Self-Care Tips, Attachment to God and Doing Your Work with Rachael Hunt Elmore on the 8KP Podcast!

Updated: Jul 25, 2023

"We've gotta look backwards and deal with our stuff so that it doesn't become our kids' stuff in the future." ~ Rachael Hunt Elmore, LPCC

Episode 24 (Monday, July 17) is a conversation with Rachael Hunt Elmore, Author of A Mom is Born, Bible Wisdom and Practical Application for Taking Care of Yourself and Your Baby and Licensed Professional Counselor.

Rachael the 8KP Podcast's first second timer. Her content once again includes beautiful advice for how to take care of yourself well both practically and affordably. Though her book is written for the new mom, this mom whose been in the trenches for 11.5 years found it encouraging and meaningful for the now. Some parts led me to reflection and some gave me ideas for how to wrap around new parents and some parts made me think about some changes I could instill in my day to day life in this tween season!

I hope you'll give it a listen.

May it reach the ears that need to hear it.

May teams and tools be developed that help leave a legacy of love.

You are wanted here.

~ Adi Tilford, 8000 Promises Podcast
