Happy Hour #196: Rachel Henry

My guest for The Happy Hour # 196 is Rachel Henry. Rachel is wife to her high school sweetheart, Simon, and they have six beautiful children whom she's home-schooled for the last two years. Rachel and her family reside in Florida where they like to live like they're on vacation every day! Friends, I'm going to get straight to it - today's show is difficult to listen to. It's difficult, but incredibly powerful and full of hope and healing amidst tragedy. A few warnings: in the episode today Rachel talks about the night that her home was broken into and she was raped. I encourage younger ears to have an adult listen first. Also, if you struggle with fear around these topics, have a trusted friend listen first and guide you on if you should listen and/or any parts you should skip. What Rachel has experienced is absolutely horrific. As you listen to her share her story, you will also hear loud and clear the hope she carries, and how God has been with her and her family through their journey. I was floored listening to her describe the trial and how she faced her attackers and told them she forgave them, and how she's prayed for them. In the last part of the show, Rachel talks about her journey of healing and how crucial it was to find the right therapy. Rachel describes the effectiveness of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) with traumatic experiences and how it could help others. I am incredibly grateful to Rachel for her vulnerability and sharing her story so that others would be encouraged and have hope. {You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends.
