About this episode…

Let’s admit this together: We all want to be satisfied with life. It’s a goal to feel joy with what’s around us, hope for our circumstances (the good and bad), and contentment with right where we are but it’s a lot easier said than done. Whether you’re upset with a current situation, waiting for the next best thing, lonely and craving friendship today’s guest and my new friend Alyssa Bethke is here to encourage you in this! Alyssa and I are talking about how to move out of these lonely places, leaning into the small places of joy and hope in your every day to turn your perspective around for good and find satisfaction right where you are. News flash! You don’t have to do anything, have anything or be anything different to fill this emptiness, it’s a renewing of our minds where satisfaction finds its place in our lives. Alyssa has poured her heart and soul into a beautiful book that just came out all about this idea of Satisfaction!

In “Satisfied”, Alyssa shares a compelling collection of relatable essays that will help you embrace and cultivate beauty in your life. Along with healthy recipes and cozy home images, Satisfied will provide you with the knowledge that you are not alone in your fight to be fulfilled. Alyssa shows you the ways in which you are enough–not only for those around you but for yourself.

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.
