About this episode…

It’s not a secret that the hidden parts of motherhood can be lonely and overwhelming: the dishes, the diapers, the constant snacks, the tantrums. But, what if there was more for us in these moments than just checking things off of a list? Mama of 5 and today’s guest, Anna McParlan, has a special way of pointing out the holy that can be found in the mundane. This show is for anyone but especially the mom that is feeling a bit in over her head.

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.
