As women we work hard not to compare ourselves to each other. We know we shouldn't and that it's unhealthy, but it's always easier said than done.  Mikala has taken a break from social media and I (Rachel) am more obsessed than ever! Careers, parenting, relationships, faith, mental health and much more are all impacted by what we see on the grid. What would it look like if we STOPPED playing the comparison game and learned to live as ourselves??? Relationship goals are tough because two people with very different everythings are working to make a life together. Relationship challenges are...

Carl Lentz isn't the first megachurch pastor to wear skinny jeans, tight button down shirts, or cheat on his spouse. So where is this problem coming from and how do we as both leaders and church members change what is happening? There is also a definite double standard toward female church leaders and females in any visibly position. Our conversation was instigated by an article written by Katelyn Beaty, which you can find .

As a followup to our conversation about Kamala Harris, we invited someone with a very different perspective to talk to us. We had to reschedule at the last minute, but since we were already on a call might as well record, right? I (Rachel) just took a 23andMe.com DNA test and was surprised by Brooks' results. Mikala has taken one, too, so we cover a little of that. Which led to Angelina Jolie and what you would do if you knew you had a likelihood of getting cancer or you were actually diagnosed with cancer. Instagram Mikala Rachel Resources

Pieces of Grit

Mikala suggested discussing calling and I just about gagged. Knowing that we disagreed on this topic and how the church has put so much pressure on women to find their "calling", we decided to jump into this conversation without knowing any details about what the other was going to say. Find us on social media and let us know your perspective on calling and the experience you've had in finding that calling. Instagram Mikala Rachel Resources by Greg Michael Levoy by William C.

There has been a lot of negativity coming from people who didn't vote for Kamala Harris. I'm surprised it came from women, so Mikala and I decided to discuss how breaking glass ceilings and being the first in any area is both challenging and rewarding.

Abby had been a world travel, living and teaching abroad, adventuring as she worked out her personal identity and navigated the aftermath of a broken engagement and relational trauma.

She met and married the love of her life, they were settling in to a new city, she was building her career and working on her personal growth, then came the blow of the century.

Diagnosed with a form of cancer so rare her initial oncologist wouldn't even treat her. After being diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, she started chemotherapy within 48 hours and spent 21 straight days in the hospital.

She has just started a new teaching job, Abby had also recently stepped into a leadership role with the youth at her church and now she had to not only lead herself down this path, but was setting an example of faith for all of these kids through her leadership.

I have loved watching Abby through this season. Barely 30 years old she speaks with wisdom and grace. An enneagram type 2, she is also learning how to focus on her well-being and health.

I could fill a book with the takeaways she shares. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did recording it.
