stay tuned!

Let's take a swing at this together! I'm spilling all of the secrets in my course!


Oh my goodness, friends. We had our very first Behind the Bliss LIVE podcast recording this past week in Birmingham, Alabama. It has been a whirlwind to say the least.

Mary Scott arrived in Birmingham on Wednesday and it was time to hit the ground running to prep for giveaway bags, the launch of our new merchandise (it’s coming to our website soon, don’t worry!), photoshoots and so much more.

We have learned so much through this process, but there’s one thing we know for sure — we have the BEST community of listeners ever. People drove to Birmingham from Mississippi to Florida to Tennessee to spend their night with us. For that, we are truly grateful. One of the best takeaways from meeting our people in person was finally placing an audience we’ve never seen with real faces. Faces of women who instantly felt like our best friends. There was nothing like it.


How cute is our new t-shirt styled? Thanks to Fab’rik Homewood, these new shirts were debuted beautifully. Make sure to sign up for our email list to be the first to know when our new merchandise hits our virtual shelves on our website!



We had our audience submit questions when registering for the event so we tackled a few of them in the show. Topics like…

… how to handle + grow in hard seasons.
… tips for taking steps in making hard decisions both big and small.
… how to move beyond the dreaming phase and start taking action on big ideas.
… how we have seen God move in both big and small ways since starting the podcast.
… things we are currently learning in life.
… and our favorite things, of course 🙂

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.
