Friends, this podcast is powerful! My friend Rachel Phillips is brave and beautiful and amazing! She shares her story on the podcast of the anxiety that has been gripping her since she was a young girl. This is a story many of us can relate to and yet, sometimes we don’t talk about it. My hope is that in hearing Rachel’s story, those who suffer can know that they are not alone. There is help and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We touch on marriage, kids, parents, moms, and how anxiety can affect the entire family. We talk about the isolation and shame that can accompany anxiety. We even talk about the church and what role the church can play when it comes to suffering. Rachel courageously lets us in on all of it and we are better for it. If you have anxiety or if you love someone who does, you won’t want to miss this! This is a triumphant story filled with truth and hope, redemption and joy!
An exciting and fun part of her story is that Rachel’s husband, Josh Phillips, is an American Ninja Warrior! He is called the Family Ninja and can be found on Facebook at @familyninja.
Here is a beautiful, inspiring video they made for American Ninja Warrior: https://vimeo.com/198150018
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
