about this episode

Welcome to a unique episode of Real Talk with Rachel, where we’re taking a different approach to communication. Imagine a collection of voice memos exchanged in text form, offering unfiltered updates, random thoughts, and insights into the lessons the Lord is teaching me. In this candid episode, we’re embracing a more casual, off-the-cuff style of communication, where authenticity takes the forefront. So, let’s dive into this collection of “voice messages” from one “voice message” queen to another!

  1. Life Updates: Raw and Unfiltered

In this segment, I share real-time updates on what’s been happening in my life. From the mundane to the extraordinary, these voice memos capture the essence of everyday moments, unfiltered and unedited. It’s a glimpse into the ebb and flow of life, where I’ll share updates on personal milestones, challenges, and moments of joy. Join me as we embark on this journey of real-life updates, just like you would share with a friend.

  1. Random Thoughts: From Mind to Text

Ever have those moments when a random thought pops into your head, and you can’t help but share it with someone? In this segment, I offer a stream of consciousness style sharing, where I put my thoughts into text form. From musings on life’s big questions to observations about the world around us, these voice memos capture the unfiltered nature of the human mind. Join me as we explore these random thoughts together and see where they take us.

  1. Lessons from the Lord: Insights and Spiritual Growth

One of the most beautiful aspects of life is the lessons we learn along the way. In this segment, I share the insights and spiritual growth the Lord has been teaching me. These voice memos encapsulate moments of reflection, revelations from scripture, and personal experiences that have shaped my faith journey. As we dive into these messages, we can seek wisdom, find encouragement, and grow together in our relationship with God.

In this unique episode of Real Talk with Rachel, we’ve embarked on a candid and unfiltered journey through a collection of “voice messages” in text form. From life updates to random thoughts and lessons from the Lord, we’ve explored a range of topics in a casual, off-the-cuff style of communication.

Embracing authenticity and vulnerability, this episode captures the essence of everyday conversations between friends. It’s a reminder that we don’t always need a polished and professional presentation to connect and share our experiences. Sometimes, the raw and unfiltered moments are the ones that resonate the most.

Thank you for joining me on this intimate journey of sharing voice memos in text form. Real Talk with Rachel will continue to bring you authentic conversations and thought-provoking topics that inspire and uplift. Stay tuned for future episodes where we dive into the depths of life’s experiences, always with a commitment to genuine connection.

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.
