About this Episode:

In this episode, Ashlyn Carter shares her story of craving control and how it was all revealed to her through wrestling with eating disorders, depression and anxiety. She opens up about how this affected her marriage and her walk with the Lord and speaks directly to women who may find themselves in similar positions. If you love control, are feeling the stirring to surrender a piece of your life that you’ve yet to let go of or just need to hear how to love on someone that fits this description, this episode is for you! She has an incredible “buckle up and lean in” message for those that are in the middle of difficulty, a signal of hope and a testimony that we can all cling to in times of despair.

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.
