About this episode…

Are you a people pleaser?? Have a hard time saying “no”? Today’s guest, Karen Ehman, helps us break the pattern of people pleasing. This has been a huge topic among my friends and I. How do we say “no” in a kind way? Is it possible? Karen helps answer these questions! It’s not all about saying “no” – it’s about discerning what’s for you and what’s not. SUCH A GOOD TOPIC for all of us! If you feel overstretched, need some help identifying what’s for you and what’s not, and how to communicate that you won’t be stepping in for someone when you’re used to being constantly available, listen up!

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.
