Celebrating One Year of the Podcast

This feels wild, but it has been one full year since we started our podcast! When I started telling people at the end of 2022 that I wanted to start a podcast, it felt like this big, crazy dream that was just too much. There were a million things I didn’t know or understand about how a podcast gets out into the world. 

Could I actually make this happen? And even if I did learn and do all the things, who would listen? I questioned whether or not I would have enough to share to keep it going longer than a few weeks. 

But God! Ephesians 3 tells us He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, and that is exactly what He has done here. 

 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

Is It Worth It?

At our most recent Renewal Retreat this past February, I was asked if creating this podcast has been worth all of the time and effort over the past year and if I would keep going with it. The answer is 100% YES on both counts, and I want you to know it’s because you are worth it. 

Does the planning, writing, recording, editing, and publishing all feel like a lot sometimes? Absolutely! But the feedback I’ve received from the amazing women who listen each week – that is what keeps me going. It’s not praise for me or how awesome this podcast is! It’s praise for the message God is sharing through this platform. As long as He puts the words on my heart and in my mouth, I’ve got to show up and share them for the women who need to hear them. 

So let’s do a quick recap of the episodes that have resonated most with our community over the past year. 

Solo Episodes

The first solo episode was Episode 1 – Are Productivity and Hustle the same thing? Spoiler alert: The answer is a resounding NO! I started everything off with personal stories from my life when I was trying to get All The Things done.

After Episode 1, here are the top 5 solo episodes to this point:

Guest Interviews

Our first guest interview was Episode 2 – Slow Growth and Capacity with Mary Marantz. How did I get lucky enough to have such a brilliant author as my first podcast guest? NO IDEA. But we dove into personal capacity, why we take on too much, and tools & strategies to overcome feeling overwhelmed.

After that first interview, here are the top 5 guest episodes to this point:

You Are Worth It

With 43 episodes under our belt, that means there have been so many hours spent in conversation, reading, studying, writing, recording, editing, and sharing. Every single one has been worth it. I’m excited to see what God has planned for us over the course of this next year.

TITLE: So needed and challenging in the best way

“We all need that friend that can tell us the truth in love! Thank you Rachel for taking the step of being that friend to us! We can not trade hustle for our life! There is a way to live well and I am glad you remind us!”

Thank you so much for writing that review, Daisyfd! It’s the best way to let the algorithm fairies know to promote our podcast to other women who might need it. And it blesses my heart to know God spoke to you through this platform.
