About this Episode…

This week, Rachel has on her friend, Katie Hodges, for a conversation about choosing love in all circumstances. Katie and her husband walked through a tough season where she learned a ton about herself, her spouse and the Lord and his love for us. We talk about counseling, a meaning of marriage, discontentedness with a current season you may be in and more. This isn’t just an episode for married Individuals, so if you’re single dating or engaged, don’t tune out. In fact, this is all of the more reasons to turn it up and listen in. Enjoy!

Regardless of your current season or relationship status, I hope you leave feeling chosen, known and loved. Katie and I’s prayer for you is that you lean into the Fathers love and His peace that surpasses all understanding when life gets hard. Instead of turning away, we pray you turn in and embrace the love Jesus paid for. Our story may not be one we signed up for or volunteered to go through but it’s one where we experience the Lords fullness when the Things of this world fall short.

A few things we mentioned…

Charlotte Tilbury Eye Crayon

“When Sinners Say I Do”
