About this episode…

Our guest today says it best: your body is more than its size, its sickness or its symptoms. You were made for more than a love/hate relationship with your body. Have you ever felt stuck in the tension of shame around your body? You work out to fit a certain image, you think critical thoughts as you enjoy one of your favorite meals – you know the drill. It’s time this stopped and that you found freedom! Today, we’re talking about how to find that freedom, what the Bible has to say about our bodies, and how to start believing, and acting like, they’re good!

A few things we mentioned…

I am an online encourager based out of Birmingham, AL that's obsessed with my girls and sharing bits and pieces of my life. I wear a lot of hats these days including mama to two boys, military wife, blogger, podcast host and more. You can find me behind the microphone at Real Talk with Rach where we talk about everything from jeans to Jesus, playlists to pop culture, the good and the grief and everything in between.
