WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour #418 is Rachel Jones. Rachel Jones is the author of A Brief Theology of Periods (Yes, Really), several books in the award-winning Five Things to Pray series and an editor at The Good Book Company. She helps teach kids and serves on the mission core team at her church, Chessington Evangelical Church, in Surrey, UK.

This is such a unique and interesting topic of conversation that we truly don’t talk about enough, and I’m so thankful for Rachel leading it! In this episode, Rachel talks about what scripture says about women’s periods and how we’ve been culturally raised to be secretive about periods. 

Rachel also dives into the topic of another book she wrote called Is This It? which talks about the infamous quarter-life crisis and feeling like “is this really all there is?” It’s easy for us to be unhappy or dissatisfied when we have high hopes and big dreams, and we feel like we’re living this monotonous life. But I love when Rachel says “Life is short and eternity is long, and it’s very easy to get swept up in what now looks like or even what the next 50 years look like. But if we really believe that we’re headed to this glorious future with the Lord Jesus, then we’re not going to sweat the next 50 years.” Such a beautiful reminder that no matter what our lives look like today, as believers we know that our future is bright.
