IMG_3017Oh man, y'all. This is one of my favorite shows to date. If you don't already know about Rachel Hollis, you are going to love getting to know her so much. If you've been following Rachel for a while, this show is more of everything you love about her – honest and hilarious conversation, just like a real happy hour should be.

Rachel and her family live in Los Angeles where she owns and runs a lifestyle media company called The Chic Site. She and her team are passionate about helping women feel better about ourselves, in a digital age that bullies us into feeling less than and inadequate. She and I chat about the myth of work-life balance, and managing family time while chasing our dreams.

And the part that I know you will love is hearing Rachel share how reading Jen Hatmaker's Interrupted drastically changed the course of their lives. Her family had been pursuing international adoption for several years, until God suddenly called them to foster to adopt in Los Angeles, and act of obedience and faith that is costing them some comfort and safety.

{You can listen to our conversation HERE. And I would love if you would share with your friends. Just use the FB & Twitter links at the end of this post!}
