today.

The first guest post is at Elizabeth Esther’s blog. Esther writes courageously about recovery from fundamentalist religion. I can’t wait to read her forthcoming book, Girl at the End of the World. I’m thrilled (and terrified) to share, “Faith is like Walking into the Deluge…”.

The next guest post is at Write to Done, a site created by Leo Babauta and edited by Mary Jaksch. Write to Done is devoted to helping people become better writers, and I’m honored to be part of that effort through How to Face Your Fears and Write, No Matter What.

Welcome, readers from ElizabethEsther.com and Write to Done! I’m thrilled to welcome you to A Wish Come Clear. Be sure to pick up your free copy of Your Creed of Care: How to Dig for Treasure in People (Without Getting Buried Alive).

Speaking of Your Creed of Care, I received this email (reprinted with permission) from a reader named Kelly:

“Hi Caroline. I love the title of your book and just have to tell you a little story of my own.  My son has Autism. He is twelve. You can fill in the blanks. One day, when I was particularly exasperated after a week of being hit, grabbed and cursed at, my son turned to me and said, ‘Mom, I have a lot of good things in my heart. I just need you to help me dig them out.'”

Here’s to helping each other do just that, today and always.

Love,

Caroline

Welcome S-O-S (And A Free Ebook Link)

Welcome to the special Tuesday edition of A Wish Come Clear! I’m pleased to welcome guests from the “S-O-S for Parents” blog. What’s S-O-S? “S-O-S for Parents is dedicated to supporting parents who have children with “invisible” special needs such as ADHD/ADD, autism, Aspergers, anxiety, sensory processing disorder, social skills deficits, play skills deficits, mental illness, and more.”

A Wish Come Clear is featured today in their ‘Best of the Best’ roundup, under ‘Siblings.’ Thank you, Danette, for this opportunity!

Guests from S-O-S, I encourage you to look at posts in a category of your choosing. Also, subscriptions are most welcome.

For those of you who have read this (early) post before ~ your regularly-scheduled Wednesday post will be out tomorrow. Until that time, I’ll leave you with a link to the ebook I’ve been enjoying – (the free version of) Leo Babauta’s “Focus:  Simplicity in an age of distraction.” It’s one of the best free ebooks out there. Happy reading!

Namaste,

Caroline
