Ep 735 | WE’RE BACK! The Secret to Happiness for Women Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey

    • News Commentary

We're back, Relata-belles and Relata-bros! Today, we're starting by asking the question: Should Christians concern themselves with setting New Year's resolutions? We discuss the need for renewed hope in addition to stability, routine, and sameness. Then, we take a look at an article on motherhood, which denounces toxic mommy culture and states that marriage and motherhood tend to actually be intertwined with happiness. Children are not deterrents to our happiness; they're gifts with the capacity to multiply joy and fulfillment. We look at a study on antidepressants, which shows that older white women account for the majority of people who take them. We talk about why this makes sense when we consider the kind of mixed messages that are shoved into their faces. Then, a little update from Clown World as we break down the most confusing headline of late, and we give an update on a speaking engagement and reiterate why satire is so important.
