Do you need to refine and restore your life? Feeling overwhelmed or distanced from intimacy with God? Or do you just need time away to refresh?

One of the things I love about my guest Rachel Swanson is that she has a deep-rooted passion to help women refine the lies holding them back and restore their hearts back to God’s truth. She has a way of delivering what you need to hear in the most loving way. It’s like she shows up on your doorstep on a cold winters day with hot chocolate and wisdom. You know you’re not alone and have a friend who loves you … that’s Rachel.

Rachel is a best-selling and multiple award-winning author, speaker, podcaster, and life coach. Her newest book, Refine and Restore: Revive Your Heart, Release Your Purpose, is out now. I’ve read it … it’s powerful.

You may be familiar with Rachel because of her best-selling and award-winning book, Big and Little Coloring Devotional, which was birthed by her own struggle to keep it together as a busy mama of three children under two years old. She gets it y’all … she has been in that winter season and crying out for God to refine and restore her heart. When someone has walked through it .. lean in and learn.
