Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night!
In today’s episode, we’re talking to my sweet friend Mariko Clark, or Marri, as I call her. Marri an amazing writer who writes about hard questions, hope, and the Holy Spirit over on her blog, MarikoClark.com. Her writing is deep and real, and always makes me cry (in the very best way), but she tells the truth about life with pinches of humor and wit and sarcasm that leave you laughing, while you’re crying. It’s just the best.
Marri is also on my team here, working as my assistant, and our community manager, and basically just keeping every bit of this ship running. So we’re such a fan of her, and I’m also a huge fan of today’s conversation!
Today, Marri and I are talking about rest and self-care — two things we have been learning a LOT about lately (mostly the hard way, of course!).
We’re talking about why it’s so hard for us to take care of ourselves as women, how to get over the guilt and shame that sometimes comes along with it, what God says about rest and self-care, how to rest, how much rest we actually need, how to find pockets of time where we can take care of ourselves (even in the midst of crazy-busy seasons), and so much more.
We’re also sharing a pretty big piece of news in this episode, so make sure to stay tuned until the end!
The other thing I wanted to make sure to tell y’all is that this is our last episode of Season 2 of the Girls Night podcast! I can’t believe we reached the end so fast!
We’re going to take a break for a month or two (in the name of rest and self-care, and also so we can record more awesome episodes for y’all!) but we will absolutely be back with Season 3. We’re already getting excited for it.
So, with that said, you can listen to this episode in a few different ways.
