About this episode…

Our girl, Rebekah Lyons, is back! If you know Rebekah then you know she’s all about rhythms in your life, taking inventory of what’s working and what’s not and today she’s sharing with us when and how to say yes to God in the legit surrendered way not the obligated, mopey “yes” that we often think or hear of. What if it was a joy to say yes to God. It might be for you, and that is amazing sis! But, many times, when we sit in quiet and ask what the Lord has for us, we can be frightened by his answer, confused by his answer or not hear his answer at all. If you feel like this, then this episode was made with you in mind. “A Surrendered Yes: 52 devotions to let go and live free” is Rebekah’s news devotional and it is an amazing, practical way to walk through what we’re talking about today. We link this, Rebekah’s other books and a few things that we mention in our show notes. You can find that by going to or by clicking the link in the description of the episode in whatever podcast app you’re listening in. Today’s episode is going to leave you feeling full of inspiration, with great tools and practicals to find your next “yes” in your life and wanting to hug Rebekah because she’s just that great. We have some updates coming at ya for the podcast that I’m really excited and eager to share. Make sure you click “subscribe” or “download” on the show to make sure you don’t miss that update when it goes live. If you love the show, we’d love to hear your encouragement and support – it truly gets our team through the days! You can leave a review in apple podcasts and this actually helps us reach more people with the love and encouragement that you can find inside our episodes. You mean the world to me and I think about you every time I have the honor of sitting behind the microphone. You should know that. And I pray that today’s episode meets you wherever you are and helps you get excited about being the best version of you that you can be.

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.
