The heartbeat to Behind the Bliss is to create a space for women to share stories and their reality of what life is really like behind the bliss so that listeners leave feeling met in their mess and balanced in the bliss. We seek to show women there is more to life than what we see on each other’s highlight reels and there is power in vulnerably sharing the hard parts with the pretty parts of our lives in hopes that they would share their stories on their own platforms, too.

Listen to have life spoken over you!

Rachel and the guests she chooses are the perfect addition to your day and even your spiritual practices. Add this podcast in to your commute or “mundane” tasks to inject joy, scripture, laughter and scriptures. It will make your day better and it will help you stay connected to Jesus!!

The ideas, thoughts & solutions are real, practical and relatable. Every conversation is beautiful and it feels like a wonderful coffee date with a great girlfriend.

Life-giving messages!

Rachel (and truly all her guests!) are so encouraging and soul-filling folks 🤍 Listening to BTB every week is a highlight for me. Whether talking about super girly things like our favorite outfits and products or talking to our heart about motherhood, friendships, and relationships I just KNOW Rachel’s got the words we need to fuel our week. So much love for BTB!!

Such a fun, life-giving podcast! Rachel is the best host and such a sweet, genuine person. There is something in each episode for everyone. Even if you think a topic isn’t relevant for you now, it probably will be - or you have someone else in your life that could use it!
